Afua Akrofi was chosen to represent Ghana at Miss World 2017 due to the fact that Miss Ghana 2017 was held late and therefore the queen would not have had enough time to prepare to represent Ghana. This decision was taken by national director of the Miss Ghana pageant, Inna Mariam Patty.
The Ghanaian beauty queen will battle it out with 117 other queens from countries across the world, all gunning to be the 67th Miss World, taking over from Stephanie Del Valle of Puerto Rico.
However, Margaret Derry Mwintuur, Miss Ghana 2017 will be sent to Miss World 2018.
