Sharing with you now video of the Brand South Africa Empowerment Workshop of the Miss South Africa 2020 Top Ten Finalists.

Some of you might think that developments like this may tend to spoil the entertainment value of an event we have embraced since the 1960s. But with the world around us constantly changing, something’s gotta give without necessarily removing the parts we enjoy the most. We have looked at pageant candidates as entertainers for the longest time. Let us try to upgrade our vision for them – with or without a crown on top of their heads.
