Maltz Promotions, organisers of Miss Universe Ghana, have declared their readiness to stage the 2018 edition of the pageant on Saturday night in an atmosphere of glitz and glamour.
The event will be held at the luxurious Labadi Beach Hotel and will be broadcast live on Joy Prime TV at 7:00pm.
The lead organiser of the show, Menaye Donkor, who is also a former winner of the competition, says her team will leave no stone unturned in its quest to give patrons a good show.
Items lined up on the bill indicate that this year’s event will be a complete package of good music, talent displays, intellectual contest and all-round beauty.
King Promise and Adina will be on the bill to give the contestants, judges and patrons the best tunes from their individual repertoires to spice up the night.
