“This says Miss Universe,” Steve can be heard saying as he opens up his blazer to show Zozibini where to sign.

“You’re going to be the first one . . . put your name right there. Imma turn this jacket into something one day [sic].”

“But who are you?” someone asks in the background reminding Zozibini to add her new title.

“It’s her first time . . . you’ve been practising that all your life . . . your first autograph,” added another.
