Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi admits watching Catriona Gray's 'Lava Walk' 'a thousand times'

MANILA, Philippines — Pageant fans from all around the world watched the recent Facebook Live colloquium "Winning Walk" with reigning Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa and the CEO of Bragais Shoes, Jojo Bragais, the new official footwear of the 69th Miss Universe competition.

"My greatest walk happened with my shoe-making career when I was 20. My journey started with Yvette Santiago (Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014), then with Pia Wurtzbach (Miss Universe 2015), to Catriona Gray (Miss Universe 2018), and now with the Miss Universe Organization. It's a career dream for me, ever since," shared Jojo.

"A winning walk is one that a candidate understands, like in a Miss Universe stage. It's been fun knowing that my shoes will now be part of that walk."

For her part, Zozi remembered her winning walk when she was called as part of the Top 3.

"A winning walk is one that is done with conviction and pride, not only on the physical level, but what you carry in the inside... what you're bringing to the world! Cat's walk will always be memorable. I must have watched her 'Lava Walk' a thousand times for its wow factor," she shared, while opening a Jojo Bragais box containing silver stilettos.

Some citizens call Zuzi's gait as the "Wakanda Walk," inspired by the "Black Panther" movie. She said, she will be awaiting for more comments in the thread as to what fans call her kind of walk.
