The winner of 2019 Miss Ghana beauty pageant, Rebecca Kwabi, has opened up on the huge backlash she and her runners-up received recently.
They were tagged as ugly and did not deserve the crown, and win as first and second runner-ups.
However, the ladies say they were not bothered by the reports because it served good to them.
In a news programme monitored by YEN.com.gh on GHOne TV, the winner, Kwabi, said the many negative reports did not affect her negatively, but rather positively.
According to her, she has high self-esteem and knows she is beautiful, therefore, she sees no need in reacting to claims by Ghanaians that she is ugly.
Asked if she has rescinded on her decision to represent Ghana at the Miss World, Kwabi says she is beautiful and capable of that and so nothing would stop her.
“I am beautiful, confident, and very capable of representing Ghana at the Miss World. Nothing can stop me,” she stressed.
The first and second runner-ups, Sarah Odei-Amoani, and Deborah Opoku Sarfo, respectively, said they were also not bothered about the ugly tag.
According to them, the negative backlash brought them massive hype leading to increased followers on social media.
The two believed the ugly tag benefited them more than people thought was going to hurt them.
Revealing what could cause their bad photos which generated the controversy, Sarah said it could be from the low-quality mobile phones used by the patrons of the show.
Therefore, they should blame their phones for the poor images.
They denied that it was a make-up flaw, stressing that: “You can’t use a poor quality phone to take a photo and expect it to look nice, they should blame themselves because we know we are beautiful.”
“Also, beauty is not always physical. We have inward beauty too,” Deborah quickly chipped in.
“But on a more serious note, Ghanaians should project their own to the world and not try to bring them down with negative reports,” she cautioned.
