The IAMSL pageant agency is sending Paris-based beauty queen Mabinty Mansaray to represent Sierra Leone in the 15th edition of Miss Supranational at Nowy Sącz, Poland, on July 6th, 2024.

Sierra Leone at Miss Supranational

Over the years Sierra Leone has sent three participants to both the Mister and Miss Supranational contest. The first was Esther Kamara (2019), then Ramatu Wurie (2021) and for Mister Supranational we had Abu Bakarr Tarawalie (2021) he won Mister Supranational Africa. This year the number of participants will increase to five as both Mabinty Mansaray and Uthman Bangura will be representing the country in the 2024 Mister and Miss Supranational.

Ramatu Wurie – Miss Supranational 2021

Abubakarr Tarawalie – Mister Supranational 2021

Uthman Bangura – Mister Supranational 2024

Mabinty Mansaray – Miss Supranational 2024

“Uthman Bangura is amazing I think he’s going to place in top five or win the whole thing,”

“Super is one of my most expensive franchises but we are only able to send participants bi-annually because the cost is high and visa processing is extremely difficult,” Swadu Natasha Beckley

Miss Supranational stands as a pinnacle of beauty and grace, showcasing the diverse talents and cultures of women from around the world. Established in 2009, the pageant has seen a legacy of remarkable winners who have left an indelible mark on the world stage.
