Zozibini Tunzi, Miss South Africa, aged 26, was crowned miss universe 2019, on Sunday in Tyler Perry studios Atlanta.

She finished ahead of the Puerto Rican and Mexican finalist, it being South Africa’s third win after their recent 2017 victory.

The pageant was hosted by Steve Harvey, a renowned American TV personality among co-hosts, Olivia Culpo and Vanessa Lachey who acted as backstage correspondents.

Zozibini replaces Gatriona Gray who took the crown in 2018. Apparently for the first time in history Miss America, Miss teen USA and Miss Universe are all black. Goes without say that black is beauty.

The Elegant glamorous miss universe during her speech talked about the girl child being the most powerful and should take up space in the society.

Behind the beauty lies a passionate activist engaged in fight against gender based violence, who has since devoted her social media campaign to changing the narrative around gender stereotypes, she advocates for natural beauty and encourages ladies to accept themselves the way they are.

“I grew up in a world where women who look like me,with my kind of skin and my kind of hair were never considered beautiful, and I think that it stops today.” She said .
