Oscar von Memerty (aka Sko-Tiny) is the Most Wanted Outlaw in MTV’s #YouGotGot thanks to his outrageous pranks that had both the unsuspecting public and celebrities running for their lives.
The hip-hop dancer, motivational speaker and outlaw prankster took the title from fellow competitors Simmi Areff, Graham Haynes, Lihle ‘Lindzy’ Msimang and Tracey-Lee Oliver thanks to thousands of votes from MTV viewers who were captivated by his larger-than-life personality and his dope pranks. Fans voted by their thousands on social media. Twitter was the most utilised voting platform followed by Instagram and Facebook.
Support from the #Teamoscar camp was astounding:
‘voting for Oscar all the way #TeamOscar’ @LESEGO_MAKWE;
@SindiGYal also couldn’t contain herself, ‘Oscar stays winning #TeamOscar’ while avid fan @ ?NalediViona said “I must say, the best Outlaw is Oscar #Yougotgot #TeamOscar”.
The #YouGotGot Most Wanted marathon and winner announcement was aired on MTV (DStv Channel 130) on Saturday December 12, from 16:45 to 19:00.
As South Africa’s most wanted Outlaw, on fleek Oscar will be heading to Los Angeles for the 2016 MTV Movie Awards in April along with a lucky voter from the public. Together they will produce content for MTV (DStv Channel 130) on the star-studded red carpet and get an opportunity to be part of the show.
Meanwhile Sko-Tiny’s fellow Tracey-Lee Oliver has been banished to a prankster retirement home where she will rest her weary feet. With one Outlaw axed, MTV is launching a rookie campaign – looking for the funniest person to join the crazy Outlawz for Season 2 of #Yougotgot. Viewers can audition for the Rookie Outlaw by posting a short videoto www.mtv.co.za telling MTV why they’d be a good outlaw, who they’d prank and what their prank idea is. If chosen, they could feature in season 2 or even become the new Outlaw.
Says MTV channel director Dillon Khan: “We are delighted with viewer response to #YouGotGot. The Outlawz took pranking to a new level; entertaining with ease and excellence. The next season will continue to break new ground – remember no body is safe!”
A triumphant Oscar said, “Winning this kind of competition was part of a vision and we have done it. A huge thanks goes out to all my #TeamOscar fans. I had said from the outset that with ‘drive, determination and passion’ we can win and we have. This is just the beginning. See you in LA.’
The ever feisty Tracey-Lee commented, “I had the best time being an Outlaw. It felt so good being bad. I’m grateful to my fans for their support and the many votes they posted. If you see me in public, you’re probably going to get pranked’.
