Meanwhile, a Japanese-Ghanaian Aisha Harumi Tochigi has won the 2020 edition of Miss Universe Japan beauty pageant.
Tochigi who is 24 years old was crowned queen ahead of 29 other contestants at the final held on October 29, 2020, in Tokyo.
The 24-year-old's win was announced in a post on the official Instagram page of the pageant which shared some photos.
Raimu Kaminashi who is Nigerian-Japanese was the first runner-up while the second runner-up position went to Yuki Sonoda.
By her win, Tochigi will be representing Japan at the next edition of the Miss Universe pageant.
This happens to the second time Tochigi has competed in the pageant.
Her first time was in 2019 when she placed in the top five.
Prior to the final, Tochigi had been very optimistic about winning as she took to her Instagram page to urge her followers to vote for her to better performance from last year.
A report YEN.com.gh sighted on Conan Daily stated that Tochigi's win makes her the second person of mixed-race to win the pageant.

According to the report, Tochigi was born on January 4, 1996, to a Ghanaian father and Japanese mother.
Though she grew up and has live in Japan throughout, Tochigi is reported to have been volunteering in Japan and Ghana since 2006.
Tochigi comes from Chiba, a city which is about 40 kilometres to the southeast of Japan's capital of Tokyo.
