Thobile Steyn was crowned the 2020 Miss Soweto in an electrifying event that was held at the Soweto Theatre this weekend.

This Diepkloof native will drive around in a brand new Toyota Starlet for the year of her reign and also get a year's worth of beauty pampering by Candi & Co and evening gowns by Eli Ball. 

First princess Anathi Conjwa and second princess Kutloano Moloi each walked away with R25 000 and 10 000 cash prizes, respectively.

Other winners of the evening were: Thando Tshabalala who won Miss Social Butterfly and Tshireletso Olifant who won Miss Photogenic.

The 2020 Miss Soweto was judged by broadcaster, businesswoman and 2002 Miss South Africa runner-up, Bridget Masinga, and former fashion editor and blogger, Grace Mantjiu, and renowned singer/songwriter Judith Sephuma.  

The event will also broadcast on Soweto TV (Channel 251) on 5 December at 18:00. The pageant enjoys a long-standing partnership with Soweto TV. And in the true South African spirit of sharing, the pageant will also broadcast on Mzansi Wethu, DStv Channel 163 on 12 December at 18:00 and repeat on 13 December at 13:30, bringing the pageant experience to the homes of South Africans.
