While Akothee’s daughter Rue Baby might have got all the headlines at the recently held, Miss Universe Kenya, Stacy Michuki should also get some publicity.
Why? The 18-year-old is the new Miss Universe Kenya for 2019! She was crowned on 20 October at Panari Hotel, Nairobi, beating 13 other contestants, including First Runner-Up, Aggry Dion Okello (aka Rue Baby).
That is not all, she also comes from a family of great note. Stacy is the granddaughter of the late Kenyan politician and businessman John Michuki.
Stacy will represent Kenya at the Miss Universe 2019 and face off against 80 other ladies at the pageant scheduled to take place on 19 December in Seoul, South Korea. After her win, Stacy said; ‘Being a model has been the best thing that has happened to me. It allows me to be someone I am not every day. I’m so happy! I want to thank everyone who supports my journey and above all, I want to thank God because this battle was also fought on my knees!’
