Stand-up comic and host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Trevor Noah has pulled out as host of the sixth edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) due to a severe upper respiratory and ear infection.
A day before the awards ceremony is set to take place in a 2-hour telecast at the Dome in Johannesburg MTV announced that Bonang Matheba will replace Noah as host of the MAMAs.
Trevor took to his Twitter account to detail what has happened. He explained that he has been fighting an upper respiratory and ear infection for the whole week and medication hasn’t helped.
