28-year-old aspiring actor and presenter, Siphesihle Sangweni has officially been crowned the Ultimate vibe king and walked away with R150 000 when he won season 2 of Ultimate House Vibe unlocked by Castle Lite last night.
Siphesihle, better known as Lamza on the show, beat out 11 other contestants including his top 2 counterpart, Isaaih Letsoalo, affectionately known as Bomba eCute when he rose to the top. Lamza’s victory was a landslide win as he scooped most of the judge’s and fan votes on social media.
He threw 2 vibes this season with his first one being on episode 3 against Noxolo where he took the Ultimate House Vibe viewers to his hometown of Finetown. His whole community came out to support him and help him put together a great vibe. And despite the drama with his guest of honour and his guests who missed the mark on the theme, he was lauded on the quality of his food, music and the general vibe with Khanyi Mbau saying: “your vibe was complete”.
He then went on to annihilate Bomba in episode 7 as they went head-to-head in a fierce top 2 battle to find out who the Ultimate vibe king really is.
Lamza threw an extra cold vibe for his guest of honour, Ntando Duma and received rave reviews from Ntando herself, the judges and viewers who skyrocketed his name to number 2 on the Twitter trends list.
The writing was on the wall for Bomba when his final vibe was less than disappointing for the judges while Lamza’s vibe set the bar for all vibes to come.
But, Bomba didn’t leave the show empty handed, he received R20 000 in cash from Castle Lite, as well as a year’s supply of Africa’s biggest premium beer.
Castle Lite Marketing Manager, Marsha Kumire has congratulated Lamza on his win and called this season a resounding success. “As a brand, we are proud to have watched Siphesihle rise to the top and be crowned Ultimate Vibe King. His tenacity has shone through all season long and he is a deserving winner of the R150 000 cash prize,” she said.
“What’s more, we are certain that we have unlocked yet another star that will follow in the footsteps of Ultimate House Vibe season 1 winner, Don Dada. And that’s what we’re all about as a brand; not only do we own the most extraordinary experiences in the country, but we also give platforms to young hopefuls who have what it takes to succeed,” she continued.
Siphesihle Sangweni, aka Lamza is a 28-year-old business man and aspiring media personality from Finetown in the Vaal. He describes himself as a self-motivated person who is very confident and determined to win at life. He entered the show after a colleague begged him to enter because of the vibes he has hosted in Finetown.
“I was chosen because of my character. When you look at me and then look at the rest of the contestants, I am very different from them and I stand out. I am from the township and you can tell, even in the way I speak. I know my story and I am proud to be myself,” he says.
Lamza says that he knew from the moment he was cast on the show that this would be a life-changing journey for him. “Winning this show will change my life. I am the type of person who loves giving back to the community and I throw a lot of community benefit events to raise funds for township projects. Winning the R150 000 will help me contribute to this course and give back to the community which has supported me. I will also give back to vulnerable children such as orphans,” he continues.
What makes the Ultimate House Vibe for him is the dress code, music and the general vibe.
