Shudufhadzo Musida the current Miss South Africa has missed out on becoming the next Miss Universe after opting to compete for the Miss World title that will be held next year.
South Africa’s official Miss SA page has taken to its Twitter page to announce the ladies who will be competing in the upcoming international pageant, the Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Supranational 2021 competitions.
According to the Tweet, Shudufhadzo Musida will be competing for Miss World, Natasha Joubert who was the second runner-up for this year’s Miss SA pageant will be competing for the Miss Universe title and Thato Mosehle will be competing for Miss Supranational.
However, the 23-year-old Pretoria resident who will be representing South Africa at next year’s Miss Universe said she was honored to be have been chosen to represent the country
“Never in a million years did I think a year back, as I watched our reigning Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi being crowned, that I would be chosen as the woman to go and defend the title and show the world how strong, powerful, diverse and unique South African women are.
It’s been a lifelong dream that I get to live out and will forever be grateful to the Miss South Africa Organisation for granting me this once in a lifetime opportunity. I hope to make our country proud,” said Natasha
Moreover, Natasha studied in Boston, USA, and earned herself a B.Com in Marketing Management this year. She is also the founder of her own fashion company, Natalia Jeffreys.
However, while many South Africans congratulated the trio, a few South Africans questioned the choice to have Natasha running for Miss Universe and not Shudufhadzo Musida, who would have been following in Zozibini Tunzi’s footsteps if she was chosen.
