The artist formerly known as DreamTeam’s Dash, Zulu Mkathini hosts the series and does the most – from the brief, to the overall planning of the vibe, to getting feedback from the guest of honour before the other judges even arrive. During the elimination, he’ll give feedback on the overall vibe of the shindig.
Carpo More aka The Gown Lifestyle is known for… well, his gowns, but also for being Cassper Nyovest’s bestie. From a renowned YouTube channel to TouchHD to multiple random club encounters, Carpo brings his particular brand of humour to Ultimate House Vibe to preside over the entertainment aspects of the event – the games and music.
Khanyi Mbau needs little introduction – she’s literally the apex of the Mzansi entertainment industry (and thus perfect for this show). An actress and TV host, she’s appeared in countless TV series – including Muvhango and Uzalo – and is a persistent figure in the press. She’ll be adjudicating the “theme” – the decor and ambience of the event.
Last but not least, comedian Mpho Popps will judge the food. He’s a Comics Choices Award winner, South African Music Awards host and stand-up who’s taken his laugh-craft all the way to Los Angeles and Canada (the Just For Laughs Festival) – he’s also hosted a reality cooking show, so he’s perfect for the job!
Castle Lite unlocks the Ultimate House Vibe premieres on Mzansi Magic on Thursday 24 October at 21:30 and repeats on Saturday at 22:15.
