I was first introduced to Tropika Island of Treasure when my husband, Siraaj Cassiem, edited season 6. Now, season 7 of the much anticipated series will soon premiere on Monday, 27 March 2017, on SABC 3 at 19h30.
I attended the launch event recently, where selected members of the media got to see a sneak peek of what to expect.
With six super-successful seasons under its belt, Tropika wanted to up the ante in season 7 of Island of Treasure – this time taking place in the sizzling Seychelles.
“We couldn’t rest on our laurels – it was important for us to innovate and to offer viewers something new and exciting in order to make their viewing experience even more enjoyable” says Miantha Padayachee, Brand Group Manager for Tropika.
Under the watchful eye of host Minnie Dlamini and Games Master Jonathan Boynton-Lee, contestants compete for the grand prize under the tropical sun.
Celebrity contestants like the delectable Siv Ngesi, the always glamorous Jessica Nkosi, Afrikaans songstress Karlien van Jaarsveld, rapper Emtee, multi-talented Anga Makubalo, heart throb Maurice Paige and zesty Zakeeya Patel, will take the beaches of the Seychelles by storm as the new season launches on Monday, 27 March at 7:30pm on SABC 3.
Above and beyond the fun, games and smoooth celeb contestants, Tropika also announced a new theme song in a 3-way collaboration. Rapper EmTee, Singer/Songwriter Anga Makubalo and Afrikaans songstress Karlien van Jaarsveld, will set the tone for the season 7 of Tropika Island of Treasure. All download proceeds will be donated to the Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa or CHOC.
“We believe in doing good while doing business. We also wanted to honour all socially aware Tropika fans by giving back to those in need of a little kindness” says Padayachee.
Tropika will also be rewarding consumers for purchasing Tropika during March-June as they give away thousands of weekly prizes such as Airtime, watches, sunglasses Vouchers & LG appliances. All consumers that enter will also be put into the draw for the Grand Prize of a new Kia Sportage.
Remember to make a date with your TV screen on Monday, 27 March 2017, on SABC 3 at 19h30. #TIOT7
