The Insignia Group which holds the franchise for Miss Universe Ghana, formally announced that reigning Miss Universe, Leila Lopes will visit the country as reported by the local website GhanaWeb. According to the report, Leila Lopes is expected to visit the West African nation on June 9-12.
Miss Lopes was invited by the Insignia Group to formally launch the Miss Universe Ghana competition in an exclusive event to be hosted by Yayra Nego, Miss Ghana Universe 2011, in the capital city of Accra.
Moreover, it also said that aside from Ghana, she is also touring ‘Senegal, La Cote d’Ivoire, Togo and Nigeria’.
Miss Lopes is currently in Lisbon, Portugal for a series of photo shoots and tv appearances.
With this welcoming news, it is apparent, especially for most African nations, that both Miss Universe and Miss World organisations are reaching out to the continent.
