WHO is the greatest Miss Zimbabwe of all-time?

It’s a tough one given the quality of the beauties who have captured the crown, the likes of Angeline Musasiwa, Brita Masalethuni and Malaika Mushandu, to name but a few.

Musasiwa, for instance, went on to represent the country at the Miss World and finished in the top four.

Angie, who was then a University of Zimbabwe student, finished fourth in a contest when by Indian Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Bachaan.

Brita was crowned Miss Zimbabwe in 1999 and went on to win Miss Malaika in 2001.

A leading online entertainment platform, earground, yesterday compiled the faces of the Miss Zimbabwe winners from 1980 and asked fans to choose who was their all-time favourite.

The feedback showed that the fans still have rich memories of the time when these beauty queens ruled the roost.

Below are some comments:

It’s one of the events that the nation really looked forward to yearly. I hope and pray that it comes back again. We need that as a nation, our fashion and beauty industry is dead. TJ Simende.

Angie Musasiwa, Brita, Linda van Beek & Phoebe Monjane for me. That’s why I enjoyed reading the Parade magazine, they always published these faces. – Tafadzwa Jengwa.

All-time favourite Angeline Musasiwa and a special shoutout, Brita and Lorraine Maphala. Sebz Hama.

They are all so beautiful in different ways. I don’t have a favourite but I am interested to note that the producer of the award-winning movie, ‘Mirage,’ was once a Miss Zimbabwe. I always thought I recognised her from elsewhere… I even thought I saw her on ‘Idols’ (Africa) but may be mistaken. Sylvia Vassilatos.

Brita Masalethulini and Lorraine Maphala-Phiri legendary queens, true women of substance. The level of humility and grace that’s upon those two women is just amazing. Godwill Tasunga.

Brita Maselethulini, moreso when she scooped the Miss Malaika title na Angie Musasiwa was young asi ndaive ndotoziva kupisa kwake. Takunda George Mhuriyengwe.

My favourite will always be Angeline Musasiwa 1994. I think she came fourth in the top 10. It was epic, especially when they played Leornard Dembo’s song Chitekete. She will forever be the greatest Miss Zim. Kerita Tawana Choga.

When Brita won Miss Malaika, I remember watching the finale husiku. Apa paipinda contestants she was the last kupinda. When results were announced it was a shock. There was this South African who came second. Haibo I enjoyed that one. – Carol Mudzamiri.

Brita Masalethulini is the only one I remember, she was widely celebrated this one. – Mwana wa Dennis.

Angeline, Dionne and Lorraine Maphala-Phiri were my favourites not forgetting Brita. Thank you earground. Watching Miss Zim was always a family event at home and we literally sat there together and critiqued or rooted for the girl.. I am loving the milestones Lorraine has had, lost the beauty pageant. She is GOALS. Loraine MaKhumalo Sibanda.
