Reeva Steenkamp’s Reality TV Show ‘Tropica Island of Treasure’ airs Following Her Valentine’s Day Death … Boyfriend Oscar Pistorius Charged with Murder
Haunting and prophetic broadcast of Reeva Steenkamp’s Reality TV Show ‘Tropica Island of Treasure’ airs in the wake of models murder.
The South African Broadcasting Corp. aired the reality TV program ”Tropika Island of Treasure” just days after the death of Reeva Steenkamp at the hands of South African Olympic icon Oscar “the Blade Runner” Pistorius. Her boy friend Pistorius has been charged with murder. According to accounts, Steenkamp told her family that she was very proud of being in the show and wanted them to watch it. However, the video that has been released is rather bizarre, haunting and eye opening as to the comments that she made making reference to your journey in life and how you exit is important. Wow, how prophetic.
“I think the way that you go out, not just your journey in life, but the way that you go out and the way you make your exit is so important,” Steenkamp says in the video. “You either made an impact in a positive or a negative way, but just maintain integrity and maintain class and just remain true to yourself.
“I’m going to miss you all so much and I love you very, very much.”
The South African Broadcasting Corp. aired the “Tropika Island of Treasure” program, showing the late Steenkamp — the victim of a Valentine’s Day shooting at the home of Pistorius, the Olympic star and double-amputee athlete. She is laughing and smiling, and blowing a kiss toward the camera in Jamaica when it was filmed last year.
SABC said it was dedicated to Steenkamp and displayed the words “Reeva Steenkamp 19 August 1983 – 14 February 2013″ between images of a rose and a candle in a short tribute before the show aired. She was also seen blowing the kiss as she sat on a Jamaican beach and her name again appeared on screen with the years of her birth and death.
The country was rocked Thursday when news broke of Steenkamp’s shooting death at the upscale house of the star athlete. Pistorius was arrested and charged with her murder and remains in custody in a police station. His family has strongly denied prosecutors’ claims that he murdered her.
Steenkamp’s family said earlier Saturday that it had not been contacted by either the SABC — South Africa’s national broadcaster — or the show’s producers for permission to air it, but were not opposed to it because Reeva wanted everyone to see it.
