Trevor Noah just hilariously quoted “growing up as young boy in Wakanda” while presenting an Oscar!
Kodak Theatre, Hollywood – Trevor Noah took to the stage at the 2019 Oscars to present the Best Picture nominee with a “powerful speech” but he left South Africans in stitches while “trolling” Americans.
Before presenting Black Panther, Noah chatted about the fact that people from around the world constantly walk up to him and say ‘Wakanda Forever’ because he comes from Africa.
He then quoted a Xhosa phrase which got a standing ovation. It sounded heartfelt and special and the crowd celebrated with applause… People Magazine even put up an article immediately about his “powerful speech” but South Africans can’t stop laughing.
“Growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, I would see T’Challa flying over our village, and he would remind me of a great Xhosa phrase. He says ‘abelungu abazi ubu ndiyaxoka’ – which means ‘In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart.”
The real translation is “white people don’t know I’m lying…” which is so funny because Noah did it with such a straight face!
