Television presenter, Denrele Edun, will replace singer Dapo ‘D’banj’ Oyebanjo on the second season of Lip Sync Battle Africa.


The pop culture/entertainment show will return for its second season on MTV Base in April.

Denrele will co-host the show with South African actress, presenter and model, Pearl Thusi.

The flamboyant and eccentric celebrity gained national prominence during his stints with Soundcity and Channel O Africa.


Denrele was a contestant on Lip Sync Battle Africa in season one, where he battled against Big Brother Naija presenter, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.

“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 1 who flew in last minute and “spiritually” won his LSB challenge, and now I’ve been elevated to co-host,” said the television personality.


Monde Twala, vice president, BET youth & music, Viacom, said the show will benefit from the “extraordinary energy” of Denrele.

“Pearl and Denrele are going to make an awesome team. Pearl’s star quality is unmistakeable and she is a consummate professional, while Denrele’s a true original – bold, exciting and just on the right side of crazy! His extraordinary energy and total unpredictability should be a fascinating and explosive addition to season 2 of Lip Sync Battle Africa,” Tawla said.
