Trevor Noah pulls out of MAMAs, Bonang Matheba to replace him
Local TV presenter and radio host Bonang Matheba will be the host of the much anticipated MAMAs, after Trevor Noah pulled out as the host of the MAMAs 2016.
On Friday morning, we learned that Trevor Noah had to cancel his hosting gig at the MAMAs because of sickness.
“Due to the infection and strain on my vocal chords the doctor has ordered me to rest. I desperately wish I could dismiss the doctor but the added risk of flying means the decision would be highly irresponsible and may cause further damage.”
The news is of course massive, and Twitter has been LIT since people learned that Trevor Noah won’t be hosting the show, and that Bonang will be his replacement.
The MAMAs 2016 are taking place tomorrow at The Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg.
Bonang confirmed that she will be filling in for Trevor Noah on Twitter:
