Trevor Noah Fools Oscar Audience With Fake Xhosa Translation

Trevor Noah speaks onstage during the 91st Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on February 24, 2019 in Hollywood, California.
Trevor Noah fools the Oscars audience with a fake Xhosa translation which leaves South Africa in stitches.

Trevor Noah took to the Oscars 2019 stage to present one of the Best Picture nominees, Black Panther on Sunday night.

The South African-born comedian joked about people continuously greeting him with “Wakanda Forever” as well as about the fact that people think it is a real place.

What stood out most however, is when Trevor spoke some Xhosa on stage.

“‘Abelungu abazi ubu ndiyaxoka’- which means, ‘In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart,'” Trevor told the audience.

However, Twitter users familiar with the language were quick to point out that the The Daily Showhost was totally fooling his American audience.

What Trevor actually said is: “White people don’t know I’m lying.”
