On 1 September 2017 it was announced that the wildly popular campaign and TV show, Tropika Island of Treasure, would be rolling out an eighth season – set in the Maldives and hosted by Katlego Maboe.
A large part of what makes Tropika Island of Treasure as popular as it is, is the celebrity element. When #TIOT8 was announced, no celebrities names were revealed – until now.
Over the past week Tropika has been revealing one celebrity a day, now totalling the seven that will join in on the fun in paradise.
The celebrities for #TIOT8 are:
· Khanya Mkangisa
· Brendan Peyper
· Sbahle Mpisane
· Karabo Mogane
· Tumi Voster
· Nay Maps
· Melinda Bam
Miantha Padayachee, Brand Group Manager for Tropika, is looking forward to seeing what this group of celebrities will bring to #TIOT8. “As with all past seasons of Tropika Island of Treasure, the mix of celebs has been incredibly diverse with each person bringing something unique and entertaining to the table – and this season is no different. I’m excited to see how their different personalities and strengths play out on the island. This season we have a few surprises in store – for both the celebs and the consumers who join them in the Maldives,” Padayachy adds.
#TIOT8 will once again air on SABC3, from 5 February 2018. “SABC3 is excited to have Tropika Island of Treasure back for another season. This campaign gives our viewers an opportunity to become stars and a stage to shine on national TV. We look forward to finding strong hidden talent during the upcoming auditions,” says Aisha Mohamed, SABC3 Head of Bouquet
