"I think it is time that that stops today".

In an interview with "Good Morning America" afterward, Tunzi shared her hilarious reaction to learning about Oprah's message of support. "Nothing is important as taking up space in society and cementing their self".


A curious tweet from a Swedish account sought to compare Tunzi (Miss South Africa 2019) with her Swedish counterpart Lina Ljungberg, who was one of the more than 60 contestants vying for the crown.

Meanwhile, yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that in less than 24 hours since winning the 68th Miss Universe pageant, Miss SA, Zozibini Tunzi had bagged more than a million followers on social media. The 45-year-old shared the thrilling moment via her stories on social media in which the Miss Universe pageant's host, Steve Harvey, creates suspense and finally announces the victor. Tunzi wrote. "May every little girl who witnessed this moment forever believe in the power of her dreams and may they see their faces reflected in mine".


Among pageant fans and pundits, Catriona Gray has been credited with setting a new standard for aspiring Miss Universe queens, with her level of preparation and dedication, and more importantly, her eloquence. "I proudly state my name Zozibini Tunzi, Miss Universe 2019!" "Although I've traveled back to the Philippines during this year, now it's really a homecoming trip because my reign as Miss Universe has ended", she said.

Gray also touched on the Philippine license of Miss Universe, which, after 55 years with Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc., was announced to have a new home in a group headed by Miss Universe Philippines 2011 Shamcey Supsup.
