Bonang Matheba to host MAMAs instead of Trevor Noah
Trevor Noah was scheduled to host the 2017 MAMAs but had to withdraw because of respiratory and ear infection.
Timeslive.co.za reports that Trevor said, “Due to the infection and strain on my vocal chords and 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.”
He will therefore be replaced by Bonang Matheba.
Bonang took to her Twitter page to confirm this by tweeting, “….Feels a bit UNREAL!! Thank you @MTVBaseAfrica for trusting ME!! Here we go…. 24 hours to prep!!”

MzVee, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie and R2Bees have all been nominated.
