MR Eswatini 2018/19 crowning event will be held at The George Hotel (TGH) in Manzini.
On the Day of the African Child, June 16 the country’s male beauty ambassador will be crowned and will walk away with lucrative prizes. This was revealed by the Pageant Director Linda Chester yesterday. However, Chester could not reveal other prices to be won by the most handsome man in the land expect for the fully paid trip to Zanzibar.
“I can only reveal our sponsors which are Nandos, Swaziland National Youth Council, SNCAC, Shisanyama Riverstone, Bhunu Mall, New Life Entertainment, TGMR Clothing, Kunani Clothing label, Edgars, Cava clothing, Homeboys And Slim Clothing,” he said.
Coming to performers and MCs of the night and programme directors of the crowning, Chester did not want to comment as he said that the Eswatini National Council of Arts and Culture was responsible for that. Chester added that their mission on the crowning night was not only to find an intelligent, visionary, humble, focused and handsome male candidate but someone to represent the nation locally and internationally. Mr Eswatini was last crowned in 2013 being Bonelelwe Makhanya alongside Phephisa Mngometulu and Simphiwe Dlamini under the directorship of the current SWAMA President Melusi ‘ Zox’ Dlamini. Makhanya won a dance competition at the Mr World pageant, which was held in England. After winning he was roped in to be part of the choreographers for Miss World, he was also invited to attend the New York Fashion Week in 2014.
In 2015 Makhanya resigned as Mr Swaziland due to unforeseen reasons and later it was reported that he was not getting support from the mother body of the pageant; Swaziland National of Arts and Culture (SNCAC).
Tickets to this year’s crowing affair cost E250 for VIP and E 100 for general. Chester emphasised that the dress code of the night will be strictly formal.
