Inna Mariam Patty, the CEO of Exclusive Events, organisers of the Miss Ghana pageant has said her organization has chalked unprecedented successes as organizers of the pageant.
According to her, a comparison of what the beauty queens have achieved under her management is far better than previous organisers.
She therefore debunked criticisms that the Miss Ghana brand is dead under her tutelage.
Recently, the 2010 winner of the Miss Ghana pageant, Stephanie Karikari was alleged to have said that the nation’s premier beauty pageant is “a dead brand.”
Stephanie Karikari later told Hitz @ 1 in an interview that she was misquoted but stressed that there are serious issues with the Miss Ghana brand and therefore believe that the pageant is no longer what it used to be.
Inna Mariam Patty, reacting to the criticisms, noted that, “Well, like I always say, I don’t pay attention to noise. I like to focus on what our goals and objectives are, otherwise, we would be distracted.”
She was of the view that the pageant has chalked a lot of successes under her management.“I would not say that the pageant under my reign has done better than the past. If you are talking in terms of performances of the queens at the world event or at international pageants… based on that, we’ve chalked unprecedented successes.”
Ms. Patty further noted that Exclusive Events are focused and that, “opinions are like noses, everyone has theirs.”
“I believe we live in a society that we’ve gotten discerning listeners so be the judge. Unfortunately, there is something called freedom of speech so everyone can get on air and say anything,” she added.
Exclusive Events has for some time, supported all contestants with educational sponsorship and training.
Under Inna’s management, Miss Ghana 2012, Carranzer Naa Okailey Shooter was adjudged the second runner-up at the 2013 Miss World beauty pageant.
Rebecca Asamoah, 24-year-old, Miss Ghana 2015 second runner up, was crowned the first Miss Africa Continent in May this year.
