Because this is my hair... Trevor Noah interviews Miss Universe!

Two of South Africa’s biggest stars in the US collided on our television screens this week & we absolutely loved it.


New York, United States of America – Trevor Noah interviewed the newly crowned Miss Universe on The Daily Show this week setting social media alight.

In a clip released by The Daily Show, the two South Africans speak about Zozibini Tunzi winning the crown with her natural hair.

Tunzi’s win is South Africa’s third Miss Universe crown; she is the first black woman to win the Miss Universe title since Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe 2011, and has also been lauded for being the first to compete with her natural afro-textured hair.

“I don’t think anyone tells other people to put on a weave, so why should I? 

And at first, people were like, was this a strategy? And I was like what… to wake up and be myself? 

No, it’s not a strategy, you know I’ve had short hair for three years, and I wasn’t going to change because I was stepping into a beauty platform… because that would mean that I didn’t think my hair is beautiful.”

The two South Africans also speak about Tunzi’s cause which is Gender-Based Violence, and why it matters to her so much!
