Competing queens for the Miss Dumba title Saturday took on stage enthralling performances in which they mimicked some key personalities, late and living, who hailed from the Upper West Region.

Various contestants mimicked a plethora of personalities but the mimicry of the seasoned medical practitioner, the legendary Sir Edward Mwinyour Gyader by contestant Lilian Naalu-Ib brought many an audience to terms with the life of the surgical doctor.

Lilian’s impressionist performance upstage took two forms to depict the personality of her copycatted character as well as his career.

The first department of her performance took the form of a radio interview in which she profiled the life of her mimicked personality.

Mimicking the career of Sir Gyader, Miss Lilian adorned herself in professional medical attire in which she diagnosed a hernia patient and went ahead to carry a surgery on the patient.

The icing on the cake was the point Lilian mimicked Sir Gyader’s usage of a flashlight to perform surgery as he is said to have been doing during his very active days.

The performance denied audiences the blink of their eyes and the waft of their ears as they watched and listened in craving the life Story of the Upper West hero.

Speaking in an interview with Miss Lilian backstage, she said the life of the surgical doctor is one of a selfless and human-loving kind and that was what motivated her to mimic him to her audience.

“He is full of compassion, one of a rare kind who loves people and lives his life for humanity,” Lilian praised, saying that his [Sir Gyader] life is worthy of emulation.

Lilian has found compassion for mental health and the wellbeing of the mentally disabled – as she volunteers for the Bahass Foundation – and would leverage the crown of Miss Dumba to serve this class of people in society.

“Mental health is my area of concern and will help the mentally disabled as Bahass is already doing, should I win the crown,” she said.

With all her ambitions and goodwill for society, what will keep Miss Lilian in the competition and consequently win the Miss Dumba title to impact society is the generosity of your votes.
