Harare - Zimbabwean model, Pauline Marere, was last Friday crowned the new Miss Pan-African Queen, at a pageant that took place in Lagos Nigeria.

The Miss Pan African Queen, which ran under the theme “Celebrating African women”, saw 35 beauty queens from all over African racing for US$3 000, a vehicle, film acting deal, a scholarship, a tour around Africa as well as a trip to Dubai.

The first runner-up at the prestigious pageant, Tribeau Brown from Liberia, took home US$2 000, an international scholarship, a media tour around Africa, among other things, and she was titled Miss Pan-Africa Universe.

Marere, who is the 2017 Miss University Emissary, and the 2018 Miss Africa, among other titles, said being crowned Miss Pan African was a great step that she would never take for granted.

She also described the acting career opportunity that was presented to her as her winning package, as one of her childhood dreams that had come to life.

“I am really grateful to everyone who supported me. I am happy with my winning package, especially the acting opportunity that was presented to me.

“Growing up, I used to act. I was in acting clubs and acting at a larger platform such as the African movies has always been my dream. When I was 17, I applied for acting through Mercy Johnson (Nigeria actress) and now that the opportunity has finally come to me, I will not take it for granted,” she said.

The Pan-African beauty pageant is the brainchild of La Queen Entertainment, which was founded by Wokie Dolo from Nigeria.

The pageant celebrates Africa’s diverse cultures as well as uplifting and celebrating African beauty.
