Ndavi Nokeri came all the way from Tzaneen in Limpopo to take home the prestigious Miss South Africa 2022 crown on Saturday.

The 23 year old went up against nine other finalists in SunBet Arena’s Time Square in Tshwane, and came out tops with pure wit and beauty.

With her long hair intact Nokeri showed up 100 percent on the runway – just as she had promised before the finale ceremony.

Nokeri is not just beautiful – she holds a BCom Investment Management degree from the University of Pretoria and works at an asset management firm.

“I am proof that even someone from a small village and humble beginnings can achieve their ambitions and show that their dreams are valid,” Nokeri had told Miss SA organisers following the announcement of the top ten finalists.

Nokeri takes the crown from Miss SA 2021 Lalela Mswane who is also the reigning Miss Supernatural 2022.

With the heavy load of her duties as Miss SA 2022, Nokeri will spend more time managing her own assets than those of her employer.

Ayanda Thabethe from Taylor’s Halt in KwaZulu-Natal was the first runner-up, while Lebogang Mahlangu from Soshanguve in Gauteng took the third place.
