In August 2013, the Durban Youth Council held their Mr and Miss Durban Youth Pageant. The pageant has the same structure as a normal pageant except with the added requirement of community service as that is the aim of the Durban Youth Council’s existence. Participants were required to partake in community service and their involvement and ability to help other people was an important factor in the pageant. As we are a non-profit organisation, the pageant also aimed to raise funds that are used to fund other community based projects throughout the remainder of the year in various committees on the Durban Youth Council.
The night was filled with energetic performances by dance groups Warrior Knights, Illusion and the KZN Dance Centre. The crowd was wowed by solo performances by Rorke Kemp, Brittany Daleman and Ekta Bramdev. To end off the night with a bang, Rhyme Force One performed their hit single Playhouse. The success of the night would not have been the achieved without our amazing models. The journey of Mr & Miss DY ended up with 9 boys and 8 girls competing for the title of Mr & Miss Durban Youth on the night the models dazzled the audience with their good looks and stunning clothing.
It was definitely a night to remember with celebrity guest judges Tatum Keshwar and Lee Folkard eventually having to decide the winner of Mr & Miss DY 2013.
Armand Van Zyl took the title of Mr Durban Youth 2013 and Minenhle Mkhwanazi the title of Miss Durban Youth 2013.
All of our models were dressed by Debonairs Suit Hire, PEG, Minty’s and Cinderella Dress.
