The Face of Nairobi 2013 finals set for end month

13 November 2013, 14:12 Kevin Onyango

The Face of Nairobi is a beauty pageant aimed at nurturing budding beauties and also building the brains of models in the county. It also targets mentoring models not only into beauty queens but also into role-models who impact the society positively. Therefore, the competition aims at unveiling a goodwill ambassador who will spearhead a humanitarian cause for a year. Hence, the cause of the project this year is to fight and create awareness about breast cancer in the society.

The Face of Nairobi beauty pageant conducted an audition on August 26, 2013 where 39 contestants were shortlisted. The 39 contestants were subjected to an online voting with an aim of getting 12 finalists. A series of interactive events have been scheduled since then to take place before the gala night. On Friday last week, the models took a trip to Muteleu Maasai Traditional Village where they pitched tent for a three-day boot-camp. The models did a photo-shoot to create breast cancer awareness for a campaign dubbed Save the Boobies. This campaign will otherwise be used to prepare the goodwill ambassador on her participation within the social realms and in societal based issues.

The finalists have been undergoing  training sessions at the PrideInn Hotel from November 6 to November 29. The final showdown will take place on November 30 at the PrideInn Hotel near Graffins College, Westlands. Tickets to the event are available online at missnairobi.com for KES 1 500 and KES 2 500 for VIP tickets, inclusive of food.

Having been organised by veteran entertainment moguls, The Face of Nairobi gala night will be star-studded and celeb chromed. This event is set to be graced by some of the top entertainment and media personalities in Kenya. Phinky Ghelani will emcee the gala night alongside Dj Pierra Makena who will be giving her Midas sensual caresses to the decks. Dance hall heavyweight, Wyre the Lovechild, will seal the deal with his hit tunes while Wendy Kimani will smite the audience with her luring, lulling lyrics.
