Posted on October 4, 2021
Fast rising local singer Ahlam Ismail commonly known as Lamu was last Thursday crowned Miss Earth Uganda 2021 and she is set to represent her country at Miss Earth World beauty pageant which will be held virtually in November.
Held at Nyaika Hotel located in Fort Portal City, Lamu was crowned by the Queen of Tooro Kingdom, Her Majesty Best Kemigisa who was the guest of honour at the ceremony which had other big guests in attendance.
Things were however different this year round because of Covid-19 0ubtreak. Organizers were forced to just simply nominate and crown the 2021 queen as opposed to the normal way of picking among the already vetted and filmed contestants
“Upon further deliberations as well as Covid-19 regulated restrictions regarding hosting events in Uganda, Miss Earth Uganda, one of the franchises under Uganda Pageant Girls, will nominate the 2021 candidate to represent Uganda at Miss Earth Beauty Pageant on September 30th. The selected candidate will not be picked among the already vetted and filmed contestants of Uganda Pageant Girls season 1 as they will officially debut in the first quarter of 2022.” Read a statement from Miss Earth Uganda official Facebook page.
“When I said ‘today is a good day to start afresh’ I meant it I feel reborn. What an honor to be crowned as Miss Earth Uganda by Her Royal Highness The Queen mother of Tooro Best Kemigisa” Excited Lamu said on her official Facebook page
Meanwhile, Lamu is a Ugandan Afro-urban and Pop music singer and writer signed under Talent Africa record label based in Kampala. According to her profile, She is an International Relations and Diplomatic studies student at Kampala based Victoria University.
