MISS SIMPLY BLUE 2014 REIGNS SUPREME

Image
"Nomuzi" Muzi Zuma the successor!



I could call her the "girl" that break the rules, maybe she makes them? Very hard to decide.
I have met beautiful drag beauty queens but none like her, she is different. She's the drag version of Candice Swanepoel, tall, sexy, perfect make up & hair & she got the brains! Big ups!

From the first day she entered Miss Simply Blue after she was highly disappointed not winning Miss Black Pride it was pretty obvious she will be crowned the next Miss Simply Blue. Despite the fact that her biggest competition who placed as her first princess Cheaza Jaar looks like a superstar, a girl you would take to Miss Universe & give all the girls run for their money if there were no questions, Muzi is still a step ahead.

On the day Muzi Zuma, whom I prefare calling Nomuzi was sizzling on the day of the pageant! Looked like a queen that she is, perfect everything and answered her question more like she has been rehearsing it & was the …

FEATHERS RUFFLED OVER THE WEAKEST LINK & STRONGEST LINK AT MISS & MR GAY DAVEYTON 2014

LATE POST: Miss & Mr. Gay Daveyton 2014

The 6th of October 2014 saw a number of hopefuls from Daveyton township in Benoni competing for the tittle of Miss & Mr. Gay Daveyton at Two Tone Lounge that is organized by Lesiba Mothibe every year.

Some of the contestants brought the house down while some were weakest links on the game.

The standard of the pageant was on another level, nothing like an expected township pageant. As much as there were few moments where we were like "Joh" but it was no big deal. Actually should the MC, Labelz DeGlamour stuck on doing her job no matter what the problem was, the pageant would have been flawless. Not that most contestants would claim "they woke up like that - flawless"

The judges table was filled with anger and laughter.
As usual, like in any other pageants, contestants just cannot answer the judges questions. It was a sad case. Not so surprising for the contestants not to be able to answer as one of the judges said &qu…
