In a disturbing incident, the reigning Miss South Africa 2020, Shudufhadzo Musida, was subjected to a death hoax that surfaced on social media in November 2023. However, the beauty queen is alive and well, dispelling the false rumours.

False reports falsely claimed that Musida had tragically died in a car accident while on her way to a charity event. Contrary to these claims, Musida took to her Instagram to immediately deny the baseless reports and assured her followers of her well-being.

This alarming incident highlights the pervasive nature of misinformation on social platforms and its potential to affect the reputation and mental health of public figures. Musida’s swift response underscores the importance of fact-checking and responsible sharing in today’s digitally connected world.

The fabricated report quickly spread on social media, causing grief and concern among Musida’s supporters.

Many expressed condolences for the 27-year-old model, who made history as the first bald woman to win the Miss South Africa title and the second from Limpopo province. However, investigation revealed the article’s lack of authenticity, with the photo of the car taken from an unrelated incident in 2019.

Addressing her followers directly, Musida confirmed her well-being in an Instagram video, warning against believing unfounded claims circulating online. Seizing the moment, he highlighted the damaging effects of such fraud on mental health, especially amid the stress of the ongoing pandemic.
