Congratulations are in order for the multi-talented Pearl Thusi and Nigerian superstar D’Banj who were announced as the presenters of Lip Sync Battle Africa – a localised format of the hugely popular American show.

The irony of the two working together could not be ignored, though. Just a few weeks ago, Pearl, together with her Metro FM co-host Phat Joe, was suspended by the radio station.

According to reports, the hosts of the Saturday morning show The Real Phat Joe Show were suspended over continuous comments made during their broadcasts about fellow colleague and Pearl’s rumoured arch-rival, Bonang Matheba.

To say Pearl isn’t a fan of Queen B’s would be an understatement, and she doesn’t hide it.

D’Banj is said to not be on good terms with Bonang either, amid claims of her cheating on him with AKA last year.

The one thing that can’t be ignored, though, is that Pearl and D’Banj have great on-screen chemistry.

Catch Lip Sync Battle Africa on MTV channel 130 on Thursdays from 14 April at 8.50 pm, as well as MTV Base channel 322 on Saturdays from 16 April at 6.30 pm and e.tv on Saturdays from 23 April at 6.30 pm.
