#Zimbabwe “Mr. Ugly” Founder seals deal with #USA and #SouthAfrica partners
“It is possible to host Mr World, I am saying this because sponsors have already started pledging their support. I am working on a professional budget for it and we are on the move already. We are getting a great response but for now, I cannot disclose the budget figure,” he said.
“We are going to partner South Africa for Mr Ugly Africa whereby every country in the continent will produce their ‘own’ Mr ugly and affiliate for the Mr Ugly Africa. This will happen in South Africa in June next year.
“Then we move to Mr Ugly Europe, Mr Ugly America, Mr Ugly Asia and other continents whose winners will take part in the contests to be held in Zimbabwe. This will be achievable because I will partner with event organisers from all over the world who I also can’t disclose, at least for now.”
In October 2013, after a series of postponements, the pageant in its third edition took off after the intervention by Life Investments Company who provided prize moneys for the winners. Masvinu retained the title. The following year, the event failed to take off.
