Trio set to capture the hearts of many
And as for young women, I want them to be comfortable in their own skins. We need to stop comparing ourselves because we are all different.
I also want to break the misconception of thinking that Miss SA and Miss Universe are all about looking a certain way or being a certain way. I want to use this platform to help people break free from stigmas.
Describe your fashion sense
Before this, I was always a simple girl. I never dressed up, only occasionally. I was a student and that was my life. But now, entering into this world, I got to find a style that suits me. My stylist decided to keep me just as I am. Often they glam people up, change their hair, add bling, etc. But with me, my stylist decided to keep me simple, elegant and modern.
What have the past four months of being Miss SA been like?
I can’t even describe it. The past four months have been good crazy; there have been a lot of ups and a lot of downs.
I had to do a lot of growing up in just four months, amid the fast-paced world that I now exist in. I have seen a lot and have done a lot.
Things like this denim range, who would have thought that I would ever have my own denim range. It has been a great journey thus far.
Win or lose…
I will be proud either way. That’s how I went through the Miss South Africa journey. I knew why I wanted to do the pageant.
I knew I would still achieve all my goals even if I didn’t win the competition, but this platform has been a blessing for me to achieve those at a larger scale, and I am grateful.
Going into Miss Universe, my focus is exactly like it was, not worrying about what other people are saying and telling me what to do.
I will do me, understanding why I am doing this. On October 28 talented trio, Encore, will release their new album called
at Silverstar (https://www. tsogosun.com/silverstar-casino).
Every now and again you stumble upon music that speaks directly to your soul.
It is not easy for musicians to perfect the art of capturing their audience almost immediately, but newcomers to the music scene, Encore have been able to do just that.
The trio – which consists of Keabetwe Kototsi, Kabelo Thomane and Peter Letsaolo – are re-inventing soulful African ballads with their perfectly-synced harmonies coupled with impeccable lyrics.
The result is a musical recipe which captures the hearts of many South Africans.
