South Africa, meet your #MissSA2019 @zozitunzi – the Queen of the Nation. Double-tap and comment below with your good wishes as she wears her crown and begins her reign to represent us across the globe.
Zozibini beat 15 other dazzling young women from across the country to scoop the prestigious crown. The new Queen who is beyond excited also took to her Instagram page to express how grateful she is.
Today is the beginning of the rest of my life. I’ve dreamt about it so many times but the reality of it all is much greater. So many great Queens have come before me and I hope I continue the streak of amazing women who have contributed so much to society. So here sits the crown, beautifully so on my kinky coarse hair. I hope I make South Africa proud. Thank you so much for all the love and support. Yours sincerely,
Miss South Africa 2019
