Miss Universe Competition Snubs Afro-Wearing Jamaican Contestant

The recently concluded Miss Universe competition, saw 22-year-old South African Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters declared the winner of the prestigous pageant, amid social media controversy. After the announcement was made, many were outraged with how the world-reknowed competition overlooked the Jamaican representative Davina Bennett.

Davina Bennett who was the only contestant to participate in the competition with an afro, was slated to win the competition. The fan favorite was snabbed but nonetheless managed to bag the second-runners up position. A symbol of resistance, the afro has been associated with a distinctly proud African queen. And it did not take much for Bennett to make public her reasons for wearing her afro on a global stage.Β  Acknowledging her defeat, Davina took to Instagram to thank fans for her support and highlight her charities.

The Miss Universe Pagaent is still yet to comment.
