Lagos| Nigeria: Entertainment divas Toke Makinwa and Chigurl have been revealed as the next contestants on MTV Base’s hilarious reality-music mash-up, Lip Sync Battle Africa.
Lip Sync Battle Africa, now in its third episode, will see TV/radio show host Toke Makinwa compete against popular comedienne Chigurl as they combat for the biggest bragging rights on the planet. “Lip syncing” or miming to two songs of their choice, one African, one international, only one of them will take home the Lip Sync Battle trophy.
A confident Toke said, “I have always been a huge fan of Lip Sync Battle; my favorite episode so far has to be with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. When I heard it was coming to Africa I was pretty excited, and then I got the call and I got even more excited. I have practiced day and night and I’m so ready to take Chigurl down. I’ve got this, she’s no competition, it’s on like Donkey Kong!”
Responded Chigurl, “My fans know that mimicking is my thing, so trust me on this one because you know as usual I’ll be bringing my ‘mar-kate’ on Lip Sync Battle Africa and it won’t be a ‘Weist’. Toke: get ready to be chewed up and spat out.”
Lip Sync Battle Africa kicked off on 30 April 2016 on MTV Base, and has already recorded epic combats; Denrele vs Ebuka, and Flavour vs Maps Maponyane. The show is hosted by the Koko master, D’Banj and well as South Africa’s Pearl Thusi.
