According to pageantry website Missosology, Miss South Africa 2020 Shudufhadzo Musida is a "hot pick" to take the Miss World title. 

Miss World, the oldest existing major international beauty pageant, which started in the UK in 1951, proudly celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2021 when Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica will crown her successor

The edition was originally scheduled for the end of 2020 but postponed due to Covid-19. The pageant is scheduled to take place in the second half of 2021.

Shudufhadzo will be following in the footsteps of three Miss South Africas: Rolene Strauss, Anneline Kriel and Penelope Coelen who won the Miss World title in 2014, 1974 and 1958 respectively.

"Leading the race at the moment is the stunning Shudufhadzo Musida of South Africa. The 24-year-old advocate for children and women empowerment as well as mental health zoomed to the top of the rankings the moment she was officially announced as the Rainbow Nation's representative to Miss World," said Missosology. 

"By sending the main winner to Miss World will surely earn additional brownie points for South Africa," Missosology stated further. 

In second place is Alejandra Conde of Venezuela and completing the top three prediction is Indonesia's Pricilia Carla Yules. 

Missosology is not the only platform to take note of the South African beauty. YouTube channel Kemudi, as well as Alvin Sebetero placed Shudufhadzo at the very top of their prediction leaderboard.

"There is no way that this woman is going to place lower than top three," Alvin said.
