Zozibini, thee beauty queen who won the hearts of the entire nation before capturing the hearts of the whole universe. Zozibini Tunzi‘s strides at home and abroad have not gone unnoticed and she continues being a beacon of light to a lot of people.
However, being in the spotlight has not been an easy journey for Zozi, as she got praises, but sometimes would find her at the receiving end. Like other celebs, Zozibini has been body-shamed, but she handled the situation with gratitude.
Although her journey may have ended, she still has a special place in all our hearts, so let’s look at some of the momentous events in the beauty queen’s past year.
Zozibini’s biggest scandal shook thousands of people
Being Miss South Africa means constantly living in the limelight and that every minute of your life is scrutinized, either past or present. While Zozibini Tunzi was well-versed in this fact, Bianca Schoombee, one of the hopefuls for Miss South Africa 2020, had to learn this first hand.
Some of her past Facebook posts were found to be racist and discriminatory, which later led her to withdraw from the competition and lose her contract with her modeling agency. After this event, Zozibini Tunzi looked back at some of the comments she had passed in 2012 and apologized, saying that she is a different person today than she was when publishing those comments.
Zozibini Tunzi VS Shudu
Living up to your predecessor is never an easy task, and this is especially true when the predecessor was someone like Zozibini Tunzi. Zozi changed the perceived face of beauty when she won the titles of both Miss SA and Miss Universe in 2019. When Shudufhadzo Musida took over the crown of Miss South Africa, she was constantly compared to the former beauty queen, Zozi.
