Students at Maseno University over the weekend took part in Mr. and Miss Audition exercise that was held in Maseno University Students Center hall. Interested models in the University appeared before a panel of judges that looked into them so that the best candidates could be chosen and be allowed to participate in a modeling task.
The candidates who will have successfully gone through the modeling challenge will then present themselves before a final panel of judges during the main Mr. and Miss Maseno event where the winning couple will be selected.
The male models appeared before the judges in black pair of trousers, white fitting shirt and 1” black shoes whereas the females presented themselves in black pair of trousers, a fitting vest and 6” high heel shoes.
According to Judge Ashton Pravin, most of the models were not very much prepared for the modeling task. “Some of them could not express themselves well when asked questions while others couldn’t provide answers to simple general knowledge questions,” he said.
He however mentioned that he was optimistic that the whole exercise will turn out to be a success as he believes the models will catch up with the competition heat.
Mr. Erick Mullah, SOMU’s Entertainment Director told Magazine Reel on Monday that the main Mr. and Miss Maseno event will take place on 26th of March 2016. He said that proper arrangements for the event are underway to ensure the event becomes a great accomplishment.
He nonetheless told Magazine Reel that the event will be heralded by a Cultural week that will run from 18th to 25th March 2015. He said the event will be the first of that kind to happen in the University and it is aimed at giving the comrades chance to appreciate other people’s culture and also learn other people’s ways of life.
“I am optimistic this preceding event will be able to break the tribal boundaries witnessed among college students for long,” said Mr. Mullah.
Last year’s Mr. and Miss Maseno event held at the University’s graduation square on 14th March saw Timothy Omondi and Mildred Wandia as the winning couple of Mr. and Miss Maseno respectively.
