MASERU — A brand new GMW Florid Super Lux 1.5i!
This is what 16 beauties will be battling to drive away at the Miss Vodacom PC FM competition on Saturday at Mathabiseng Convention Centre.
The sporty car will be handed over to the most beautiful and brainy girl at the function.
While the girls battle it out for the top prize South Africa’s hip hop giants Teargas and Jazil Brothers and local famo veteran Puseletso Seema will also do battle to keep the fans happy.
People’s Choice FM’s marketing manager, Kahuta Mpeqa, told Xpress People tickets for the biggest pageant in Lesotho are selling “just fine”.
“We are not intending on selling tickets at the gate on the day of the pageant so tickets are being sold at a special price of M200 until Monday.
“After that they will be selling for M250. So far tickets are selling just fine,” Mpeqa said.
Mpeqa said preparations for the occasion were at an advanced stage.
“The spirit is high among the girls and with the grand prize on offer we are seeing growth in their enthusiasm and preparations.”
The girls were also working as a team, he said.
“The girls are getting along so well they work as a team despite the fact that they are contenders of the Miss Vodacom PC FM title,” he said.
Mpeqa however said this year’s pageant had experienced some challenges.
“We had quite a small number of sponsors at a time we are looking to grow the brand annually. This was the biggest challenge, but we assume it is because of the global financial crisis.”
Mpeqa said the line-up of artistes is aimed at accommodating all ages.
“Miss Vodacom PC FM is a family event so we have Teargas to cater for the young generation and Jazil Brothers and Puseletso Seema to cater for the older generation,” he added.
This year’s occasion is strictly a black tie event.
“We have in the past had spectators disrespecting our black tie theme but we are hoping this year they will not have reason to just show up at the Convention Centre not dressed-up as expected.
“We urge them to just dress to impress and help Miss Vodacom PC FM become the biggest black tie event in the country,” Mpeqa said.
