Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi has been crowned Miss Universe 2019.
The 26-year-old Eastern Cape beauty beat 89 other contestants to clinch the coveted title.
Tunzi wowed the judges and fans throughout the competition managing to crowned the fairest of them all.
She takes over the reins from Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
Africa Melane on the Eusebius McKaiser Show and callers reacted to the win.
I must confess, I didn't think that Zozibini would be crowned Miss Universe, not because I don't think she is the most beautiful woman in the world, which she really is, she is beauty personified. I just didn't think that the pageant would have the courage to crown someone who doesn't fit the 'ordinary' ecstatic of what beauty queens should be.— Africa Melane, Presenter
Bongani a caller says he is very proud of what Tunzi has accomplished.
There is a little girl in a rural area somewhere and is looking at Zozibini and is inspired by her. I am proud that she has set the tone for anyone to believe that they can be like her.— Bongani, Caller
Joe calls in and says the win raises a question as to whether men are pressurising women to look foreign?
Monica, on the other hand, says she is excited and over the moon as Tunzi has made South Africa proud.
As South African women, we are over the moon, she is a natural beauty and I am so proud of her.— Monica, Caller
Pinky, a listener, says Tunzi's win is a statement.
Her victory is a statement for the racist global stage, the black woman is the most despised species in the whole world.— Pinky, Caller
Tshepo says he is proud Tunzi's accomplishment and feels men shouldn't have say in how women's hair should look.
In the 21st century, in constitutional South Africa, I as a man have no right to tell women what they should or shouldn't do with their hair.— Tshepo, Caller
