Miss Earth Ghana 2019 Abena Appiah is conquering the online world once more with a video that shows her delivering Tagalog punchline that’s a hit among netizens.
She said it at an event where she talked about the importance of conserving water.
“I want to end by saying water is life. Let’s conserve water by always turning off water faucets,” she said, then changed her facial expression and said: “Gumamit ng tabo, timba, at palang-Ghana!”
Prior she had incorporated Tagalog phrases into her introductions. Two of her lines were “Ang batang malakas kumain ay laging may Ghana!” and “Kung ikaw ay nalulungkot at tinatamad, kailangan mo ng pampa-Ghana!”
Abena is good at Filipino as she’s good friends with Filipino beauty queen MJ Lastimosa. The two were Miss Universe 2014 batchmates and remained in contact.
The Miss Earth 2019 is on Oct. 26 at Cove Manila at Okada Manila.
