The finale for SABC3’s “Tropika Island of Treasure Curaçao” decreased to Team Cool Red (Nadia Jaftha and Trevor Lagerway) and Team Mango Peach (Siphesihle Vazi and Darren Solomon) vying for the R1 million prize.

Both teams were put through their paces within the final challenge, but it had been Team Cool Red who emerged victorious after correctly guessing the mixture to unlock the chest and reap the rewards.

In the reunion segment of the 9th season, which was wiped out a virtual space, host Katlego Maboe got the winners talking about their formidable partnership.

On emerging victorious, Jaftha, an actress, musician and social media sensation, said: “I hoped for the simplest , honestly, but i assumed that if I became too confident that i used to be getting to win then something was getting to change.

With Trevor, it had been easy to urge the challenges wiped out a particular way due to his lifestyle and knowledge during this regard. So, no – I didn’t expect to win but i used to be definitely hopeful.”

She added: “It feels surreal because I came in seeing myself as an underdog and that I don’t think anyone expected me to convert the opposite strong male and feminine celebrities who participated during this season. It’s really great representing Cape Town and therefore the colored community with this win. I’m super pleased with myself.”

Lagerway, a fitness fanatic, and MC added: “The final challenge was the foremost difficult task we undertook the entire season and after clinching that win, it took a short time for that feeling to sink in. We started off the finale in such an enormous lead but Vazi and Darren quickly trapped to us which stress definitely impacted our performance.

“But, standing on top of the castle with Nadia gave me such euphoria. It’s a sense I won’t forget anytime soon. it had been so epic standing abreast of the castle and waving that winning flag.

“The better part of the win was seeing the diligence Nadia and that I put in throughout the season had paid off. We made such an excellent team and it had been really great sharing that moment together with her .”

One of the toughest things for Jaftha was being unable to share the large news a secret from her family.

She shared: “I couldn’t tell my family that I won because they’re so bad at keeping secrets! My mom only acknowledged in the week because I knew that if I told her sooner, she would want to inform the entire family.

“It’s been so funny because she’s been begging me for the results for months and that I eventually had to form her believe that I did make it quite far because I arrived back in SA late during the filming process.

“So, I told her I made it far but that I didn’t win so she would get off my back. the primary thing you would like to try to do is sharing news like this but I knew I had to stay it covert just in case the news came out and would spoil the show for others.”

On how Lagerway plans to spend his share of R1 million, he revealed: “I have given an enormous chunk of it to The Lighthouse Foundation. That was something that I felt I needed to try to to. With the remainder of the cash, the plan was to require my wife on vacation before we welcome our baby into the planet in October, but due to Covid-19, we haven’t had the prospect to try to that just yet. I will be able to definitely attempt to be smart with the remainder of the cash .”

Jaftha donated a number of her winnings to The Habibia Children’s Home.

She added: “I also will be putting some money aside for a house. Property is so expensive in Cape Town so this may definitely give me the boost I want. When it’s safe to travel again, I would like to spoil myself with a touching trip also .”

While Lagerway, who has sold his gym, is watching taking his business online, he also has plans to start out delivering talks on health and fitness. And Jaftha, who has completed a movie which should be releasing next year, post the Covid-19 crisis, she also has some new music releasing soon.
