NSH hosts Cosmo City’s PAGEANT
Glamorous entertainment took center stage on 4 May at Cosmo City Junior when Nosipho Signoria Hashe (NSH) Youth Empowerment hosted this year’s pageant.
The pageant was divided into three categories: Little Miss and Mr. Cosmo City; Junior Miss and Mr. Cosmo City; and Miss and Mr. Petite.
The event attracted scores of young people from the community. Incredible performances from Tito Khoza Jackson, Lady E, Diepsloot Finest, Cash Masira, Silence Suicidal, Thabza Boy, Slesh Marc, Lala Gots and others gave the event an electrifying atmosphere.
The judges of the day narrowed their selection from 14 contestants to six finalists: Thuli Gold Tshikalane and Thomas Mkhwanazi (Junior Miss and Mr. Cosmo City), Karabo Monyane and Mashudu Ngwelo (Little Miss and Mr. Cosmo City), Lethokuhle Ngxabani (Miss Petite) Tebogo Majola (Miss Junior Princess).
Nina Gee and NSH properties awarded 12 hampers to the losing contestants. Base5 Guards sponsored the event with R4500, which they gave to the winners. Platinum Lounge sponsored the event with 20 T-shirts for the contestants and 14 soccer uniforms for Siyaphambili Football Club.
“A beauty pageant helps people identify their inner beauty,” said Nosipho Hashe, the founder of NSH Youth Development. “This is our first time doing a beauty pageant for little children. We want to show people that modeling is not about nakedness. The event was very important because we are aiming to bring change in the community. Such programmes help us keep children away from the streets.”
Hashe was happy to see local stakeholders coming together to sponsor the event, she said.
“It is so amazing,” she said. “I am very thankful for the support they are giving for the sake of developing our community. At NSH we aim to host more entertaining and developmental events. Our plan is to have at least six events in a year to make our community members happy and entertained.”
Hashe thanked all the people who made the event a success, including the judges: Pearl Mofokeng (Miss Cosmo City 2014), Althea Zanele Mathekga (Miss Personality 2014), Itumeleng Joyce Makemane (Miss Personality 2018), and Afro Jay; the make-up artist: elo M; the sponsor of registration forms to participants: Mr. Cosmo City 2018 Ambassador Dedam; and the event’s Sound sponsor: Ufulu Sounds and Entertainment.
