As the saying goes: All good things must come to an end. Comedian Kagiso Lediga’s journey in Jamaica is about to come to a halt in the final episode of Kagiso’s Island of Treasure.

The first episode premiered last night on SABC1 and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the new season entails.

In case you forgot, the cast comprises oh-so-sexy celebrities AKA, DA L.E.S, Phuti Khomo, Pearl Thusi, Jay Anstey, Reeva Steenkamp and Mario Ogle, as well as the seven lucky public winners Katleho Molai, Mbali Ngaleka, Genevieve Amy Arulappan, Sinethemba Buthelezi, Duan Wanty and Kefentse Moagi.

The first season of Kagiso’s Island of Treasure saw the comedian present with former Miss Jamaica Rosina Casserly, who is this year’s Tropika Island of Treasure co-host with DJ Fresh.

After a season of visiting museums, cooking food, singing in a Jamaican music studio and even having a fight with Rosina, Kagiso has really explored the Jamaican culture to the fullest.

But one thing has been left unsaid: Kagiso needs to make amends with Rosina. Has he seen the light?

He says: “I’m making my way back to Rosina’s dance studio to fix things between us. But how am I gonna do it? And will she forgive me?” There’s only one way to find out…

So  with this, the final episode of Kagiso’s Island of Treasure in place, see how his journey in Jamaica comes to an end . . .

Things are heating up in preparation of the new season of Tropika Island of Treasure, which was shot on location in Jamaica last year. The first episode premieres on 16 February on SABC1 and I can’t wait to see what the new season entails.

In case you forgot, the cast comprises oh-so-sexy celebrities AKA, DA L.E.S, Phuti Khomo, Pearl Thusi, Jay Anstey, Reeva Steenkamp and Mario Ogle, as well as the seven lucky public winners Katleho Molai, Mbali Ngaleka, Genevieve Amy Arulappan, Sinethemba Buthelezi, Duan Wanty and Kefentse Moagi.

This week’s episode on Kagiso’s Island of Treasure is hilarious: Kagiso Lediga has a breakdown on camera! Why, you may ask? Well, that’s what you get when you piss off your fellow co-host, former Miss Jamaica Rosina Casserly, and you decide to shoot the entire online TV show by yourself. Not a smart move there, Kagiso!

Remember everything he said back in Episode 2 about needing a good team? Well Kagiso seems to think he was wrong. He is of the opinion that “all you need is yourself”.

“I’m a one-man film crew and I’m hitting the streets of Jamaica to prove I’ve got what it takes to host the Tropika Island of Treasure 5!” Dream on, Kagiso!

After upsetting Rosina last week while visiting the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Kagiso’s entire crew abandoned him – leaving him to shoot the remainder of his online TV series by himself. This week, Kagiso walks the beaches and streets of Kingston, aiming to work all alone – a move which clearly sends him into complete meltdown mode – great for viewing pleasure. He even pops in at the Nelson Mandela Park, where he meets locals to find out about their knowledge about the legendary South African.

On the one hand, one can’t help but laugh at at his failure in keeping a camera crew together but viewers are all going to feel sorry for his cocky behaviour. It’s pretty apparent very fast, that Kagiso regret’s his behaviour and realises he can’t do the show by himself any more! A heartwarming moment, indeed.

Don’t miss next week’s episode when Kagiso aims to track down Rosina to apologise. He says: “I’ve never been one for saying sorry, but sometimes (very, VERY rarely), it just has to be done. It’s back to Rosina’s studio with me to make amends, find my team and finish this thing once and for all.”

Life is clearly lonely on the streets, so good luck to you Kagiso! Check out this week’s episode to see he’s public meltdown!

Kagiso’s Island of Treasure is finally becoming to be such a treat! After visiting one of Jamaica’s top sports clubs last week, SA comedian Kagiso Lediga visits the Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica this week – the online TV show’s 8th episode.

I must admit that Kagiso is only starting to grab my attention and interest for Jamaica since last week’s episode… Finally he is getting somewhere in his quest to outshine 5FM DJ, DJ Fresh, one of the co-hosts of season five of Tropika Island of Treasure. (which premiers next  month on SABC1). With enough buzz about the season starting to kick into gear, I can’t wait to see how it will pan out and whether a celebrity or a public contestant will walk away with the R1 million prize money.

Back to this week’s episode . . . Kagiso does a fine job of alienating his camera crew and the beautiful Tropika Island of Treasure co-host and former Miss Jamaica, Rosina Casserly, when they visit the Bob Marley Museum to shed some light on the history of reggae and show off his skills as a serious documentarian.

While he doesn’t exactly showcase much of what’s inside the museum itself, reggae fans and die-hard Marley fans will appreciate graffiti of music legend Bob Marley outside the museum’s walls as well as some of his famous music lyrics echoed on these walls too. But what could possibly go wrong?

Kagiso’s quest for fame and outshining his cast and crew become a little too much, as he angers Rosina and his crew – to the point where he is left standing all alone outside the museum.

Next week, Kagiso has to pick up his bruised ego, knowing that it didn’t go so well as he had hoped at the Bob Marley Museum. He says: “It’s ok, I’m a smart guy. I can do this on my own. I’ll show them. They will see.”

Will he survive without his crew? Will Rosina forgive Kagiso for his arrogance? Check out this week’s episode…

It’s episode 7 of Kagiso’s Island of Treasure and things are sure hotting up somewhat! Thank goodness! I was starting to think: what is Kagiso trying to do in Jamaica? Well, he certainly ain’t doing anything to outshine DJ Fresh, who was there to co-host the SABC1 reality TV show, Tropika Island of Treasure (which premiers in February, might I add)

So while in Jamaica, I don’t think Kagiso’s been getting any exercise.. In fact he goes on to say: ” The last sport I played involved a Ping-Pong ball and a plastic cup.”

So in this week’s of Kagiso’s Island of Treasure,  the vivacious Tropika Island of Treasure co-host and former Miss Jamaica, Rosina Casserly, takes Kagiso to a local sports club to meet one of the world’s greatest athletes: Yohan Blake. He may run fast, but let’s see how he does when he’s in the hot seat with Kagiso? How on earth dis he manage to get to meet Yohan? Another treat for fans is catching a glimpse of another legendary athlete, Usain Bolt (screams!!!!)

Will Kagiso give up his quest to overshadow Fresh? Or will he even give up comedy to become a track athlete and what advise does he get at the gym?

Next week, you’re in for a treat!  Kagiso says he needs to get down to business and show people his serious side. We’ll see him head off to the Bob Marley Museum to discover the heart and soul of Jamaican culture.

Anyway, check out this week’s episode… (And see if Kagiso is star struck amongst some of the world’s greatest athletes – I certainly would be!)

Kagiso clearly loves jerks! Well that’s according to this week’s episode (number 6 to be exact) of the popular online TV series, Kagiso’s Island of Treasure.

Last week, Kagiso spent time in a recording studio perfecting his singing skills and this week, he and Tropika Islands of Treasure co-host, Rosina Casserly, a former Miss Jamaica winner, are aiming to perfect their culinary skills in a local Jamaican kitchen.

So why does Kagiso fall in love with a jerk? Well, as viewers soon find out, Jerk is a Jamaican type of seasoning that they use to cook with or eat with all their meals….

Kagiso explains his motive for going into the kitchen this episode by saying: “Ever since I got to Jamaica, I’ve been hearing about this ‘jerk’ chicken stuff. Apparently it’s some kind of spicy dish. Rosina’s taking me to Grill 71 to try it out. I doubt it’ll come close to the stuff my mum makes at home.”

Of course, at Grill 71, Kagiso tries to upstage the local Jamaican chef by showing her his favourite South African cuisine, pap and vleis, much to her delightment when she tastes his concoction.

But will he get used to loving jerk seasoning?

Next week, his adventures continue….For some reason, Rosina wants Kagiso to meet her at a local gym. Who the heck does she think they’re going to run into? Oh and is Kagiso ever going to really upstage DJ Fresh? What is the real point of him visiting Jamaica then?

I can’t wait to watch to see what he’ll get up to next – or who he’ll run into . . . Anyway, check out this week’s episode… And here’s to you emulating Kagiso’s culinary skills in the kitchen :-)
