Reigning Miss World Zimbabwe 2017 Chiedza Mhosva last night departed for the Miss World finale to be held in The Sanya City Arena, China on November 18.
Chiedza who has been under the care of the Miss Zimbabwe Trust led by Mrs Mary Chiwenga was seen off by a large delegation which included media, Miss Zim Trust officials, friends and family.
Speaking exclusively to Zimbuzz at the Harare International Airport, Chiedza said she was going to use Jah Prayzah’s song for her talent show category.
She chose to dance to the song Goto off Jah Prayzah’s Jerusalema album.
“For the talent section I’m going to be doing the Jerusarema dance, I chose to do something that’s dear to our Zimbabwean heart, and traditional dance is so dear to our hearts,” said Chiedza.
“I chose the song because of its vibe and the cultural richness in the lyrics but generally its a very good song.”
She also told Zimbuzz that being a national Queen means promoting everything Zimbabwean.
Miss World Fast Track Shows which Chiedza will be participating in include- Top Model, Talent, Multi-Media, Sport, Beauty With A Purpose, and the brand new “Head to Head Challenges.
In her parting speech at the Harare International Aiport VIP lounge, Chiedza described Mrs Chiwenga as a human being filled with so much love.
“When I arrive in the Miss Zimbabwe boot camp I was just a simple girl but now I am a national Queen and I’m going to represent my country at the Miss World,” said Chiedza.
“I tried to love you back but every time you ‘out-loved me’ because you possess so much love,” she said of Mrs Mary Chiwenga.
Mrs Chiwenga said Chiedza was a different queen and she had so much confidence in her.
“I want you to ooze your usual confidence on that stage, tell them I am Chiedza Lorraine Mhosva and I’m here to take the crown,” said Mrs Chiwenga.
“When you get there, make yourself a winner the moment you land in China, walk tall, walk proud.”
