….as competition enters episode 2 this weekend
As Lip Sync Battle Africa enters its second week, MTV Base (DStv channel 322) is rolling out its big hitters in the most intense, testosterone-packed face-off yet: Nigerian superstar Flavour and South African actor and TV star Maps Maponyane are the latest celebrities to shrug off their inhibitions, let their hair down and get their guns out for Lip Sync Battle Africa (Saturday 7 May, 18:00 WAT).
Speaking on the forth coming challenge, Flavour said, ‘I was so pleased when I found out I was going to appear on Lip Sync Battle Africa. I am used to singing and performing live so lip synching was a new experience for me. The best word to sum up this experience for me is F-U-N! I really appreciated the support and energy of the audience and the awesome hosts Pearl Thusi and D’Banj. My competitor was on his A-game and I enjoyed going head to head with him; I am sure audiences will enjoy our Lip Sync Battle. While for Maps Maponyane he equally disclosed how excited he is to participating in the challenge, he however noted that Flavour was a tough competitor as he is such a big music star across Africa, but I just opted to try and compete, by talking a big game. All-in-all, we both had a really good time.”
Hosted by Pearl Thusi with colourful commentary from ‘koko master’ and Afrobeats star, D’Banj, Lip Sync Battle Africa kicked off last week with an epic battle between Denrele and Ebuka.
