MR South Africa 2017 contestant Muneer Holloway has received his first challenge in the competition – raising at least R10 000 for CANSA.

The 20-year-old was born and bred in Gelvan Park and has dreamed about competing for the Mr South Africa title since he was a young boy.

“Competing in the Mr South Africa competition has always been one of my dreams. I would like to make a difference and be a role model and an ambassador for my country,” Holloway said.

His biggest inspirations are his mother and sister.

“They are always there when I need help or advice. As a family we have been through quite a lot, but we always stick together. I’d like to thank my family for always supporting me. I am excited about this journey.”

Holloway, a former model of Sophisticate Models, was discovered when he entered and won his first competition, Mr Teen Eastern Cape 2015. He has since also claimed Rolemodels’ pageant titles of Mr Port Elizabeth and Mr Eastern Cape.

As part of the Mr South Africa 2017 competition the contestants are required to raise a minimum of R10 000 for CANSA by May 31.

In addition to donations and sponsorships, Holloway plans to raise the funds through raffles and by hosting a high tea event.

Mr South Africa 2017 will be announced in November.

The community can vote for Holloway as many times as they would like during the course of the competition. Simply SMS MRSA009 to 47439.
