‘Fresher than fresh’ South African hip-hop artist Da L.E.S has won season five of the Tropika Island of Treasure reality TV show, leaving Jamaica a millionaire after 10 episodes. “I am grateful for winning and would have been happy if anybody else had won,” he says. “The show brings people together and towards the end I really felt anyone of us deserved to win,” he explains. “My main objective was to have as much fun in Jamaica as possible. I guess lady luck was on my side; I didn’t win any challenges other than the one that counted the most.”
The hip-hop pioneer’s first plan to spend the winnings is to continue investing in L.E.S and making more music.
“It has been another amazing season of Tropika Island of Treasure,” says Stimulii CEO and executive producer of the show, Samantha Moon. “Season 5 has taken us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions- from anxiety and tears to excitement and laughing until our sides hurt. Les was a great player who kept us thoroughly entertained throughout the season. He is a deserving winner of the R 1 million prize,” she concludes.
Island of Treasure 6 is headed to the sexy Seychelles so get those swimming skills ready and look out for more information on the new sponsor to be released soon.
