The first post stated, “She’s smooother than smoooth. Known for her witty pranks and killer voice.  Can you guess which of our favourite celebs will be heading up Team Cool Red?”, fans instantly started guessing who the mystery contestant might be, with the majority of the comments suggesting that it is social media influencer, Nadia Jafta. The next post saw assumptions being made again, with fans stating that it is definitely actor Kay Sibiya, of Uzalo fame. The image was captioned with, “Can you guess who will be heading up Team Peach? He’s an actor and model who has graced our screens on some of Mzansi’s biggest TV shows!”.

Tropika Island Of Treasure will showcase a range of local celebrities competing to be the last islander standing, after they compete in a range of tasks and challenges. Season nine is scheduled to air in late 2019 on SABC 3.
