#MTVMAMA2016: Bonang Matheba to Replace Trevor Noah as Host after he Canceled due to a Respiratory and Ear Infection




MTV Base has announced that South African Media Personality and Entrepreneur Bonang Matheba will be hosting the 2016 MAMAs after ‘The Daily Show’ Trevor Noah canceled his appearance due to his Respiratory and ear infection.

He tweeted the news this morning saying:

“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.”

    Noooo. I was looking forward to watching the show with Trevor on.
    Recently caught up with some of his standups and loved it.
    Oh well. Congrats Bonang.
    This is why you should pray against arrows from your village. The show is just tomorrow, and now this

    This could be the driest MAMA. They would have used Basketmouth since he was part of those they were considering initially.
