Former couples, Cassper Nyovest and Boity Thulo the first celebrities to battle it out during the premiere of Lip Sync Battle Africa on Thursday, April 14.
Club 808 presenter Boity confirmed the break-up with the multi-award winning rapper Casper during the interview with Bona Magazine (April Issue).
Commented Cassper, “I plan on having a lot of fun on Lip Sync Battle Africa. Fans can expect to see me being less serious than I’d usually be, and just truly and honestly having fun – while still delivering a good show. I honestly have no idea why MTV chose to put me in the first episode, but I’m glad because then I don’t have the pressure to follow on someone else’s performance, I get to set the bar which is cool!”
Added Boity, “Lip Sync Battle Africa takes me completely out of my element, but I’m genuinely having the time of my life. Expect to see a side of me that you have never seen before. I had no idea that the ability to freely make a fool of yourself would be so much fun! I’m really looking forward to seeing the show myself. All I know is that I had a fantastic time and I would love the opportunity to come back and do it all over again!”
The show is hosted by Pearl Thusi with commentary from Nigerian singer-songwriter, D’Banj.
Be sure to tune in to Lip Sync Battle Africa @ 20;50 every Thursday from 14 April on MTV (DStv channel 130)
