Leandrea Louw - The annual Mr Walvis Bay pageant sees about 24 contestants competing for the coveted title on 9 March at the Walvis Bay Town Hall.

Under the theme “Bikers Boys”, three juniors, eight teen and thirteen seniors compete for the coveted Mr Walvis Bay Junior, Mr Walvis Bay Teen and Mr Walvis Bay Senior crowns.

This year’s master of ceremony and guest artist is Brendt Wayne de Wet from Stellenbosch. Brendt matriculated in 2002 and spent four years in London thereafter. This is where his love for music began.

Following his return to South Africa in 2008 to do a service year for Christ, Brendt’s passion for youth development started. A year later he embarked on a writing and soul-searching journey.

From 2010 to 2016 Brendt worked on song-writing, music and personal development after which his career skyrocketed. He was in the top 5 of Mr South Africa, owns his own wine label and he featured on multiple television shows including Expresso as well as programmes on SABC 2.

Brendt is also an active anti-bullying activist and his single “Never Give Up”, featured on the top 30 chart of Radio KC, and was playlisted on Heart FM.

Keeping it local

Performances by local artists at this year’s Mr Walvis Bay pageant include Keenen Carelse, JR Cupido, Dance Group Saiyans, Space the Don, Latino the Gemini and H-Bomb.

After the crowning, the Mr Walvis Bay team will collect school stationary from the public in front of dedicated shops, where after they will hand it over to schools in the harbour town.

According to pageant organiser Danny Morkel, this year’s judges are a surprise and their names will only be revealed on the night of the crowning. The winners will also walk away with various cash prizes and vouchers.

Cerano Saunderson was crowned Mr Walvis Bay 2018. His first prince was Sylvanus Nepolo, while Abner Kevin was the second prince. Nathan Jansen was crowned Mr Teen Walvis Bay, with his runners up being Timothy Coleman and Ruan van der Heever. The title of Mr Walvis Bay Junior went to Ethan Vyver, while Mathew-Ray Claasen and Nazeem McClune took the respective titles of first and second prince in this category.
