Miss Universe 2017: Meet Miss Jamaica who took the Afro mainstream (photos)
By Sewe Ishola,
Miss South Africa may have won the recently held Miss Universe pageant but the name, Davina Bennett is the one on everyone’s lips.
Jamaica’s representative at the pageant won the hearts of many as she rocked her Afro at the event.
Although she emerged 2nd runner up, she proved to be a winner as a lot of social media users named her their own winner. She wrote on her Instagram page after the show:
“I did not win but I got what I was seeking. I won the hearts of many, I got to highlight Deaf awareness, I stand as the first afro queen to have made it thus far, I represented my little Island and I received allll the love one could possibly wish for…. THANK YOU!!!
I came, I conquered and if you know me, then you know that’s just another story and you will be seeing a lot more from me???
To all the queens that represented, congrats and to our new Miss Universe @demileighnp go conquer the world you are indeed a gem!??
