She saw it coming: Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi’s predicted her win years back
The recently crowned Miss Universe and South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi predicted her 8 years ago, though little known then, in 2012, the beauty queen Zozi was not deterred from from dreaming big.
A Facebook post shared by Zozibini on 5 May 2012 shows that she had her eye on an international pageant title for quite some time.
“One day is one day,” the post reads. Attached to that is a picture of a former Miss World winner being crowned.
Even though Zozi did not take the Miss World title, what she has just managed to bag is a big feat, ‘Miss Universe’ which is just as big as the Miss World crown.
The 8 year old post has now resurfaced on social media, and fans are taking it as an example that anything can be achieved if one remain focused and work hard enough towards a set goal.
Eight years later, Zozibini’s life has taken a complete twist for the better as she prepares for her reign and everything that comes along with it. Meanwhile, Zozi’s win has complimented other South African beauty queens who landed the same gong before her.
Margaret Gardiner was the first South African to take the Miss Universe crown in 1978 when she was just 18 years old.
Demi-Leigh was crowned Miss Universe in 2017, but she isn’t the first Miss South Africa to represent the country. Previously a number of Miss South Africa winners went on to take on the title of Miss Universe and Miss World respectively. Some of these include Rolene Strauss was crowned Miss South Africa before taking the title of Miss World in 2014. Anneline Kriel assumed the Miss World crown after Helen Morgan resigned just four days after winning the title. Penelope Anne Coelen was the first-ever Miss South Africa to go on to win the title of Miss World.
