Last Saturday was one of those special days in Kisumu. After weeks of competitive stages amid pressure to be the best of the best in the city, the contestants who majorly were students in the respective colleges in the city, impressed the crowd who attended the Miss Kisumu City Gala Night at Acacia Premier Hotel.

The event which was looking at beauty and brains culminated into a final of intelligent beauty queens. All the contestants managed to answer the questions so perfectly, and I must say that the organizer of the pageant managed to push the limits beyond just beauty.

But at the end of the day, there was going to be only one winner. And that winner was Miss Sheila Akinyi Udida.ย Sheila Udida was crowned the most beautiful girl in Kisumu City.

Sheila is justย 19 years old and is in her 2nd year at Maseno University, pursing a Bachelors Degree in International Relations.

Miss Kisumu City 2016 was the premier event of what will now be an annual celebration of beauty and intelligence in the Great City of Kisumu. She also won a cash prize of KShs 100,000 plus a spa treatment and a night for two at Acacia Premier Hotel.

Miss Kisumu City Pageant strives toย nurture models byย training them on modeling industry ideals and to be ready as they venture into the international modeling space.

In this regard, Sheila has just started her journey of representing the City of Kisumu in regional, national and international events which will require a role of her stature.

Other winners were:

  • 1st Runners Up – Miss Sophie Odero
  • 2nd Runners Up – Miss Emma Awuor

Sheila loves dancing and modeling.
