Actress and media personality Joselyn Dumas is eyeing two awards at the 2018 Glitz Style Awards.
The co-host of Drive Time on Joy FM, who never ceases to dazzle on the screens and the red carpet, is arguably one of Ghana’s fashion and lifestyle trendsetters.
For her dazzling fashion, Joselyn has been nominated for the ‘Best Dressed Celebrity on the Red Carpet’ and ‘Movie Personality of the Year’ categories of this year’s awards.
For the ‘Best Dressed Celebrity on the Red Carpet’ award, she faces competition from Zynnell Zuh, Nana Ama McBrown, and Elikem Kumordzie.
The bubbly actress will also battle Zynnell Zuh, Nana Ama McBrown, and James Gardiner for the coveted ‘Movie Personality of the Year’ award.
The annual Glitz Style Awards, in its fourth season, celebrates individuals setting trends and raising standards with their fashion style.
The 2018 edition of the awards, slated for Saturday, September 1, seeks to strengthen the growing fashion industry by establishing, developing and promoting international industry standards here in Ghana.
