Trevor Noah won’t be able to make it to the MAMAs #MTVBaseAfrica #MTVMAMA2016


I was looking forward seeing Trevor Noah at the MAMAs, but however he won’t be able to make it due to severe upper respiratory and ear infection. He released a statement on his official social networks explaining the situation.

“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.”

Trevor was looking forward to performing at home but unfortunately he cannot fly home to do what he does best.

“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.”

Trevor said he has been looking forward to this time and he and MTV Africa have had talks about making it a reality, as excited as he was when this finally fell in into place – his health fell out of place.

“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.” Says Trevor

“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.” He added

Trevor is deeply sorry for cancelling, he says it breaks his heart to cancel any of his shows – and promises to make it up to his fans.

We wish you a speedy recovery Trevor.
