Miss Uganda pageant set to resurrect


Miss Uganda

If you have been following the Miss Uganda Beauty Pageant, you must have noticed that for the first time in history, Leah Kagasa is the only beauty Queen to reign for two years. For starters, Leah Kagasa won the crown for Miss Uganda during the competitions that took place in 2016 and she was crowned Miss Uganda 2016/17.

Every year, the Pageant is organized to crown a new Miss Uganda but last year (2017), the pageant’s edition was a no-show and there was no official statement from Kezzi Entertainment, the organisers of the Pageant about why the competitions didn’t happen. One of the sources at Kezzi Entertainment known as Janat Naluja confirmed to us that Leah Kagasa would continue as Miss Uganda 2017/18 until a number of issues were resolved.

This is, however, about to change as Talent Africa Group, in a March 16 Press Conference, announced their involvement with Miss Uganda. Brenda Nanyonjo the C.E.O of the Miss Uganda Pageant said at the Press Conference held at Kampala Sheraton Hotel that they are partnering with Talent Africa while penning a three-year agreement to revive the Pageant. “I believe in Talent Africa being one of the best events companies in the country and with that, I believe the Miss Uganda pageant will be a dream come true,” Nanyonjo said.

Aly Alibhai the CEO of Talent Africa they will be handling the events and the business part of Miss Uganda while Kezzi Entertainment will handle the pageantry bit of Miss Uganda. “If anyone remembers how vibrant Miss Uganda used to be, we are going to work hand in hand with Kezzi to bring back that oomph” Alibhai said.

Miss Uganda after auditions and different themed events in different regions, Miss Uganda grand finale will take place at Kampala Sheraton Hotel on August 10 and finally, Leah Kagasa will be replaced as Miss Uganda 2016/17/18.
