Grange in a release from her ministry this afternoon said "It was an amazing feat securing a top five finish and gaining the Miss World Caribbean title, while being a wonderful exponent of our culture".

She noted that Robinson had the entire Asian continent doing Ding Dong popular dances to an authentic dancehall beat, which she said was "simply amazing".

"Robinson's emphatic top five finish and the dance video have ignited widespread praise from Jamaicans across the Diaspora who have commended the daughter of Black River, St Elizabeth on her performance."

Grange added that Robinson has contributed to the brand of Jamaican excellence that has dominated the world. "Kadijah is a true ambassador of our rich cultural heritage on the international stage," the minister added.

Vanessa Ponce de Leon from Mexico was declared the winner, becoming the first Mexican queen to win the coveted title.
