  • Miss South Africa 2020 will be crowned at The Table Bay hotel in an entertainment-packed event on Saturday, 24 October, from 17:00.
  • The event will be broadcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic and will be streamed live for an international audience.
  • The 2020 Miss South Africa finale will feature some of this country's most exciting musical talents.

The 2020 Miss South Africa finale will feature some of this country's most exciting musical talents, several of whom will be performing their new songs for the very first time.

Two of this year's acts are no strangers to Miss South Africa - Mi Casa performed at the Sun City finale in 2014 when Rolene Strauss took the crown, and Sho Madjozi wowed the crowds at Time Square last year when Zozibini Tunzi triumphed. 

Joining them for the 2020 pageant are Ami Faku, Jimmy Nevis and Sun El-Musician.

Miss South Africa 2020 will be crowned at The Table Bay hotel on Saturday, 24 October, from 17:00.

Ten years, countless awards and five albums later, Mi Casa has signed an international record deal with Afroforce1 Records and Universal Music Group. The trio - which comprises Dr Duda (piano), J'Something (vocalist and guitarist) and trumpeter Mo-T - will be performing their latest release.

J'Something recalls their Miss South Africa performance six years ago: "I will never forget that day, I felt more nervous than the actual contestants. It was a moment I never forgot and to be back is a blessing, celebrating beauty and getting to do what we love with a brand-new song that I think will be so fitting. We have a new single; it's called Mamela, and it's my favourite song I have ever made with Mi Casa. So to get to perform it for everybody on such a platform is another moment for me and hopefully all of you to look forward to."

2020 has been a bumper year for both KZN's Sun-El Musician and the Eastern Cape's Ami Faku. Sun-El was the biggest winner at this year's South Africa Music Awards ,walking away with three Samas in the categories: Best Collaboration for his runaway hit Akanamali, the SAMPRA Highest Airplay Song of the Year and Samro Highest Airplay Composer's awards, while Faku was announced as the winner of the coveted Female Artist of the Year for her debut album Imali

Sun-El Musician and Ami Faku will be performing Into Ingawe at the pageant. Both say they are looking forward to the performance and seeing what the top 10 bring to the table on the night: "They are an incredible group of young women who represent our country and its diversity."

Regarded as one of the best performers in Africa, Sho Madjozi incorporates the Tsonga culture through her music and public image. Last year the multi-award-winning rapper was featured on the global music platform COLORS, where she performed her song John Cena.

Sho was praised for the song by many notable people, including rapper Missy Elliott and also appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to talk about the song. She was nominated for Best International Act at this year's BET Awards and has been signed by Epic Records. 

The past year has been one of self-discovery for Cape Town musician Jimmy Nevis who has unearthed new energy in his sound, message and brand: "I am performing a mash up of my lockdown single Hey Jimmy as well as the debut performance of my new single Magenta  - which releases the week after the pageant - so I'm very excited for everyone to hear the song. My band and I are ready to bring you into summer!" 

Miss South Africa 2020 will be screened live on Saturday, 24 October, from 17:00 on M-Net and Mzansi Magic as well as the live online stream with exclusive behind-the-scenes content.
