She is currently doing a post-graduation Honours in International Relations at the University of Witwatersrand. She performed exceptionally well at the competition impressing everyone at the competition and finally winning the title and earning the opportunity to represent South Africa at Miss Universe 2020 stage. She was a part of our favourites for the crown as well.

First runner-up: Thato Thelma Mosehle

Second runner-up: Natasha Joubert

Musida is very ambitious and passionate about representing South Africa at international level along with being passionate about economic education and empowerment of women and children in the society and would love to use the platform to advocate about the same. She feels that the platform is huge and there are so many beautiful and intelligent divas out there who are competing for the title but this has not shaken or distracted her from her focus which is to perform her best at the competition and embrace her journey no matter what the result is. She had mentioned, “there is a purpose that is bigger than me, a platform that could not only change my life, but also fulfil the interest to serve others with my life.”

Musida is beautiful, confident, and focused towards her goals and dreams and is very proud of her culture and traditions. She reads, sings, and practices the keyboard and believes that she has now accepted herself as she is and she couldn’t be happier. She has used her voice and platform to advocate about self-love and wants to include a huge number of people in her journey too. Musida just like Zozibini embraces her culture, and traditional values to the fullest and hopes to showcase them exactly.
