Kalpa Vrikshika an Applied Computer Technology junior and Akintomide Akinyemi an Information Systems and Technology junior are the new holders of the Mr and Miss USIU-Africa crown. In a competition that was held last Thursday at the Thika Road Mall convention center, the two saw off tough competition from other contestants to walk away with the title of the beauty contest.


The night saw various contestants taking the runway with incredibly awesome designs on the show but it was Kalp and Akintomide who won the hearts of the judges and the crowd alike to take home the title of this annual, charity event.

The position of Mr & Miss USIU-Africa is essentially that of student ambassador within the university. The holders of this position are expected to take part in charity work.

The annual event held every November was used to raise money for cancer research. This year’s beauty contest saw different activities take place besides the contestants fighting for the crown.
