The model and actress will judge alongside some of South Africa's most prestigious personalities including actress Omuhle Gela; founder of the Fashion Industry Awards Simphiwe Majola; owner and coach of “Coached by Tem“ Temieke Streicher; winner of the Vodacom Durban July Fashion experience Andries Du Preez and ”Forgive and Forget“ TV presenter, Doris Msibi.
The awards are set to take place on Sunday, May 29.
In an online interview the reality TV star said that becoming a pageant girl has always been a dream, but by judging the pageant she will be living vicariously through each contestant.
“This is something close to my heart because, at some stage, young Nale also wanted to be a pageant girl ... I will be vicariously living my dream through these ladies by being a judge.”
She said she’s looking to select a candidate who might help impart the knowledge that teenagers need.
“We need someone who has a strong character with self-awareness. Not only am I looking at basic judge criteria, but I'm also looking for the kind of Miss Teen I wish I had when I was their age. A girl wise beyond her years.”
Mogadime is also reportedly set to make her debut on the upcoming thriller, “Beast”, helmed by Idris Elba.
The scope of her role is unclear at this stage.
Actors Sharlto Copley, Iyana Halley and Leah Sava Jeffries feature prominently in the film, which was shot within 10 weeks in the rural provinces of Limpopo and Northern Cape, and in Cape Town.
