“It” girls Jessica Nkosi and Nandi Madida are the next screen queens to face off in Lip Sync Battle Africa this coming Thursday (MTV Base, DStv channel 322, 18 May 2017 @ 21:30 CAT).
While BET A-List host Nandi may have years of experience on stage, thanks to her thriving musical career, it’s clear that she will have tough competition from Isibaya soap queen Jessica, who’s showcased her dancing skills in numerous Instagram dance challenges.
Cheered on by the electrifying energy of host Pearl Thusi and “colour commentator” Denrele Edun, the two red carpet darlings will pull out all the stops in this no holds barred seventh episode of Lip Sync Battle Africa. The two beauties will stop at nothing when it comes to winning the winner’s belt: Jessica gets all dressed up in a giant ballgown to belt out a big ballad by British superstar Adele, while Nandi channels Pharrell in an upbeat rendition of “Happy”, and even enlists her own husband’s huge hit “Clap Your Hands” to get the audience on her side.
Commented Nandi, “I am so thrilled I got the opportunity to be on the new season Lip Sync Battle Africa – I haven’t had so much fun in ages. I was surprised how competitive I got, but I absolutely loved working with Jessica, Pearl and Denrele, and it was a real blast to be part of this phenomenal show.”
Added Jessica, “Growing up we all did some lip syncing privately in our rooms when no one was watching and to finally be able to do it on a stage with an audience was amazing. I felt like I was the actual performer of the songs I was performing. I don’t think people have seen me get loose like I did during my performances – usually because of the character I play they expect me to be a certain way, but in Lip Sync Battle they will definitely see another side of me.”
Will Nandi’s singing experience topple Jessica’s acting skills on #LSBAfrica stage? And which “It” girl will raise their levels and raise the #LSBAfrica trophy? Find out on Lip Sync Battle Africa on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) on Thursday 18 May 2017 at 21:30 CAT.
