Media personality, Bonang Matheba, famed Queen B, will be hosting the Miss South Africa pageant finale on Sunday, 13 August 2023.

The Miss South Africa finale is scheduled to take place on Sunday at the Sun Arena at Times Square Casino in Pretoria. The culmination of the pageant will also be broadcast live on SABC3 starting at 6:30pm.

Queen B has a longstanding association with Miss South Africa. This year, her luxury beverage brand, House of BNG, is an official sponsor for the 2023 pageant, and she also serves as a resident judge on Miss SA’s reality TV series, Crown Chasers.

Matheba says she is delighted to be hosting the show once again:

“The Miss South Africa pageant is one of the biggest television productions in the country, so I am very excited to be hosting the show for a third time this year. It is an institution in this country. I remember gathering around the TV when I was growing up and watching flawless African women like Basetsana Kumalo and Peggy Sue Khumalo being crowned at Miss South Africa.

From a young girl cheering on her favourites in front of a TV to becoming a judge, the pageant host and now even one of the official sponsors of this event is an absolute honour. I love that I can showcase my talent even more this year and be an intricate part of the show in it’s entirety.”

The fact that is airing on the SABC this year means that it is accessible to all South Africans, and that’s very special to me. I started my career on SABC years ago, so this is really iconic to be hosting the one of the biggest tv productions in the country, on the nation’s biggest broadcaster, giving everyone access to watch and experience it”.

For those keen to attend the finale, tickets are available for purchase on starting from R300.00 per ticket.
