Pearl Thusi is coming home

She comes home all the time so you're probably wondering "what's the big deal?"

Well, Thusi will be headed home to film episodes for Lip Sync Battle Africa season 2 after a successful first season hosted by the gorgeous media personality last year.

No word as to which stars we can expect to see competing this upcoming season but we do know that the Koko Master, D'Banj will not be returning as colour commentator. 

Thusi will instead be joined by the ever-so-colourful Nigerian personality Denrele Edun who - according to People Magazine - has a wide knowledge of pop culture and has interviewed greats such as  Akon, Beyoncé , Tyler Perry, Lil’ Kim, Snoop Dogg, and many more.

Denrele, who competed on the first season of LSB Africa, is quite a big deal in Nigeria and seeks to expand his fan-base with this opportunity.

“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 – I was a contestant in Series one 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!” he said in a statement.
