Another woman with many hats in the South African industry, Carol Bouwer, also took some time off her busy schedule to write a heartfelt message to the beautiful Basetsana Kumalo.

Dear Basetsana, As host of Ms World in Africa for M-Net, my task was to spend the day with you and create a beautiful narrative of a day in the life of a newly crowned Ms SA crown bearer! I had just returned from the Seychelles which was my last stop en route to finally interview my very own Ms SA! The crew and I couldn't wait! We arrived at your Rosebank suite early and you were already in your make up chair... Upon realizing I was just going to do lipstick and a quick wardrobe change- you insisted I get equally beautified! Your first appointment was with a true giant- Madiba and upon arrival at Union Buildings when Mama Mary Mxadana took you through and as I stood aside to report to camera on that encounter, you pulled me in to meet him for the first time! OMG! I won't go on too long but suffice to say the day was long and memorable in the most beautiful way. What you did in the evening when we filmed the dinner scene taught me a lot about being a host! Life long lesson! You realised that my then wardrobe sponsors had neglected to add an evening dress and you raided your wardrobe and insisted I choose first before you decided what to wear- a little black number! Everyone still talks about how you made the cameras stop rolling at the Mbokodo Awards last year so you could "fix my crown" - a moving moment which speaks to your generosity of heart and your beautiful caring soul! As you celebrate today's beautiful gift of life, I celebrate a beautiful girl who has lived life joyfully, with generosity, elegance, love, a great sense of occasion but most of all I celebrate your love for your family- immediate and extended, I celebrate the many careers I have watched you support, I celebrate your love of life and your commitment to living everyday fully as if it were your last! Thank you for making me less shy 😂😂(only you will know what that means) Bassie your physical beauty won you the Miss South Africa crown- but your heart and soul won you South African hearts❤️🎊🎈 A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHILD❤️
