SHUDUFHADZO Musida’s made it to the Miss World Top 40.

Miss World SA announced the news on social media, thanking her fans.

She’s one of 15 fast-tracked beauty queens, because she won the Beauty with a Purpose pageant. Other fast-tracked beauty queens won segments such as Head-to-Head, the Miss World Sports Challenge, Miss World Talent, Miss World Top Model and Miss World Multimedia.

On Instagram, Shudu said winning her segment was an honour.


“I’m so humbled to announce I have made it to the @missworld Top 40. Going into this my biggest driver was Beauty with a Purpose and to have my project chosen as one of the winners is such an honour. But to have met the human embodiments of beauty with a purpose in the other contestants, just made the journey that much more fulfilling,” she said.

She thanked Mzansi and the other contestants.

“So to my fellow Miss World sisters, thank you for sharing your hearts with me and the world. To my beautiful South Africa, Ndo livhuwa, it takes a village, and it is our stories and your support that have led me to this point. To my Miss World family, thank you. I am so excited to be returning to Puerto Rico in March.”

The Miss World finale would have taken place last month, but was postponed due to staff testing positive for Covid-19. The new date is 16 March.
