Twitter pulled out an old video of Basetsana Khumalo being interviewed by Zozibini Tunzi as part of a stint on the show SABC’s Presenter Search.
In the 2 minutes 20-second video, Zozibini Tunzi is heard hailing and praising Bastetsana Khumulao on her being crowned Miss SA in 1994, making her the first black woman to ever hold the Miss SA title.
Basetsana, on the other hand, is being accused of being rude and condescending towards Zozibini Tunzi.
After she said "Im older than your mom" i had to go look up her age. Flippin Basetsana is just 45 and behaves like a gogo. SIES!!!!pic.twitter.com/5hQJunlD8f

DJ Fresh came out to clear the air as he was once a judge on the show.
You are being unnecessarily mischievous. As a former #PSO3 judge, i can tell you for free, that they are deliberately put through their paces, and such “difficult” interviews, to better prepare them for when they have the gig!! There is nothing here!!

What do you think? Was Basetsana being condescending to Zozibini Tunzi or are people reacting to something they have no context of?
