Emmanuel Eyaba, co-founder and MD at Blu-Moon Imaginationz talked about the reason behind the prizes and their expectations ‘’we want to make a bold statement with the pageant that is why we are giving mouth watering prizes to the winners because there is need for our pageant to stand out. Basically, the Face of Peace Africa Pageant is looking at empowering the African girl child. We are not just looking for ladies who are 6ft tall and elegant, we are looking for ladies who have brains, who are very intelligent and can stand in front of governors, we intend to package them in that light’’.
