The organisers of the much-talked about and anticipated 2016 Miss Bakau Nawettan are hoping for a successful event, which is taking place on Saturday 8th October 2016 at the Basketball Court, Independence Stadium in Bakau, starting at 9pm.
The coastal settlement of Bakau has successful staged its nawettan with both knockout and league finals played last weekend.
This year’s Miss Bakau Nawettan is jointly organised by the Bakau Sports Committee in collaboration with the Sports Journalists’ Association of The Gambia (SJAG) and Emid Promotion.
The event, according to the organisers, will not only showcase beauty, but as well as brains and talents that the contestants are endowed with.
“We are looking forward to a successful event because everything is in place and the contestants are rehearsing very well every evening at the Alliance Franco. The tickets are D100 and D150 after midnight and we are calling on the general public to attend the event at the Basketball court in Bakau,” Lamin Nyang of Emid Promotion told Observer Sports.
Alieu Ceesay, Secretary General of the Sports Journalists’ Association of The Gambia (SJAG) said his association is a professional body comprising of practicing sports journalists. “We conceived the idea to partner with the Bakau Sports Committee in organising the event to better help in raising funds for the association in order to effectively implement its activities.”
The little proceeds from the event, according to SG Ceesay, will be use in the interest of the association and its members.
Fatou Wally, a member of the organising committee said the contestants are quite ready to thrill the audience, adding that there will be musical entertainment by Mighty Joe, Team Kunda and Karafa among other artists.
