Legendary Nigerian comedian Basketmouth has been revealed as the host of THE BIG FRIDAY SHOW - the edgy new Friday night music and entertainment show from MTV Networks Africa and STV.

Airing every Friday night from 5 August, THE BIG FRIDAY SHOW brings fireworks, fun and Nigerian youth culture to Friday night TV. Among the regular slots featured on the show will be: interviews with the hottest Nigerian celebrities; entertainment news and gossip from the digital sphere in C-VON's and Bella Naija's V-Log of the week; a club review highlighting the best places to party when the weekend lands, and a weekly restaurant challenge where Lagos' top chefs create "THE BIG FRIDAY SHOW SPECIAL” for their menu.

As you would expect from a funnyman of Basketmouth's stature, comedy will be a key component of the show – with side-splitting pranks, spoofs and zany skits bringing laughs aplenty to Friday night viewing. Episode one will see 2Face's seminal track 'African Queen' given a makeover as 'African Weave' – a humourous homage to fake hair - while Wiz Kid was the first celebrity on the receiving end of one of THE BIG FRIDAY SHOW's soon-to be-legendary pranks!
