Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica crowned Miss World 2019

As the competition season continues, it looks like we have another incredible black queen in our hands.

Saturday, Miss Jamaica, Toni-Ann Singh was crowned Miss World 2019. The competition took place at the ExCeL convention center in London and she competed in the Top 12 against women from various places such as France, India , Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia and many others.

The 23-year-old is said to be the first Jamaican to hold the Miss World title since Lisa Hanna, who was crowned in 1993.

According to CNN, the Miss World contest is one of the four main beauty contests in the world, and the oldest, since it has existed for almost 70 years. Toni-Ann Singh is now the 69th woman to be crowned Miss World.

Applicants from around 111 countries spent last month in London as they competed in different categories such as “Sports” and “Beauty With A Purpose” to secure their spot during the televised portion of the competition.

As we reported earlier, this is the year when our beautiful black queens were recognized. Last weekend, Miss South Africa was crowned Miss Universe, joining Miss America, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA, who are also black women. Now the title of Miss World is also held by a black woman.

Congratulations again to Toni-Ann Singh for being crowned Miss World 2019!
