Chikwanha hotel to host Mr Ugly Chi-town

HARARE - All roads will lead to Chikwanha Hotel for Mr Ugly Chitungwiza pageant set for October 14.

Hilarious Apama Styles frontman David Machowa fondly referred to as Apama in the showbiz circles is the main man behind the event.

“All is set for the pageant and we are calling for more interested contestants,” said Apama.

The winner will walk away with an undisclosed package.

“Preparations are at an advanced stage and winners will walk away with different prizes including various hampers,” he said.

A number of ladies are expected to sit as judges on this event.

Last Saturday Apama was in Mutare at Pavilion Leisure Centre where he crowned Mike Nyamukapa who shrugged off stiff completion from other contestants as Mr Ugly Manicaland Province.

Mr Ugly Harare which was last year held at City Sports Bar in the capital was won by William Masvinu of Epworth.

Speaking to the Daily News, Apama said the event was proving popular each day and is working tirelessly to host the pageant in all the provinces before year end.

“Winners from different provinces will contest for Mr Ugly Zimbabwe later this year.

Mr Ugly pageant was started in Matabeleland Province some couple of years ago before it spread to Harare and other provinces.

The event is growing bigger with each passing day despite that it is poorly funded.
 
For instance Masvinu only got a paltry $100 for being the winner.

Masvinu was reportedly complaining that Mr Ugly pageant only brought fame in his life but failed to bring financial benefits.

Masvinu competed with other four contestants — “all potential winners’ namely Chinotimba Admire, Derek Chavhi, Yolum Banda and Freddy Mwando who posed a stiff competition for him.
 
“Ugliness is not a curse but something you should be proud of yourself just like handsomeness or beautifulness,” said Masvinu. - Vasco Chaya
