South African-born Comedian Trevor Noah used his win at the prestigious MTV Movie and TV Awards to appreciate the role played by his mother (for bringing him up)… and Donald Trump.

Noah was awarded the Best TV Host at the first ever MTV Movie and TV Awards, held in Los Angeles on the 7th May 2017.

Noah took to the stage to accept the award and dedicated the historic win to his (South African)mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah.

“She is a powerful, strong black woman who didn’t listen when they told her she couldn’t be more,” he said in his acceptance speech.

Thank you to Donald J. Trump for the comedy. The J stands for Jesus, a lot of people don’t know that, “he said. Noah also acknowledged (the J-which stands for) Jesus for the award.

His win was not only for his local fans and celebs but for the South Africans as a whole. Noah’s win is also a positive representation of the country on the international map.
