The Miss Rupununi 2022 beauty and talent contest was pulled off during the two-night event of the Rupununi Expo 2022 at the Tabatinga Sports Complex in Lethem, Region 9. During the event, 8 Rupununi beauties contested for the crown of Miss Rupununi 2022.
Contestant number 5, Miss Natoya Foo, who won the title of second runner up, delivered a stunning, breathtaking performance of a folksong and dance, entitled, “They Say Rupununi is Bush.”
The lyrics of the song, which is mostly in local Creolese dialect, addresses some of the misconceptions people elsewhere may have about the Rupununi Savannahs while highlighting the pride, beauty, and culture of the Rupununi people.
Have fun and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
