Gambian Talents Promotion’s Eva Sarr, the Host of the Xew Xew Jamano show and co-host of the Lutakh Gambia du dem show organized a best dressed competition for the kids during the recently ended Koriteh.
Eva Sarr made a special video in which she announced the criteria and prizes for the winners. According to Eva, she wanted the kids to dress modestly and do “Tach tan” . She emphasized that she was not looking for kids who wear expensive stuff but kids who just dress nice and look good . “Dama buga haleh bu sanseh, dama buga haleh bu nice, dama buga haleh buye “def tach tan”. Said Eva in the video. She appealed to parents around the world to send her their kid’s Koriteh pictures. After a thorough review of all the pictures, 3 kids were selected as the final winners.
Sura Serehene son to Ya Kombo Koitala of London won the third place
Muhammed Njie, son of Kai Ndure and Jabel Njie of the Gambia won the second place and Fatoumata Cham, daughter of Awa Bayo Cham and Musa Cham of Leeds won the first place and crowned as the Best Dressed kid of the Gambian Talents 2015 Koriteh competition .
Each of these kids will get a cash prize base on where they live.
Dodou boy will get D500 cash prize
Sura and Fatima will get 20 pounds each.
We at Gambian Talents are proud of Eva for coordinating this project. We also send congratulations to the kids and thank their parents for making them look nice. All the kids that participated in the competition are winners. The whole idea was to bring the kids together, have fun and most importantly remind the parents that their children don’t have to wear something expensive to look beautiful or handsome.
We hope to do more projects like this.
