They’ll be joined by deejays Neptune, Champaign and Xclusive.

Adding to the excitement of the big night, AfricaMagic has confirmed that it will be screening a special edition of its celeb news show StarGist, which will be screened LIVE on DStv channel 197 at 19:30 CAT, 30 minutes before the Finale kicks off at 20:00 CAT, LIVE on DStv channel 198 and AfricaMagicEntertainment (DStv channel 128).

The StarGist show will be presented by co-hosts Vimbai Mutinhiri (Zimbabwe) and Lawrence Maleka (SA), who will be interviewing former StarGame housemates, fans and business executives such as M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi and Olufemi Ashipa (Brand Manager Colas: Coca Cola Nigeria).

StarGist will also interview organizers from the ONE CAMPAIGN, whose focus on sustainable agriculture became a highlight in this year’s house and saw star 2Face Idibia visit the house while Mary J. Blige and Bono sent video messages to housemates. And you can expect to see some of the night’s performers speak with StarGist on the red carpet, in the run-up to their performances later in the evening.
