Zozi Tunzi chats to Thando about what's next?
16 days ago
Zozi Tunzi made history when she was crowned Miss Universe in 2019. She became the third woman from South Africa to take the crown and the first black woman to be crowned Miss Universe since 2011.
Tunzi's reign as Miss Universe has made her become the longest-reigning titleholder of the prestigious pageant with over 467 days due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
What people miss as Miss Universe is that the biggest part is the impact. What do you do with your platform? And I soon realised that and as much as I wasn't able to travel, I still had my voice. I could still do the things that I wanted to do.Zozi Tunzi
Tunzi says that she did manage to get a couple of months of travel time in during the start of her reign but once the pandemic hit, she was stationed mainly at her New York apartment.
But most of her Miss Universe duties she could only really perform virtually.
First of all my win. I think just my existence in this space is something I'll always be proud of. Like you said, it was different.Zozi Tunzi

There is never a dull moment on the #947DriveWithThando show as Thando and Alex get Zozi to taste different meats while blindfolded.
She then has to describe what she is tasting to two contestants over the phone to see who gets it right from her clues.
