Living da smoooth life in Mauritius
Thando Hlope sipped his way to the top and confidently took his place in the sun as the winner of the 2014 Tropika Island of Treasure reality show that was held in sunny Mauritius.
Hosted by the confident Pearl Thusi, the reality show saw a season packed with drama, excitement and fun as South African contestants were able to live da smoooth life and compete on an exotic, tropical island for a cash prize of R1 million.
A student who studies full-time and still finds time to work, winner Thando is on top of the world after this life-changing experience that landed him 1 million big ones.
“My mom was my greatest inspiration to enter the competition,” Thando says as he flashes his biggest smile. Thando claims his greatest strategy in winning was to remain confident and stay as smoooth as Mango Peach – one of his favourite Tropika flavours.
There will be no big spending yet, as this young, ambitious chap is focused on finishing his studies first. Well done Thando!
