“Congratulations on your graduation Queen @abigailmusida!”
Her post was met with support from fans of the reigning queen:
“Sad generation and their misdirected anger want to spoil it for her, sis should enjoy every privilege that comes with her Miss SA title...Congratulations to our Queen.”

While all other graduates were left to attend a virtual ceremony due to Level 4 lockdown restrictions, the local beauty queen was given the opportunity to receive her post-graduate certificate in person.
Heading to the Twitter streets under the hashtag #MissSA, South Africans shared their passionate opinions about the hotly contested incident.
Check out some of the comments below: @MphoMoalamedi said: "People are upset about this and rightfully so. All graduates put in the work and didn't even get their names read out during the virtual graduation ceremony, but she gets a special graduation. Yes, she is Miss SA, but she is a student like the rest. This smells of classism."
@SithaleKgaogelo said: "I am yet to see someone who to defend this Miss SA unfairness without accusing people of jealousy. You guys only hate privilege when it's politicians and their family members, anyone else you are fine. The anger should not be directed to her though, but Wits!"
@MikeDandala said: "Big ups to Wits University for showing Miss SA that she's most definitely Miss SA. What a great honour by the institution... Jealousy will kill y'all."
