Ghollywood and Nollywood are famous for awesome collaborations, but this week, they will be going head to head as Ghollywood vs Nollywood in what is already promising to be a heady episode of the lip sync battle Africa.
Ghollywood vs Nollywood has two worthy representatives, with Ghollywood star Joselyn Dumas going up against Nollywood’s Funke Akindele to battle it out on this week’s episode of Lip Sync Battle Africa, MTV Base’s lip syncing competition.
The two popular actresses in every right will lip sync to two songs each that they will choose and at the end, one of them will be crowned the winner of the battle.
Comedy genius, funke Akindele has already prepped us up to anticipate an appearance from her other personality ‘Jenifa’. She said, “I’m sure people will be expecting to see a lot of ‘Jenifa’ inspired dance moves, but I have a lot more in store for my fans. I’m going to have fun bringing some real Nigerian flavour to the stage, and showing Joselyn Dumas that Nigerians are not just better at Jollof.”
In response Joselyn Dumas said; “I was highly elated; when I found out I was going to be on Lip Sync Battle Africa and going up against Funke Akindele has proven to be exciting and scary at the same time. We all know how energetic Funke can be.”
Lip Sync Battle Africa is the African version of MTV’s Lip Sync Battle. It is hosted by South African actress and TV presenter Pearl Thusi, alongside Nigerian superstar musician, D’Banj and airs weekly on MTV Base. The Joselyn Dumas/Funke Akindele duel will be airing on Saturday, May 28 by 6pm.
