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.
If you were present at the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant, you already know the results of the event. If by chance you missed watching it or would love to re-watch it, now you can! Featuring 88 beauties from all over the world vying for the Miss Universe crown, this was a mix of cultures, beauty and colours! Jamaica’s own Kaci Fennell respresented well but if you want to see her grace the stage again, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
As the Coronation of Ms. Universe 2015 fast approaches, countries all over the globe are gleaming with excitement and showing support for their favorite contestant. With no doubt, the contestants are flamboyantly showcasing their walks, elegant poses and beautiful smiles in an effort to make an impression on both the judges and the public at large.
Here in Jamaica, the home crowd is cheering for our new dearly beloved Kaci Fennell. Kaci is from the parish of Kingston and St. Andrew. She is a 24 year old, long-legged beauty who radiates sunshine from her motherland. It has been seen that she is creating a buzz in the competition already, as photos from the Ms. Universe Fan Poll Page of her are shared and liked daily. Jamaican supporters locally and across the diaspora surely announce their strong faith in her, as they encourage our fellow Jamaicans to support our reigning beauty queen.
She posts pictures daily on her social media accounts and fans just can’t help but fall in love with the humble being that she is. Various comments have been made about the reason Jamaicans are so pleased with her, many of which states that there is something unique about Kaci.
Her official Miss Universe interview has her boasting about Jamaica’s warmhearted people, our music, our cuisine and the “vibes and ting”. The Jamaican people have no doubt that Kaci will be a top contender in the competition.
As the Coronation approaches speedily, we set our clocks, phones, tablets on alarm to celebrate our remarkable country and the beauty that represents us as a people.
BRING HOME THE CROWN KACI!!!!
The 63rd Miss Universe Pageant will take place on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015.
