    Denrele will definitely win this one hands down! His energy is soooooo second to none and if he doesn’t win this, then Na Ojoro matter.

    You just have to give it to Dbanj. Despite his dwindling musical career, he has still managed to stay relevant in the Entertainment industry.

    If it is lip sync battle “Africa” why are they separating it? Nigerians should watch Nigerian celebrities and South Africans should watch South African celebrities ?? Just remove the “Africa” from the title and call it based on the regions where it’ll air.

    @blueeyed like! I really don’t get this nonsense really. From the E Africa thing being clearly South African, to now this Lip Sync Battle African being clearly South African..they now created another section for Nigerians. Lol. Yes I get SA is much more developed and all, but if you’re gonna use South Africa predominantly, let it be that way all the way. Its even worse for other African countries, cause they hardly get acknowledged. Africa is made up of countries, not South Africa, and the rest.

      and the most hurtful part of it is dat Nigeria is the centre of entertainment. the E africa aspect really huert cuz the wrong image of who are the real celebrities is not shown .its more like a show to discover celebrities dan acknowledging those alraedy made .the fact remains dat 60 percent of nigerian made celebs are known in Africa but not up to 20 percent of those SA strs are known all hurts even me watching from Cameroon.

    But they already “premiered” this show na!!! I watched what was supposedly the first episode which featured SA’s Caper and Boity. or is there another “Africa”?? In any case, I think these syndicated networks need to start developing original content for their viewers in the respective countries/continents they are in, not copying whats done on their American networks.

    The ist episode of this lip sync battle Africa was a huge disappointment for me. the host, the SA lady was so bland, for lack of a better word. I think D banj would have made a better host. I actually thought they were going to lip sync African songs. To my disappointment, they copied the Americans to the end. Don’t think i will be turning in again,I know nobody cares. hehhehehe
