GMB 2021: Ashanti Region’s Sarfoa crowned winner

The Ghana’s Most Beautiful crown is heading back to the Ashanti Region, the region of royalty, after its representative in this year’s edition, Sarfoa, was crowned winner on Sunday.

Born Benedicta Asamoah, Sarfoa beat competition from five others to win the GH¢10,000 cash, the brand new 4X4 car from MG Auto Ghana Limited, and the crown.

The 24-year-old research assistant is sending the pride back to the Ashanti Region exactly 10 years after Sally Akua Amoakowah Mensah won it.

Volta Region’s Setor came second while Western Region’s Manu was third.

Fourth was Upper East Region’s Wedaga with Oti Region’s Akosua and Bono Region’s Mfodwo coming fifth and sixth respectively.

It was a night of keen competition at the National Theatre, the venue of attraction, as the six finalists slugged it out with breathtaking performances in the first round.

Manu, representing the West, from Asankragwa to be precise, started it all with her performance that aroused security awareness.



Akosua’s passionate appeal for mentorship for young girls followed.

On her heels with her performance was Wedaga, who championed reproductive health education, calling for the subject to be discussed openly.


Then, came the real-life medical officer, Setor, whose performance on the crucial night denounced mental health stigmatisation, a move that was entrenched by an unprecedented performance by past contestants of the beauty reality show – GMB United.


Then came Bono Region’s Mfodwo, whose advocacy for orphans touched a number of viewers including guest-cum-long-time judge Linda Ampah.


The eventual winner, Sarfoa, was the last performer in the first round as she espoused an agenda – Agenda BRRVF – to demand a proper rehabilitation of the country’s prisoners.
