Johannesburg, 9 December 2019: Sun International wishes to congratulate Sun Met 2020 Visionary, Zozibini Tunzi, on redefining beauty globally by claiming the 2019 Miss Universe title. Zozi’s triumph cast a shining a light on our great nation and continent. Zozibini Tunzi’s journey, which began with being crowned Miss South Africa in August 2019 has ushered in a new era of Queendom in the beauty industry and inspires people from different walks of life to own their space and become true Visionaries in their own right this 2020.


Sun International continues to join forces with the biggest names in South Africa and Africa over the years to offer the flagship fashion, lifestyle, and horse racing event – the Sun Met. The 2020 Theme ‘African Luxury: Visionaries’ encapsulates the very essence of each and every one of the personalities who will be attending the event, including one of the Faces of Sun Met and newly crowned Miss Universe 2019, Zozibini Tunzi.


The Sun Met takes place on February 1st, 2020 at the Kenilworth Racecourse and fellow Face of the Sun Met, Bonang Matheba will bring her House of BNG as the official celebration partner. This presents the perfect pairing for all event attendees as they enjoy Africa Is Not A Jungle featuring Black Coffee, Themba (formerly known as Euphonik), and Da Capo. Trevor Stuurman, Palesa Mokubung, Holly Rey, Courtnaé Paul, Imprint ZA, Masa Mara, and Basel Grey will bring fashion and music to life as the official Visionaries of the event.


Anthony Leeming, Sun International Chief Executive Officer commented: “We want to pay homage to the visionaries in 2020 by affording a platform at the Sun Met where creatives of all kinds can showcase their ideas through fashion, music, and horse racing – where imagination comes to life in all aspects.”
