Ndaedzo Matodzi and Phindulo Tonny Khedzi were crowned the queen and king of the Tshikhafoma beauty pageant.
The king and queen of Tshikhafoma were recently crowned during a beauty pageant at George Muri Lodge in Tshikombani.
The winners were: Phindulo Tony Khedzi (king), Mulisa Mukhavhuli (1st prince), and Thatoo Lebonye (2nd prince), Ndaedzo Matodzi (queen), Ambani Budeli (1st princess), Thovhedzo Netshimbolimbo (2nd princess), Rofhiwa Matamela (Miss Popularity), Zinzi Rabada (Miss Enterprise), Fulufhedzani Tshisevhe (Miss Personality), and Amphulusaho Mushadu (best philanthropist).
In the junior category, Tondani Murangi was crowned the queen and Lutendo Ndou the junior princess.
Speaking to Limpopo Mirror, the queen, Ndaedzo Matodzi, said that she felt happy and blessed “because this was my first time winning such a big title after trying so many times without success”.
The 19-year-old said she was very passionate about modelling and she wanted to use her title to help those who were less fortunate and to boost the confidence of young girls who did not believe in themselves.
The founder of the pageant, Pfano Witty Mbodi, said that their purpose “is to unleash hidden talents in our youth and to teach humanity, as we have a charity programme which we do yearly. We also aim to teach our youth on how to become entrepreneurs as jobs are scarce”.
