Vincent Bones wins #IdolsSA


Vincent is your new South African Idols winner. The 29 year-old was crowned the winner during the two hour, live finale at Carnival City. He beat out his fellow contestant Bongi, to take season ten’s title. Over 24million votes were cast in the week leading up to the finale, which is incredible! The biggest season yet! On being named the winner, Vincent said, “Thank you so much for the support. I have never experienced so much support in my life. Guys, thank you so much. Thank you so much”. Here’s what Vincent wins:

  • a R700 000 cash prize from headline sponsor Telkom, M-Net and Mzansi Magic;
  • a 24 month SmartHome Supreme internet connectivity package from Telkom including a 55 inch Samsung SmartTV, a wi-fi router, a 3G mi-fi router, a range extender, and 100GB data, worth R50 000;
  • a R247 300 Ford Fiesta Titanium with award-winning 1 litre Ecoboost Engine from Ford South Africa;
  • R80 000 worth of fashion from Truworths;
  • a Shure ULXD Digital Wireless system and personal monitoring system worth R118 000;
  • R60 000 worth of Yamaha musical equipment
  • An installed DStv Explora decoder and three months DStv Premium subscription worth R4219 from DStv

Let’s be honest, it was a foregone conclusion really, but I’m really hoping Randall signs Bongi to Universal Music too because she is incredibly talented. She embodies the songs she sings and given the opportunity to write and record her own tracks, I think she will become an incredibly successful recording artist. Let’s see what happens, but well done to Vincent Bones. He is truly deserving of this title too. Good luck to them both!

Hey, listen tomorrow I’m doing a live Google Hangout with both Bongi and Vincent. If you have questions leave a question/ comment below or tweet me 😉
