ZIMBABWE’S representatives flew the country’s flag high at the just-ended fourth edition of the Little Mister and Miss Africa Continental finals in Lagos, Nigeria, on Friday.

The competition, which attracted 10 countries, saw Tamar Kunashe Muchineuta, Aiden Murambidzi, and six-year-old Dellish Masango holding their own.

The continental grand event gives each participant a unique experience.

Speaking from Nigeria, Zim’babwes pageant director, Shalom Museba, said the future is bright for the young models.

“We had three participants from home, including Tamar, who was crowned the Innovate Queen and she won four crowns.

“Aiden was crowned Little Mister Africa, Mr Popularity, Best Talent, Mr Photogenic and Multimedia while Dellish was Toto Miss Africa second runner-up.

“Ten countries participated with the pageant aiming at celebrating cultural diversity through pageantry.”

Museba added:

“They do these pageants every year and last year we went to South Africa and this year we went to Nigeria.

“We are looking forward to hosting the same pageant in the coming year in Zimbabwe.

“After this pageant, we will have representatives from Zimbabwe to represent us as continental ambassadors.

“This means a lot to me seeing these little kids excelling at the continental stage, we just need a little support since we have other kids who failed to participate due to lack of funds.”

Some of the countries which participated include Kenya, Sierra Leone, Zambia, Ghana, Lesotho, South Sudan, Uganda, Malawi and South Africa.
