It will be the primary time that the South African actress and businesswoman will host Miss SA, although she is not any novice to the stage having hosted multiple international events outside of the African continent.

Mbatha, in her role as UN Eminent High-Level Champion on Gender Equality, recently delivered a lauded speech at the 75th session of the UN General Assembly in NY. The theme of the UN meeting was “Accelerating the realization of gender equality and therefore the empowerment of all women and girls”. thanks to her remarkable work with UNHCR Africa, Mbatha was appointed as a UNHCR Global Goodwill Ambassador in January 2019. She also spoke at the UN headquarters, during a gathering for the Africa Dialogue series, in May 2019. In October 2018 she addressed the UN executive team in Geneva, Switzerland, on the importance of teaching young girls.


A household name not just in South Africa, but on the continent as an entire, Mbatha – who features a BCom accounting degree from the University of Cape Town – moved to l. a. last year to expand her international career. She is about to star within the much-anticipated sequel Coming to 2 America, alongside Hollywood heavyweights Eddie Murphy, Leslie Jones, and Wesley Snipes. The movie is scheduled to hit theatres on December 18, 2020.

Mbatha reveals that she has always been an enormous fan of the Miss South Africa pageant then it’s a dream come faithful host this year’s show: “What the pageant has wiped out being a mirrored image of beauty, depth, and power, not just for South African women but women everywhere the planet, are some things I actually admire.”

Her advice to the present year’s Top 10: “Set your intentions, let your light shine and know that your superpower is being your truest self!”

Stephanie Weil, CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation said, “It may be a coup for Miss South Africa to possess Nomzamo host the pageant. We are hooked into celebrating young women and believe that Nomzamo, with all she has achieved, maybe a perfect fit host the pageant and an idea for all.”

Miss South Africa 2020 will bring home a package of prizes and sponsorships worth in more than R3 million.
