TWO Pietermaritzburg models made the City of Choice proud when they won at the Miss and Mr KZN Heroines and Heroes 2017 in Durban on Saturday.

Bandile Kabamba from Northdale was crowned Miss KZN Heroines 2017 and Sphamandla Magobhiyane from Cleland was crowned first prince.

Bandile’s mother Nokuthula told Maritzburg Fever
she is proud of her daughter and hopes others learn from her.

“Since she started participating in pageants she has grown in terms of modelling. As a parent I pray she does not give up on her love of modelling, and continues to work hard, and we will support her.

“We are lucky there are people who support and mentor her.”

Bandile said it is important for every child to do what they love, even though they may be young and at school.

“You do not know what the future holds. If your child has talent or a love for something support and guide her so she doesn’t lose concentration on her school work.”

Magobhiyane said the competition was tough, but he is happy to have come second.

“This is big for me because I always only made it to the top five.I am ready for the next pageant and want to do better,” he said.

Bandile was crowned Miss Pinetown Teen two months ago and participated in Miss Little South Africa 2017 last month.
