Eastgate Shopping Centre was abuzz this Saturday as the five Dis-Chem Brain of 702 quarter-finalists from the week battled it out for a R5 000 cash prize and a spot in the semi-final round which will take place at the end of February. The youngest finalist for the week, Siviwe Shweni proved the incredible fact fanatic he truly is in a nail-biting, fast-paced round. He answered a total of 17 questions correct which secured himself a spot in the next round.
The mall activation proved nothing less than exhilarating for spectators, players and even the judges. It was a fun-filled event where listeners got to mingle with their favourite 702 Presenters.
702's Azania 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.
Siviwe was given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions from breakfast host Bongani Bingwa who was the quiz-master for the day. His love for sports, politics, and history helped him beat Operations Manager Byron Decker, Civil Engineer Banzi Twala, Physiotherapist Fatima Cachalia and Tsholofelo Motsogi who works in finance.
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.
