Miss Soweto 2023: Paige Harvey reigns supreme and takes over the crown

The 44th Miss Soweto finale took place at the Soweto Theatre in Jabulani this past weekend, and Paige Harvey reigned supreme in the beauty pageant as she was crowned Miss Soweto 2023 on the eve of her 20th birthday.

Hosting the beauty event was none other the media personality and DJ Lerato Kganyago, aka the Sowetan Queen. Coming in as the first and second runner-up were Lethaukuthula Ayanda Maseko and Nhlakanipho Amandla Mkongi, respectively.

Tsakane Sono who is the Miss Soweto 2022, expressed how grateful she is to have carried the title before she went on to hand over the crown. She was quoted saying: “What a previous and honour it has been to serve you, Soweto. Being Miss Soweto has changed my life in many ways that I never could’ve expected.”

Sono revealed that not only did the opportunity help her to become more confident in herself, either as a model or speaker, but it also opened opportunities for her to collaborate with so many organisations that may be forgotten or unseen. Taking over from Sono was Eldorado Park’s Harvey.

Talking to the local publication Sowetan Live, Harvey said she wants to use her reign to raise awareness about drug and alcohol abuse, which she considers a pandemic in her community. She said: “For someone growing up in hardships and amidst drug abuse, winning means breaking free from those challenges.”

She added that she believes that the title could be used to highlight individuals who excel in the awareness of drug and alcohol abuse, youth development, mental health advocacy and community development,” Harvey said.

Congatulations are in order for Harvey!
