Zozibini Tunzi’s Miss Universe win is exactly what the country needed. We’ve already been on such a roll but more than just for South Africa, this win is for the entire African continent and for black girls across the globe.

When the announcement was made on Sunday evening, a lot of people were excited.From South Africans in the audience to Zozi’s parents who beamed with pride in their traditional Xhosa attire: umbhaco. But one person who caught the eye of many was Miss Nigeria, Olutosin Itohan Araromi. Her reaction to Zozi’s crowning is probably one of the sweetest and hair-raising moments. 

Olutosin made sure to move everyone who was in her way on stage to get to her bestie and roommate, Zozi. When she finally got next to her, Zozi turned to her and the two beauty queens exchanged words of affirmation. At some point, Olutosin was giving the beautiful Zozi a big thumbs and huge smiles – now that’s support!
