What a test Bonang Matheba has just 24 hours to prepare as the new host of the 2016 #MAMAs. Talk about unexpected. The original host, Trevor Noah, has an upper respiratory and ear infection and sadly had to pull out but we are sure @bonang_m was born ready for this!

“I love the Mama’s and more importantly I love performing in my country,” he said. “I’m so sorry if I’ve disappointed you but please know that I love performing more than anything in life and so having to cancel any show, breaks my heart,” Noah continued.

The awards are set to take place in a 2-hour telecast at the Dome in, Randburg, Johannesburg on Saturday, 22 October.

Go girl, Show them you are capable
