When Steve Harvey announced at the recent Miss Universe 2019 pageant that Miss Philippines Gazini Ganados won the National Costume special award, Miss Malaysia Shweta Sekhon went to the stage and told Steve that she was the winner, not Gazini.

However, it was later clarified by the Miss Universe organization that Steve did not make a mistake in announcing Gazini as the winner.

Shweta took to social media to explain why she claimed to have won the award over Ganados, stating that there was a misunderstanding between her and the organizers.

Many have been asking me questions and clarification about the National Costume. Well 4 countries were briefed to be on standby as we were Top 4 for National Costume and Philippines was part of it too. We were told that a picture would be displayed if we made it to top 20 and if we don’t, we would have to put it on . The entire day the crew went on finding my costume as I was told to be the WINNER. That is why I got into the costume too.

“I am totally fine with it because in my eyes, every girl that came to compete is a winner! Philippines or Malaysia, there isn’t any difference because we are ONE… Congratulations to the very beautiful @gazinii too! Love you so much babe,” Shweta posted on Instagram.
