Now we know that Nandi Madida and Minnie Dlamini Jones have always been beauty queens… and we mean natural beauties.
Minnie Dlamini Jones took Instagram to celebrate Throw Back Tuesday today by posting the most adorable shot of her and Dr Langa Mngoma modelling together. The photo was taken at a modelling graduation concert back in 2008, and judging by Minnie’s wholesome look, it’s truly is a blast from the past.
Captioning their long-kept memories the TV star wrote: “What we’re gon’ do, right here, is
Go back, way back Back into time” This was the year 2000, @drlangamngoma and I choreographed our duo/group performance to “It’s Raining Men”🤣 at our modelling graduation for @roberta_alessandri_models. This was my first modelling graduation, and we won best duo/group performance. @nandi_madida won overall model of the year, @drlangamngoma came 2nd and I came 3rd.
“The following year @drlangamngoma and I dominated again getting tie first place 🥇 (Nandi was thankfully in Highschool 😜)
I entered many pageants and lost all of them, until 2002 where I won my first pageant and then went on to win Little Miss South Africa.
“(I’ve heard “No” far more than I’ve heard “Yes” in my life, which trained me for the career I have today) I’m so grateful for my sisters, we pushed each other, we competed hard but we always maintained love. A win for one was a win for all!!! Growing up with the Mngoma family was the beautiful, we had the best childhood ❤️ I’m so happy our families are still super close today after all these years. As the saying goes “It takes a village…”
