The Zimbabwe winner of the Mr Ugly contest was in a mock wedding with his wife last week!
In the city center, Harare, “Mr Ugly” William Masvinu and his wife Alice Chabhanga were paraded in the streets in a mock wedding.
People stampeded to catch a glimpse of the self confessed king of ugliness.
The couple danced, kissed and cut the cake. The best man at the wedding was Mr Ugly first runner up Benny Chakanyuka. The party doubled as a celebration of Masvinu’s triumph at the recent Mr Ugly national contest where he retained the title.
Besides the $1,500 from the organizers, local company, Lifel Investments gave away packages that not only benefited Masvinu, but his families as well.
Among the prizes handed to him were overalls, safety shoes and rain coats. The company also added $200 to Masvinu’s grand prize, $100 to the first runner up, Chakanyuka as well as $50 and groceries to the second runner up Funny Musekiwa.
Masvinu also won a year’s school fees for one child while the second runner up would get a term’s schools fees for his child. Lifel representative Edgar Chakanyudze, said his company was supportive on the initiative.
"We believe that ‘beauty’ comes in different forms. In support of its cause, we have decided to give each participant a complete work suit, safety shoes and rain coats," he said.
