Johannesburg - After an unforgettable journey, SA’s biggest reality hip hop show The Hustle finally has a winner.

Bigstar Johnson (Tumelo Rakumako) has been crowned champion, defeating co-finalist ShabZi Madallion (Leshaba Rampedi) in an outcome decided by viewers’ votes.

The public got an opportunity to choose their winner via the WeChat platform and Bigstar, who judge AKA rooted for from the onset, walked off victorious in front of a live studio audience in Randburg.

Bigstar who hails from Kempton Park walks away with a  R 250 000 cash prize, a record and management deal to the value of R250 000 with The Vth Season, a PR management deal with African Star Communications, a music video worth R 100 000, and an opportunity to perform at Maftown Heights in November.

Runner up ShabZi Madallion doesn’t go home empty handed and takes home a cash price of R 50 000.
