Ghollywood star Joselyn Dumas and Nollywood’s Funke Akindele will battle it out on this week’s episode of Lip Sync Battle Africa, MTV Base’s lip syncing competition. The two actresses will lip sync to two songs they choose and one of them will be crowned the winner of the battle.
Funke Akindele told people to expect an appearance from her other personality ‘Jenifa’. She said, “I’m sure people will be expecting to see a lot of ‘Jenifa’ inspired dance moves, but I have a lot more in store for my fans. I’m going to have fun bringing some real Nigerian flavour to the stage, and showing Joselyn Dumas that Nigerians are not just better at Jollof.”
Joselyn Dumas expressed her excitement about the pairing saying, “I was highly elated; when I found out I was going to be on Lip Sync Battle Africa and going up against Funke Akindele has proven to be exciting and scary at the same time. We all know how energetic Funke can be.”
Lip Sync Battle Africa is the African version of MTV’s Lip Sync Battle. It is hosted by South African actress and TV presenter Pearl Thusi, alongside Nigerian superstar, D’Banj and airs on MTV Base. The Funke/Joselyn duel will be airing on Saturday, May 28 by 6pm.
