Miss Universe Philippines Organization National Director and former Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2011 Shamcey Supsup gave Rabiya Mateo a sound advice a day before the Ms Universe Pageant Night.
According to Shamcey, Rabiya should not mind the things and stories that come out of social media as it might just distract her.
The former Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2011 said that Rabiya should just set her eyes on the pageant night and focus on the things that she needs to do.
“She’s already doing great so no need to feel the pressure anymore,” Shamcey said.
Shamcey said she is confident that Rabiya will hurdle the preliminaries and will be among the Top 21.
Even current Ms. Universe titleholder Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa has all praises for Rabiya.
“She’s very sweet, very bright and just like the other Filipino women that have come before her, very confident, has a strong message and I think she's going to do very well representing her country. The Philippines should be proud of her,” Zozibini said.
Miss Universe is an annual international beauty pageant run by the United States–based Miss Universe Organization. It is one of the most watched pageants in the world with an estimated audience of over 500 million viewers in over 190 territories. Along with Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Earth, Miss Universe is one of the Big Four international beauty pageants.
Rabiya has found an ally in Ogie Diaz who recently dropped a new vlog on his YouTube channel to discuss the controversies regarding the pageant, Miss Universe. The comedian slammed social media influencer and government supporter Jam Magno after she berated Miss Universe Philippines, Rabiya Mateo. Jam Magno had incorrectly used the Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines to bash the beauty queen. This is not the first time that Ogie has made negative comments about the influencer as they even feuded on social media in past.
Back in Rabiya’s hometown of Iloilo, the city mayor, Jerry Treñas, welcomed the idea of declaring Jam Magno a personan non grata. He said that if Ilonggos believe that she deserve to be handed with such a declaration, he will do so. It can be recalled that Magno bashed Rabiya because of her political opinions and her fashion sense.
