THE long awaited Face of Port Shepstone beauty and lifestyle event took place with great success on Saturday, May 19 at the Gamalakhe Esayidi TVET college.

With over 48 models eager to get their hands on the crown in four different categories, it was clear that the competition was a tough, competitive one — leaving the panel of six judges with a challenging day, to choose the best.

Organiser Phumlani Mzobe said the show kick started with amazing performances from local artists, and guest artists from Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

“With a line-up of showcases from members of the PhumlaniM Foundation, traditional dance, poetry, hip hop, deejays and dance choreography, the crowds were left anticipating more.”

With hosts Sphesihle Nono “Jojo” Cele, an actor from telenovela Uzalo airing on SABC 1 and Nosipho Hope Mbhele, who recently got her own show on Gagasi FM, the combination guaranteed a breathtaking event to be remembered by multitudes.

Mzobe said the support the models received from their family was astonishing and highly appreciated.

“We had spectators filling up half the hall, which really made the organisers feel loved and appreciated by the community at large.

“We also had two young women fashion designers Ntwenhle and Amigu, proud members of the foundation, selected to showcase their amazing creative designs that blew the crowd away.”

“After all the showcases it was time for the long awaited crowning ceremony where, Zekethelo Mkhize(22) of Port Edward was crowned as the Queen of the Face of Port Shepstone competition. Crowned as first princess was Asavela Ndlovu from Gamalakhe and in third place, Wendy Shusha from Oshabeni.”

“In the category Miss Fabulicious, the plus size category, Palesa Thwala took the crown, Busisiwe Ngcobo was first princess and in third place was Thando Madlala from Oshabeni.

“In the Junior Queen category, Venus Hadebe from Harding took the crown, Yamkela Zangwa was first princess and Ntombenhle Ndovela from Kwa Nzimakwe was Second Princess,” said Mzobe.

Taking the lead in the male category and crowned Prince of Port Shepstone was Scelo Ngcobo from Oshabeni, the second prize went to Khethukuthula Taygram Njeya of Gcilima and in third place was Mthunzi Takani of Gamalakhe TVET college.

Mzobe said the organisers would like to congratulate all the winners and welcome them proudly as the ambassadors of goodwill. We thank all sponsors and the technical team and a more special thank you goes to the parents and guardians for their support from day one.”
