Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

THE com­pe­ti­tion to find the ugli­est look­ing man in Bu­l­awayo has been post­poned to next month af­ter spon­sors high­lighted they needed more time to make the event a block­buster on the city’s en­ter­tain­ment cal­en­dar.

Mr Ugly Bu­l­awayo which was sup­posed to be held at Ce­cil Ho­tel to­mor­row will now be held at the same venue on Septem­ber 30.

Event or­gan­iser Apama Ma­chowa said: “Devine As­sign­ments who’re host­ing and spon­sor­ing the event in Bu­l­awayo want more time to mar­ket the event hence their sug­ges­tion to post­pone the pageant to next month.”

He said the names of the 12 fi­nal­ists would be un­veiled a few days be­fore the fi­nale as they want them to be a sur­prise. The na­tional fi­nale will be held in Oc­to­ber in Harare once again. The con­test has al­ready held its pre­lim­i­nary rounds for Harare with two-time cham­pion, Wil­liam Masv­inu shrug­ging off com­pe­ti­tion from five other con­tes­tants to win a place in the Mr Ugly Harare provin­cial fi­nals. The man who will be crowned Mr Ugly Zim­babwe will go on to rep­re­sent the coun­try at Mr Ugly Africa. “I was in South Africa or­gan­is­ing Mr Ugly Africa and things are shap­ing up. We’re yet to fi­nalise the dates how­ever,” said Ma­chowa. Last year 42-year-old Mai­son Sere won the Mr Ugly con­test amid an up­roar from fel­low con­tes­tants who deemed him too hand­some for the ti­tle. – Twit­ter @bon­ganinkunzi
