Two finalists of this year’s Miss Ghana beauty pageant have left the competition on personal grounds.

The two, Emelia Ainooson a 20-year-old student of the Ghana Institute of Journalism and Dzifa Delloh of the University of Ghana, Legon will therefore not be part of the grand finale of the pageant on November 10.

Emelia Ainooson represented the Ashanti Region while Dzifa Dellor represented the Volta Region.

Sources who spoke to Hitz Entertainment News said the two, who were part of the final 20 contestants, might have opted out of the competition due to the extension of the pageant and activities lined up for the pageant which they said will affect their studies and examinations.

Inna Marian Patty, CEO of Exclusive Events GH, organizers of the pageant explained that, “both of them have various personal constrains. It has to do with the dates because we had to reschedule our dates. They have to write papers on that day and we wouldn’t be able to help each on that platform.”

Emelia Ainoooson told Hitz Entertainment News all though she had fan on the show, “Unfortunately it was clashing with my school semester so I had to choose between the competition and continuing [with school] and unfortunately I am at a point I can’t afford to slack in school so I had to drop out.”

The organizers gave a date that was contrary to the November 10 finale date, she said, “the competition is not an alternative to schooling.”

Emelia and Dzifa’s exit leave the competition with 18 contestants who will be vying for the Miss Ghana 2012 crown at the Accra International Conference Center.
