As Brittany Lyons of Jamaica clinched a spot to represent Jamaica in Miss World Pageant to be held on Saturday, December 13, 2008, at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, South Africa, with a completion of a photo shoot at the Jamaican Pergasus Hotel in Jamaica last night, so too, is little known Binta Binette Diao from Guinea who might be popping in to the Clayton County Performing Arts Center in Jonesboro, Georgia, on Saturday, November 1, 2008, with a whole lot of surprises.
I've said it over and over again; it's anybody's night when all the fanfare and catwalks begins to showcase the most beautiful and glamorous African ladies in Diaspora. The after party is what I'm looking forward to, and for sure, it's going to be one of those nights.
For 21-year-old Binta who stands at five-feet eight inches and weighing 145 Ibs kind of would take the panel of judges to Tobacco Road where fierce competitions are made on a turf not fabricated but real. Everybody is a winner as long as you keep your head up to focus on what's out there for you. I will be wrapping up this series on the call sheet tomorrow before I take off, and I hope Saturday night in Jonesboro will be a night to remember.
Goodluck and keep the faith!
Go Africa Go!
