Durban – We couldn’t be more proud to see two of South Africa’s most talented individuals on one stage. The recently crowned Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi got the chance to sit with Trevor Noah when she was interviewed on Tuesday.
Following a post on The Daily Show’s Instagram page (IGTV), we managed to get the full gist of Zozi and Trevor’s interview.
During the interview, Zozibini spoke up about the negative comments she received from some members of the public when she won the Miss South Africa contest in August.
“I got comments like, ‘she’s a downgrade from the others [previous Miss SA winners] that we’ve had’,” she explained.
Zozibini also mentions the attacks she had to endure because of the color of her skin. “I remember putting out a post speaking about colourism, speaking about racism, speaking about how people need to see things in order to start believing in them” she said.
Trevor added, “It was a proud moment for me as a South African when you took the Miss Universe crown, but it was also a special moment for people around the world to see a dark skinned woman with natural hair win the title. “
Zozibini also touched on topics like gender-based violence. “My thing about gender-based violence is to bring in the men. Because people would ask women, ‘What do you think we should do to fight this?’. And I’m like, ‘Why are you asking me?”. I’m not the perpetrator in most of the instances so why don’t we call on the people that are?” she stated.
