A household name not just in South Africa, but on the continent as a whole, Nomzamo, who has a BCom accounting degree from the University of Cape Town, moved to Los Angeles last year to expand her international career. She is set to star in the sequel Coming 2 America, alongside Hollywood heavyweights Eddie Murphy, Leslie Jones and Wesley Snipes. The movie is scheduled to be hit theatres on 18 December 2020.
Nomzamo reveals that she has always been a huge fan of the Miss South Africa pageant and so it is a dream come true to host this year's show: "What the pageant has done in being a reflection of beauty, depth and power, not only for South African women but women all over the world, is something I truly admire."
Her advice to this year's top 10: "Set your intentions, let your light shine and know that your superpower is being your truest self!"
Says Stephanie Weil, CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation: "It is a coup for Miss South Africa to have Nomzamo host the pageant. We are passionate about celebrating young women and believe that Nomzamo, with all she has achieved, is a perfect fit to host the pageant and an inspiration for all."
Miss South Africa 2020 will take home a package of prizes and sponsorships worth in excess of R3 million.
