Lehodi Seoka crowned first Brain of 702 semifinalist at Maponya Mall

Engineer Lehodi Seoka took top honours at the first quarterfinals of the Dis-Chem Brain of 702 at Maponya Mall. He managed to answer a total of fifteen out of nineteen questions correct and walked away with a whopping R5 000 cash prize.

Lehodi was definitely determined to claim this victory and said he had been training for this moment his entire life.

The mall activation proved nothing less than exhilarating for spectators, players and even the judges. It was a fun-filled event and spectators and contestants got to meet their favourite 702 presenters.

702's Relebogile Mabotja and Gushwell Brooks were the overall judges making sure no stone was left unturned in the attempt to crown the ultimate fact fanatic from the week.

Lehodi along with four other contestants were given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions from quiz-master Eusebius McKaiser.

The annual competition gives those with a brilliant bank of general knowledge a chance to cash in and show off, both on-air and in front of a live audience at the weekly mall activations.

The talented Engineer beat Information Design student Sinoxolo Xama, Office Manager Lynne Hanley, Pharmacist Mayshree Rowjee and Property Specialist Conrad Chorumanail-biting round.
