Nigeria’s heavyweight TV perspnalities, Denrele Edun and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu are set to do battle in the premiere episode of the hotly anticipated reality contest Lip Sync Battle Africa premiering at 6.00pm, Saturday 30 April on MTV Base (DStv channel 322).
Both TV personalities are set to clash in a sizzling on-screen confrontation in front of millions of TV viewers across Africa, as the massive global TV hit finally makes its debut in Nigeria. After lip syncing (or miming) to two songs of their choice, just one of them will lift the Lip Sync Battle trophy and earn the biggest bragging rights on the planet as the inaugural Lip Sync Battle champion.
The eagerly-awaited African version of the global TV hit, Lip Sync Battle Africa is hosted by South African actress and TV presenter Pearl Thusi alongside Nigerian superstar and “Koko Master” D’Banj.
Commenting on his appearance in the upcoming episode, Denrele remarked, “I am going to have a lot of fun on Lip Sync Battle Africa. This is precisely the sort of thing I like to do ordinarily and I will feel right at home on that stage! My fans can expect to see Denrele at his crazy, quirky best and I think that will make the show very watchable. Too bad for Ebuka that he is coming up against me!”
