Quantico actress Pearl Thusi is set to reprise her role as host of Lip Sync Battle Africa when it returns for its much-anticipated second season in April.

Set to premiere on MTV Base on Thursday 6 April, Thusi’s season one side-kick D’banj is confirmed not to return alongside her.

Thusi is getting a brand new flamboyant co-host.

Renowned Nigerian TV personality Denrele will serve as the show’s new ‘colour commentator’.

Denrele was a contestant on Lip Sync Battle Africa in Season 1, where he battled against fellow TV personality Ebuka.

""Co-hosting Lip Sync Battle Africa is truly the answer to a prayer I never made! The universe truly opened a door, and I’m gonna make sure I jump right inside and DO IT!  It’s quite surreal,” Denrele excitedly expressed in a statement.

“I was a contestant in Series 1 who flew in last minute and "spiritually" won his LSB challenge, and now I've been elevated to co-host!  Try not to watch me, I dare you!!!!”
