The Cultural showcase is a segment of competition where each of the 25 Finalists has to showcase a traditional dance from her native land. The purpose of this segment is to encourage every participant to be culturally grounded and understand their heritage. Miss Africa USA Contestants are very unique because they find themselves growing up in two different cultures, being African and being American. It is important to understand your heritage as well as assimilate in the society where you are growing up and get the best of both. Such is the unique beauty of these young ladies. They are Judged on creativity, originality, poise and entertainment value.
Miss Ethiopia, Miss Guinea and Miss Cameroon are ready for the showdown.
The event which commenced at 4.40pm and concluded at 9.30pm, attracted the Paparazis and the community at large. There was a lot of excitement in the air as each contestant brought on very unique Traditional dances from their homeland.
