Last week former American president Barack Obama graced South Africans with his presence when he led the 16th Annual Nelson Mandela Lecture in honour of Mabida’s 100th birthday.
However, while South Africans felt honoured by his presence, the SA head of state took the time to roast Obama’s dance moves.
With Obama sitting only a few feet away from him, Cyril Ramaphosa told the attendees the former US president was not as good as Madiba in one area- he did not have Mandela’s dance moves.
Briefly.co.za learned this led to South African comedian Trevor Noah talking about Ramaphosa’s comment on The Daily Show, and his comments got a few laughs from his audience.
“Obama busts moves in Kenya and gets no love from African leaders,” the video of Noah’s reaction was captioned on The Daily Show’s official Twitter page.
The video of Noah’s hilarious response to Ramaphosa’s lowkey roast sparked a reaction from his Twitter followers.
Social media user @King73309846 wrote other world leader, including Ramaphosa, felt threatened by Obama and that’s why they throw shade at him.
“Blv me Obama has proven to b a strongest, friendly, unifying leader worldwide. As the result other leaders feel uncomfortable, uncommon,” @King73309846 commented.
