Miss West Africa began in 2008 making history with the crowning of our first ever queen, Amina Kamara from Sierra Leone. The event was established by young entrepreneur, Nana Tamakloe, with the objective of creating role models, future world leaders and good will ambassadors. The winners of Miss West Africa act as advocates for the organisation and most importantly ambassadors for various west African countries and charities.
In 2010 the concept of Miss West Africa International was introduced with a goal of discovering various regional Miss West Africa queens to compete for the ultimate Miss West Africa title, Miss West Africa International. Miss West Africa International is now a world wide beauty pageant accessible only to Miss West Africa regional winners. Miss West Africa International takes place every year, each possibly in a different location.
Local Miss West Africa beauty pageants also take place every year in the process of discovering a queen and a hopeful to win MWA International. Intense and exciting MWA beauty pageants are held all over the world, with great contests between beautiful and intelligent ladies from West Africa or of West African origin. The event is aimed at promoting west African culture, beauty and lifestyle to the foriegn world.
Miss West Africa was founded to promote a positive image for West African countries by creating awareness of the social, cultural, health, wealth and the beauty issues within West Africa.
