DRUM recently interviewed Lip Sync Battle Africa hosts Pearl Thusi and D'Banj and they had nothing but great things to say about the show and each other, including D'Banj saying Pearl is the ideal woman.
Here's what they had to say;
So what do you find most interesting about the show?
D'Banj: The hosts! Look at Pearl, she's very hot! The crowd, their very energetic through out, and then more importantly, the guests coming in. Unlike any other show you've seen or any other show you've watched, you will not see this kind of guests, these are celebrities from different paths of Africa.
Pearl: We have real superstars on this show. Not just celebrities, because anyone can be a 'celebrity' these days, we have superstars.
Why should people watch this show?
Pearl: We keep saying this because we think people need to understand; there's no show or rather there's never really been a show that's combined all of Africa and put them into one show.
D'Banj: This show unites Africa and helps to show African superstars do something most of us have never seen them do.
Pearl: The show is also entertaining and spicy, that's also another reason to watch it.
So if you were to lip-sync a song what would you guys do?
Pearl: That's simple, I would do D'Banj's Oliver Twist and Emergency.
D'Banj: I would battle Pearl and sing Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On and Emcee's Pearl Thusi.
What would people be surprised to know about D'Banj:
Pearl: He is a really funny person, if he went into comedy he would make it. He is very talented and genuine.
D'Banj: When you see a very beautiful woman like Pearl, you wouldn't think she is a dedicated and kind person, that's what surprised me about her. She is the typical example of what they mean when they say an 'ideal woman'.
Pearl: Oh sweet, thank you D'Banj.
