The evening started with Miss Esmeralda Nana Efua Griffin taking home the prestigious crown as High School’s Most Beautiful 2017.
“I am very humbled to receive this award. I really cherish this award, not because it names me as the Icon of the Year, but simply because I got it from you. I thank the organizers of the show for presenting this award and I would also say a big thank you to all of you for choosing me as your Icon of the year. It is an amazing feeling to finally know that the tireless hard work being put into the comedy industry is being noticed by our little brothers and sisters in the second cycle level. This only tells me one thing; Ghcomedy has a very bright future because the next generation has accepted it.” DKB said after receiving his recitation.
