Musician Anga NaakMusiQ and his partner Bongs are the official winners of the Tropika Island of Treasure season 7.

The duo became one million rand richer following a challenging 12 week competition against fellow celebrities and fans.

The competition required physical and mental stability, some of the distinct attributes both NaakMusiQ and Bongs consistently displayed throughout the season.

“The experience was insane for both Bongs and I! It was intense, exciting, exhausting and fun all at the same time,” laughs NaakMusiq.

“I still can’t believe we won R1 million – it’s a dream come true! I definitely had the best celebrity partner and the whole Tropika experience is one I will never forget,” adds Bongs.

Set on the picturesque white sands and turquoise waters of the Seychelles, TIOT returned with a refreshing new look, with the new host Minnie Dlamini and Games Master Jonathan Boynton-Lee.

“This season of TIOT has been an astounding success. Our focus on ensuring that we produce a programme that enabled us to connect with our audience, coupled with world-class production and an integrated alignment to our brand essence, saw the show trending on a weekly basis, which was fantastic. It was great to see South Africans engaging with and enjoying our content, the contestants and the various activities they undertook throughout the season,’ says Miantha Padayachee, Brand Group Manager.

In line with their long-standing support for the Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa (CHOC), Tropika collaborated with celebrity contestants and consumers to raise funds for the foundation.
