It goes without saying that Naomi Campbell loves South Africa. In fact, we regard her as one of us and following her heartfelt speech at Winnie Mdikizela-Mandela's funeral earlier this year, South African's were quick to name her Naomi "Nomzamo" Campbell.
The supermodel is currently in the country launching the Global Citizen Festival which is set to take place later this year. Naomi will be producing the festival.
“Vision with action can change the world” - Nelson Mandela I’m proud to be a producer at the Global Citizen Festival in Africa in Johannesburg on December 2. The event will celebrate the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year and will be their largest festival advocating change for the world’s most marginalised people to date. Global Citizen focuses on 6 UN Global Goals: Eradicating Poverty and Hunger, Health, Education, Girls & Women, and Water & Sanitation. Join @glblctzn along with global leaders, artists, and activists to #BeTheGeneration and commit to end extreme poverty by 2030.

It also looks like she can't get enough of our music, particularly Gqom. Posting a picture via her Instagram Stories, Naomi seemed to be enjoying the sounds of Babe Wodumo and Distruction Boyz.
Naomi Campbell is really proving herself as an honorary South African. The way the world loves Gqom! pic.twitter.com/TKOEDn3YVR
Naomi is not the first international star to fall in love with Gqom, in December last year, supermodel Jourdan Dunn was on holiday in South Africa and was quick to introduce her fans to the genre.
