Uganda’s very own Miss Uganda 2018 Quiin Abenakyo won the title of Miss World Africa and finished in 4th place out of 118 contestants at the Miss World 2018 pageant which took place in Sanyu City Arena, China on December 8th, 2018. This was the best finish for Uganda in the history of the annual beauty pageant.
Quiin Abenakyo’s stunning looks combined with her intellect, personality and impressive “beauty with a purpose” project impressed the judges throughout the competition. After Quiin won the head to head challenge and was confirmed in the top 40 semi-finalists, the entire nation got behind her to rally for votes. The online voting campaign was enhanced by numerous celebrities, socialites, influencers, politicians and corporate companies who showed support on their social media pages.
Earlier this year in April, Miss Uganda franchise holders Kezzi Entertainment announced their new joint venture partnership with Talent Africa, Uganda’s leading event, talent and entertainment company. Talent Africa promised to bring glamour, flair and showbiz to the Miss Uganda Pageant. After an extremely competitive judging process which at times faced mixed feelings from the public, the Miss Uganda team remained positive and promised to send a beauty queen that could compete on a international level at Miss World. With Quiin Abenakyo’s success at Miss World, it is clear the that judges made the right choice. The judging panel consisted of Brenda Nanyonjo, Sylvia Namutebi, Stella Nantumbwe, Nana Kagga, Brian Ahumuza, Maggie Kigozi and Zari Hassan amongst others.

Ykee Benda to compile list of “worst” Songs produced this year
As the year comes to an end, people usually make a review of how it has unfolded in terms of their specific areas of life.
Last year, musician Bebe Cool came under fire for writing a list of his favorite top artists and songs,a list that left very many disgruntled as their favorite artists were left out, while others complained that some acts that made his list were not deserving.
Looks like Ykee Benda is picking a leaf from Bebe, only this time, he will be compiling a list of the bad songs, call them not so nice songs that were produced this year.
“Am making a list of all the bad songs this year …wait for it…bad I mean not nice songs!”
Like he has asked us to be patient, we shall do just that and keep you posted on which artist makes this ‘not so good’ list.
