Hold up South Africa! Trevor Noah is being prima donna on us, there are sad news that The Daily Show host is having health issues. Noah issued a press statement stating that he is battling with severe respiratory and ear infection.
Now let’s look at the good side of this matter, with amazing news that “Queen B” famously known as Bonang Matheba has less than 24 hours to fill the shoes the comedian’s shoes as a host.
The music channel announced on their social media platforms that they have no doubt that Queen B will be killing the ceremony. I have no doubt that Queen B will be slaying during the award ceremony taking place tomorrow at TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg.
Below is the full statement from The Daily Show host:
To all my fans and everyone who makes what I do possible
I’ve been fighting a severe upper respiratory and ear infection this week and despite tons of medication the infection has gotten the better of me.
Due to the infection and strain on my vocal chords the doctor has ordered me to rest my voice and recover my health. I desperately wish I could dismiss the doctor but the added risk of flying means that decision would be highly irresponsible and may cause further damage.
I love the Mama’s and more importantly I love performing in my country. Myself and MTV Africa have been trying to make the Mamas a reality for a few years and I was so excited because this was finally the year where the pieces fell into place and the date was one I could do.
I push myself as hard as I can all the time because I appreciate every opportunity I am afforded in life. Unfortunately there comes a day like today when it all catches up and my body cannot do what my mind wishes I could.
I’m so sorry if I’ve disappointed you but please know that I love performing more than anything in life and so having to cancel any show, breaks my heart.
Sorry isn’t enough of a word to convey how I feel and again to all my fans I will do my utmost to make it up to you.
Good luck to all the superstars nominated in their respective categories!
