South Africa has done it again from the Daily Show host Trevor Noah being nominated for the Grammys to Springbok captin Siya Kholisi leading the national rugby team to gold and bringing the trophy back home and now our very own reigning queen as Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi who was crowned as the fairest queen in the land taking the coverted crown and being named as MISS UNIVERSE 2019.
Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe Sunday night after excelling through rounds of swimsuit and evening gown struts, questions on social issues and one final chance to explain why she was the right choice.
“I grew up in a world where a woman who looks like me — with my kind of skin and my kind of hair — was never considered to be beautiful,” she said in her last response. “I think it is time that that stops today. I want children to look at me and see my face and I want them to see their faces reflected in mine.”
South African president Cyril Ramaphosa also tweeted
The massive competition was hosted at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
It has already made history with Miss Myanmar, Swe Zin Htet, who says she’s the first openly gay contestant.
The hashtag #MissUniverse was trending on Twitter and she even got a shout-out from Oprah Winfrey.
