Zozibini Tunzi Biography

Zozibini Tunzi is a South African model and beauty queen and one of the most famous beauty queens from the Rainbow Nation, has won the Miss Universe competition in 2019, the same year she was crowned Miss South Africa.

She’d entered into the Miss South Africa completion in 2019, wearing a weave, but lost. Two years later, she’d reemerge on the same platform wearing her natural hair. She clinched the crown.


Born in 1993, Zozibini Tunzi is currently 27 years. She’ll be 28 in September, and she’s so looking forward to that day. On her birthday last year, South Africa stood still for her. Social media was deluged with birthday wishes for her. Among those who had wished her the best was Family Tree CEO Cassper Nyovest.

This year’s celebration is expected to be just as lit. September is not exactly far away.

Net Worth

Zozibini Tunzi may no longer have the crown of Miss Universe, but she’s still loaded – as the saying goes. She’s one of those celebs who’d never be caught bragging about their net worth. At any rate, industry insiders put her net worth at $1 million – not bad for a beauty queen.


Zozibini Tunzi is one lady who cuts a unique image in the beauty world. Although many beauty queens would go for wigs, weaves and similar attachments, Zozibini Tunzi would rather wear a low cut.

It was the same low cut she took to the Miss Universe platform. Many had wanted her to wear a weave or wig, but she was adamant about competing with her low cut. She won, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.

By the way, she has nothing against other hairstyles, though. In fact, she had given the thumbs up to them all, but she’s content with her low cut.


If you have dreams of one day having Zozibini Tunzi as your girlfriend or wife, you might be in luck – perhaps not. Unfortunately, there’s no available information about her boyfriend, so you might want to shoot your shot and see what happens. Last we checked, she stated in a post to Instagram that she’s just in love with the universe and the crown (Miss Universe).


Zozibini Tunzi lives in a mansion fit for a queen, although she’s no longer holding the Miss Universe crown. Morningside, Sandton, one of the most expensive areas in South Africa, is where the former beauty queen calls home.

Her apartment in the area is reportedly worth R5 million.


When she won the Miss South Africa beauty competition in 2019, Zozibini Tunzi got a pricey Mercedes Benz convertible worth R1 million. However, she reportedly has another car besides the one she was gifted on winning the crown.


Zozibini Tunzi was born to an educator father and mother alongside three sisters, Yanga, Sibabalwe, and Ayaka. Zozibini’s mother is Philiswa Nadapu, the principal of Bangweni Primary School. On the other hand, her father works in the Department of Higher Education and Training in Pretoria.


Zozibini Tunzi has several interesting quotes that you wouldn’t mind saving up somewhere and looking up again. Among the quotes ascribed to her are:

“I grew up in a world where a woman with my kind of skin and my kind of hair was never considered to be beautiful. And, it’s time that that stops.”

“Leadership has been lacking in young women and girls for a long time – not because we don’t want to lead, but because of what society has labelled women to be.”

“Don’t allow people who arent’ in your shoes to have a say in your life.”
