The Role of Discipline

Fezile highlighted the critical role of discipline in his success, a quality he strives to uphold in his daily life. “Being in the right mental state and believing that I deserved this opportunity were essential,” he said. Fezile dedicated his victory to Wayne Stafford, the national director of Mister Supranational South Africa. “This win is also a heartfelt tribute to my aunt, who passed away last December. She was a significant inspiration in my life,” he noted.

In addition to his recent triumph, Fezile was also a runner-up in the Mister World competition. He gained recognition through his win on SABC 3’s The Presenter Search and Top Billing. Raised in Kwa-Zulu Natal, Fezile began his journey as a medical practitioner, model, and television presenter.

Previous Pageant winners in South Africa

Fezile is not the first South African to win international pageants. In recent years, Lalela Mswane was crowned Miss Supranational in 2021. Back in 2019, Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe. All these models have been putting the country on the map.
