We had been so damn excited about our boy, Trevor Noah, returning to home soil to host one of the continent’s biggest award shows and now it’s not going to happen 🙁.
He broke the news in a tweet stating that he’ll be missing the event due to a severe infection.

She who reigns supreme, Bonang Matheba, stepped in to save the day though and will now serve as the day’s hostess. She hosted the Metro FM Music Awards earlier this year, alongside Mo Flava, so this should be a breeze for her. I certainly can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing.
