After months of excitement knowing that our guy Trevor Noah would be back on home soil to host the MAMAs‚ the comedian announced he pulled out of the show because of a severe infection.
Trevor took to his Twitter account to detail what has happened. He explained that he had been fighting an upper respiratory and ear infection for the whole week and medication had not helped.
“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.”
Trevor has been one of the major attractions for the show and there has been no word from MTV on who would replace him at the last minute.
The funnyman went on to add he was very disappointed.
“I love the MAMAs and more importantly I love performing in my country. Unfortunately there comes a day like today when it all catches up and my body cannot do what my mind wishes it could.”
MTV announced on Friday morning that Bonang Matheba would be hosting the MAMAs after Trevor Noah had to cancel his appearance.
Bonang has confirmed the news‚ taking to her Twitter account to retweet messages of support.
MTV has moved to assure fans that while its disappointed that Trevor will not make it‚ the show will go on.
