Historic Moment: South Africa prepares to crown first black Mister Supranational

For the first time in history, South Africa is poised to crown its first-ever black Mister Supranational South Africa, who will represent the Mzansi nation at Mister Supranational 2024, taking place in Poland this year.

Amidst stiff competition, only three contenders have emerged as finalists. Out of the hundreds of gentlemen who initially registered to audition for Mister Supranational South Africa, Michael Benevolent, Hlumelo Matsha, and Fezile Mkhize have persevered to secure their spots. One of them will inherit the title from outgoing King Tylo Riberio.

Michael Benevolent, a strong contender for the Mister Supranational South Africa title, has garnered widespread admiration for his philanthropic efforts and community engagement. Hailing from Sandton, Gauteng, the 23-year-old has roots in Mpumalanga and is actively involved with various NGOs addressing issues of Gender-Based Violence and sexual health.

Fezile Mkhize, also known as Dr. Fezi in professional circles, is a familiar face in the media landscape as a TV host and presenter. Notably, he clinched the title of Mr. World 1st runner-up in 2019, making history as the first African male model to achieve this feat. With his wealth of pageantry experience, many believe Fezile is primed to represent South Africa at Mister Supranational in Poland.

Rounding off the top three contenders is Hlumelo Matsha, a 34-year-old multi-talented individual hailing from Alberton, Gauteng. Matsha wears many hats as a TV and radio host, actor, and entrepreneur, all while championing various social causes in his community. Leveraging his PR skills, Matsha has effectively communicated with the public about the pageant and actively engaged with his community.

The trio faced a rigorous question and answer segment, conducted online via Instagram, where they were probed on how they utilize their time effectively.

Mister Supranational South Africa announced via Instagram that the winner will be revealed this Saturday by the panel of judges, who will determine the most deserving candidate to represent South Africa on the global stage.
