With the debut doing numbers, Jamaican Beauty Queen Davina Bennett fires off another “Afro Friday“! Here she encourages her fans to show off their Afros and invite others to join in on the fun. Once again whether a small puff or a huge ball of soul, make sure you stand tall and proud of your hairstyle today, tomorrow, and forevermore. Check out some of the highlights below., and follow the hashtags #FreeYourFroFriday and #AfroFriday.
This is for the Soul Sistas, the Goddesses with the ‘Fro, and wearers of the natural Crown. If you were under a rock for some reason, Miss Universe 2017 happened, and Miss South Africa emerged as the Crown holder. While all that is being said, many were paying attention to a young Jamaican who was placed 2nd Runner Up. That young Jamaican is Davina Bennett! Rocking a lovely afro, she won the hearts of many worldwide! From International Media, to yours truly, to Social Media singing her praises, she was a winner and Queen in our eyes. Another Jamaican afro rocker who sang praises was Miss Jamaica 2005 and Media Personality, Terri-Karelle Reid. Inspired by the recent events, she kicked off #AfroFriday on Twitter and Instagram with the current Miss Jamaica Universe. It has resulted in a Social Media sea of ‘Fros from both male and female. Whether a small puff, or a huge ball of Soul, be a part of #FreeYourFroFriday! Check out some of who rocked their ‘fro below, and follow the hashtags!

Thank you for representing Jamaica. Thank you for being a Caribbean representative. You made moves that some would’ve said were unattainable. You’ve embraced your own beauty, and the world loved you. You stand tall with many Beauty Queens before you that have donned the “Jamaica” sash, and you’ve brought our culture to another big platform. You have carried yourself well.
As you continue your journey, remember you’re doing this for the little girl who was teased because her hair was “nappy”, the young woman who was refused opportunities because she was “too dark”, for those who were told “Jamaicans can’t do anything good”, let them see you shine on the world stage and show them that they can do anything that their heart wishes.
Always remember to be true to who you are. Don’t ever be afraid of showing the world that you don’t have to be from a big city, having the big name, be of a lighter complexion, having the straightest of hair to achieve greatness. We are proud to have had Queens with their unique flair over the years, so now you show people that the afro is YOUR Crown!
From Steve Harvey trying to hold his excitement when conversing with you, to your outfits capturing the attention of many, to the chants of “JAMAICA” in the audience, to your name being on all the headlines…
YOU ARE THE PEOPLE’S QUEEN!
Thank You, Davina Bennett.
