The first episode of SA’s own version of Lip Sync Battle will see Boity Thulo take on her ex, Cassper Nyovest. As in the international version of the show, contestants will be expected to lip sync to two songs, and the winner will be chosen by the live studio audience.

While he says he has no idea why broadcaster MTV Base chose him for the first episode, he’s happy about it. “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.” Boity, on the other hand, is super confident. "I dont even gotta say much," the local beauty said on an Instagram clip to promote the show. "All you gotta know is – I'm winning this! Boom."

TV personality Boity and the rapper were high school sweethearts who rekindled their romance last year. In happier times, the duo shared plenty of loved-up posts on social media, including snaps of their exotic ‘baecation’ in November 2015 -- although this was said to be a last-ditch attempt to salvage their romance.

"We broke up in December and I cried about it," the Rockville actress revealed last month in an emotional video for TimesLive. "I got angry about it, I tried to convince myself that it’s okay then eventually you are just like life actually continues."

In a later interview with magazine True Love, Boity also revealed that the rapper was too busy to make time for their relationship so they decided to call it quits.

Will Boity get her own back as she takes on her former flame on stage? Catch it tonight at 8.50pm on MTV (Channel 130 Dstv) and MTV Base (Channel 322 on Dstv).
