Saturday 5 December 2020 saw models coming from all over Zimbabwe compete for the Third Annual Edition of Miss Empire 263 and for the first time the event had to be relocated from Harare to the current Empire 263 Norton Arts Centre, which was also the formal opening of the Norton branch.
The giant gazebo at the venue was packed with stunning comfortable sofas for the guests to sit down and enjoy a variety of delicious snacks prepared by the Empire 263 catering team. Light rain drizzles created a cool atmospheric weather with cool melodic music driven by Empire 263’s award-winning disk jockey, DJ Joey Lion.
They were all looking astounding as if they were coming out of the Hollywood hit TV movie. The event Emcee Entrepreneur Graduate Ian Ndunduma was jovial during the event, ensuring that the event was running smoothly just like his accent. The judges who had a hard time picking the best of the beautiful divas were A. Mangono, G. Mtetwa and 2019 Miss Empire 263 Winner M. Garawaziva.
On social media sites, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, people voted for their favorite model for a month that they decided to crown Miss Personality. Buluwayo-based model Mitchelle Sikhosana scooped Miss Personality’s title as she received the most votes due to hard work and went on to scoop the title of First Princess; Second Princess was also Bulawayo-based model Ashley Ncube and Harare-based model Gamuchirai Chaukura scooped the final Miss Empire 263 Queen.
At Empire 263, we consider every model to be a winner, as at every event, you learn something new and become a stronger version of yourself that will be well prepared for future events.
After the coronation ceremony, DJ Joey Lion and DJ Delimar played music again until almost sunrise at the new Empire 263 Norton Private Bar Center with mesmerizing disco lighting systems.
Special thanks go to the DSI media, to the Phoenix media, and to all those who took their time to come to the official opening of the Empire 263 Norton Arts Centre.
