Sylvia Wilson Namutebi Allibhai, who won the title of Miss Uganda in 2011, has been selected to compete for the title of Mrs. World Uganda at the Mrs. World Pageant, which will take place in Sri Lanka in March of next year.
Sylvia is not a newcomer to the world of pageantry because she has previously competed on a variety of international pageant platforms, such as Miss World and Miss Global International, where she represented Uganda.
Since the pageant’s beginning in 1985, successful married women from a wide variety of countries have competed for the title of Mrs. World. The pageant’s name is a play on the phrase “Mrs. World.”
Mrs. World was the first beauty contest to be held exclusively for married women and was established in 1984. It honors successful married women who have made a significant contribution to the communities in which they live. It has been determined that Namutebi is the most qualified candidate to represent Uganda.
She will be joined in this endeavor by her two immediate predecessors, Mrs. World Uganda 2011 Crystal Newman and Mrs. World Uganda 2009 Halima Namakula, with the hope of bringing the coveted crown back to Uganda.
Crystal Newman, who won the title of Mrs. World Uganda in 2011, and Halima Namakula, who won the title of Mrs. World Uganda in 2009, will be Sylvia’s predecessors in the competition to bring the coveted crown back to Uganda. Sylvia emerged as the leading candidate to represent Uganda.
Aly Allibhai, the Chief Executive Officer of Talent Africa Group, is Sylvia’s husband. She was key in the campaign that saw Quinn Abenakyo crowned as Miss World Africa in 2018-2019 and was the driving force behind the rebirth of the Miss Uganda Pageant.
She has been the driving force behind the revival of the Miss Uganda Pageant. She has a degree in Human Resource Management and has a strong interest in philanthropy, which she demonstrates via her work with the Talent Africa Foundation.
