The Miss Uganda Beauty Pageant has always been here. I’ve known it since I was little but nothing beats last year’s contest I suppose. The contest that saw Quinn Abenakyo crowned as the eventual winner.
A recent graduate from Makerere University Business School (MUBS), Abenakyo is someone I relate to very well. Surprisingly, even though we don’t know each other personally.
She is a self made queen who I vividly recall in a video message she posted rallying the whole country to support and vote for her when she was at Miss World Contest. We voted and boy did she make us proud!
Abenakyo didn’t aim for the sky, she aimed for the Moon and this explains her success at the contest. In whatever you’re doing, always aim for the top prize. That way when you fall, you’ll be among the stars.
She may not have become Miss World but she conquered Africa. A whole continent. I could go a whole day talking about her if my word limit was unlimited like MTN offers but I have to stop.
With her Abenakyo Foundation, Queen (I intended this) has been able to not only hold our flag high in beauty contest but also helped impact the less privileged in society. She blends so well in doing it you might think she was made for charity.
Anyway, this year, a Miss Pulse category was introduced in the pageant to replace the usual Miss Popularity. You have the power to make one of those queens Miss Pulse if you follow this link: https://temp-microsite.mtnpulseuganda.dev/misspulse
Anyone you think will give us as much pride as our WCW today, go vote her then. The clock is ticking.
The 22 year old Makerere University Business School student was crowned Miss Uganda 2018 last night at the pageant’s finals held at Sheraton Hotel Kampala in a race that had a total of 23 national beauty contenders.
Abenakyo who hails from Mayuga district is currently in her final year at MUBS pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Computing and will represent Uganda in Miss World beauty pageant bound to take place in December this year in Asia China.
On top of winning the crown, Abenakyo will be given a brand new car among other prizes like a fully paid trip to Netherlands with Trya Margach and Ahebwa Martha who were the first and second runners up respectively.
Socialite Zari Hassan was among the Top judges for this year’s Miss Uganda assortment.

Former Miss Uganda contestant, Prim Mima Asiimwe, who has over the past 6 years amassed love from Ugandans; for her role as lead host of the Evening Rush Show on local urban youth radio station, Galaxy FM, was born today.
The self-proclaimed supermodel, who has a signature English discourse on the predominantly Luganda station is a big name among the youthful girls, and all guys that love nice-looking celebrities.
Prim is a mother of one, whose bomb body still makes countrymen rack their brains on how she does it to maintain the perfect silhouette – she has such a knack for looking good in photos.
Sad news to suitors though, Miss. Asiimwe has a spouse: and that’s celebrated comedian Alex Muhangi of Comedy Store.
Ultimately, we at MTN Pulse say Happy Birthday, Prim.
