2017 Mr and Miss Prestige College



Omphile Rashope

They say it is possible for your thoughts to become a reality. As the life of this year’s Mr Prestige was introspected, this phenomenon was superbly proved. “I said I will do it and I made it,” Mr Prestige said.

He entered the 2016 Mr and Miss Prestige pageant where he attempted to become Mr Prestige, but he instead took the First Prince throne. During the interview, the 2017 winner, Katlego Mogotsi, gave thanks to the Lord for finally honouring him as Mr Prestige by looking at Jeremiah 29:11; “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” And that is the motto he holds.

It is always wondered what happens to the pageants after being crowned. With the Former Mr and Miss Prestige handing over the crown to Mr and Miss Prestige Katlego Mogotsi and Oratile Madiba, roles were also given. “To inspire a beauty that is diversified.” said Former Mr Prestige, Ellie Ano. He continued by justifying that as Mr and Miss Prestige, they should both be able to inspire fellow students to go after what they were born to achieve, be it in their school career or their every day lifestyle. Practical advise from former Miss Prestige, Tsaone Madumo, is “to have the vitality and enthusiasm to represent Prestige well and be able to plough back to the communities through various activities, such as charity tasks,” she said.


Congratulations to the second prince and princess Lindokuhle Gora and Kelly Lekomo respectively as well first prince Naledi Mere and princess Boitumelo Motsepe.

The panel had a BAHons Applied Language judge, Kriszti Bottyan, who greatly applauded one of the responses to a posed question of what it takes to be a good leader. This ignited the peoples’ attention even more. The response was elaborating on how a good leader needs to be firm and also understanding as well. “A good leader needs to lean on people while following their own intuition, take calculated risks, and although we’ve lost our nil potency these days, it’s almost salubrious to sort of rise to the challenge.” replied the first prince (Naledi Mere).

It was of great pleasure to witness the pageants’ way of living and not just their outer beauty since it is the inner being that counts the most- the thoughts that become reality. A word of advice by Former Miss Prestige is; “to just believe in yourself and always remember that you are not in this world for applause but for a cause,” she said.

People found themselves on the other hand of the clock too early and found themselves refusing to leave the dazzling night.

A stunning evening it was. A special thanks to the White house for bringing about a night to remember. Good luck to 2017 Mr and Miss Prestige winners and great motive to the successors who have the instinct to wing the titles.
