The event will take place on the 2nd of September 2017. The titleholder gets to represent Ghana at the 2017/2018 Miss Universe Pageant.

Menaye Donkor said:

As a former titleholder, the Miss Universe experience taught me a great deal, and has shaped me to be the person I am today. It taught me how powerful I am as a woman, and through it I have become resilient and capable to do all things I put my mind to.

I am still a part of Miss Universe, and it is a part of who I am. As they say, “once a queen always a queen”; In the eyes of many you are, and will always be, a queen and treated as a representative of your country.

I feel very passionate about, and responsible for building and maintaining the reputation of the Miss Universe Ghana pageant. I am also extremely motivated to offer the same opportunities that I was given to other young Ghanaian women.

Several Ghanaian celebrities including Yvonne Okoro, footballer Sulley Muntari (Menaye’s husband), Deborah Vanessa, Bola Ray, Koffi of Nineteen57byKod turned up for the event.
