After Zozibini's win, there was a heartwarming moment on stage involving Miss Nigeria that caught people's attention. For some, it was friendship goals, for others it was a black girl magic moment; but it was also a moment of joy from one roommate to another.  Miss Nigeria, Olutosin Itohan Araromi and the newly-crowned Miss Universe were roommates throughout the duration of the event.

Tunzi posted a video on her Instagram page the first time they met, stating that her roommate had arrived and she had officially become her photographer and videographer.

At a time when relations between South Africa and Nigeria are still tense due to the xenophobic attacks, the show of love is a good message to send across to both countries.
