FOUR young Pietermaritzburg models will be leaving the city for Pretoria on October 25 to prepare for the biggest pageant they have entered thus far. The models, under Hoyt Model Management, will be representing the City of Choice in the Little Miss South Africa pageant to be held on October 28 in Pretoria. Bandile Kabamba (12) from Northdale, Nolwazi Bhebhe (11) from Pelham, Anelisa Banzi (11) from Pelham and Nkazimulo Magwaza (5) from Parkside are eager to strut their stuff on the catwalk.These young models said the news of being selected came as a shock as they did not expect it. “I am very happy, but I am also nervous. “I know it is not going to be easy because this is a big pageant, but I will give it my best. “I am ready for it and I am looking forward to it,” said Nolwazi. Anelisa said : “I am so nervous and yet excited. “This is something big for me because I have never participated in a big pageant before, not even in provincial pageants.”Bandile, who was recently crowned Miss Pinetown Teen 2017 in Durban, said she is very excited and looks forward to the challenge. Besides modelling at the pageant they will attend workshops that will teach them how to walk, public speaking, photography and undertake charity work. Clive Hadebe, the managing director at Hoyt Model Management, said models had to send their photos in for this pageant and they [Hoyt] had all their models entered. The entrants will be mentored by Mrs Tourism Africa, Ntombifuthi Gumede before the pageant.
