Following being announced as the host of Tropika Island of Treasure Curaçao, Katlego Maboe will also be the voice behind the show’s theme song ‘Smoooth Fame And Fortune’.
The track, produced by Ross Finck, sees Maboe’s return to music and has been inspired by the tropical vibe and smoooth setting of Curaçao.
Katlego Maboe, who recorded the theme song to the show’s previous season held in the Maldives, is thrilled to have been able to return to the recording studio for yet another catchy Tropika Island of Treasure tune.
“The vibe on this track is totally different from what viewers would remember from season 8. When producing it, the team really set out to showcase the unique experience of Curaçao – because it really is a destination like no other! I think viewers will really love it; it’s incredibly catchy and will have everyone singing along during every episode,” says Maboe.
Katlego performed the song live on Expresso morning show studios. Watch below:
