Kingston, December 10 – The Minister of Culture, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has congratulated Kadijah Robinson, Jamaica's representative to the Miss World pageant, for her stellar showing as she finished in the top five of the competition held in Sanya, China.
Minister Grange said:
“It was an amazing feat securing a top 5 finish and gaining the Miss World Caribbean title, while being a wonderful exponent of our culture. Miss Robinson had the entire Asian continent doing Ding Dong popular dances to an authentic dancehall beat...simply amazing.
She has contributed to the brand of Jamaican excellence that has dominated the world. Kadijah is a true ambassador of our rich cultural heritage on the international stage.”
Vanessa Ponce de Leon from Mexico was declared the winner, becoming the first Mexican queen to win the coveted title.
Miss Robinson’s emphatic top five finish and the dance video have ignited widespread praise from Jamaicans across the Diaspora who have commended the daughter of Black River, St Elizabeth on her performance.
Robinson, a physiotherapist at the Black River hospital in St Elizabeth, was also crowned Miss World Caribbean.
