Bongani Bingwa chats to broadcaster Doreen Morris on the significance of Tunzi's crowning glory.

The enormity of Zozibini's win cannot be underestimated, representation matters. The transformation of an international brand like Miss Universe is so important. The win not only says that your dreams are not only valid, they are possible.

Doreen Morris, Broadcaster

The win shows that beauty queens are not just one dimensional, they are strong, powerful and multitalented, Morris adds.
