Love Island SA is coming to DStv in 2021

As reported by Channel 24, the raunch reality TV show is making a localised version in Mzansi and it could be ready to premiere on our screens as early as late February 2021.

While more details of the show have yet to be announced, it has been confirmed that iTV, the rightsholder of the Love Island franchise has approved Multichoice’s licence to recreate the reality TV show for South Africa’s audience.

The only confirmed detail of this epic announcement is that Love Island SA will premiere on M-Net, channel 101 on DStv.

What is the reality TV show about?

For those who don’t dabble much in the fantasy world of reality TV, Love Island is a contest that pits single men and women in gruelling situations, all in the name of ‘love’.

Contestants must form romantic bonds with their respective significant other and by all means, avoid falling into the lustful seduction of new entrants.

The purpose of the game is to test out the loyalty and resilience of a couple but that’s not the only trick to winning the prize.

Viewers get to vote for their favourite couple and those who falter to lust and ruin their newly formed situationships are eliminated.
