Trevor Noah has made it in Hollywood but that doesn't mean he forgot his friends back home. The South African comedian hosted the Grammy Awards recently and he sent a shoutout to Anele Mdoda.
Moments after Beyoncé made history by becoming the female artist with the most Grammy wins, Noah mentioned Anele.
"Give it up for Beyonce. This is history. She did it Aneeeezy!"
Aneezy is Noah's nickname for Anele. The 947 Breakfast host made sure that those who missed the shoutout relived in. She posted a clip on her Twitter account and wrote:
"Also did you okes hear Trevor shout me out at the Grammys after Beyoncé’s speech?"
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans reacted to Noah's shoutout with some celebrating with Anele while other said it wasn't a big deal.
@UnathiBobo27 freaked out over the moment, saying:
"Ndimvile mntase kubreakfast show, I was jogging and screaming at the same time fellow joggers thought I was losing my mind."
Noah hosted the 63rd annual Grammy Awards held on Sunday, 14 March. This was the first time that the host of The Daily Show took on the role of presenting the world’s most prestigious music event. His debut was a big success, if reactions online are anything to go by.
During his monologue, Noah cracked a few jokes and concluded by saying:
“Tonight, we’re hoping that this is all about what 2021 can be, full of joy, new beginnings and coming together — never forgetting what happened in 2020, but full of hope for what is to come.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported Beyoncé made history at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards.
The US superstar broke the record for all-time wins by a woman and any singer (male or female) with 28 Grammy Awards when she bagged the best R&B performance for Black Parade. The talented singer also took home the Best Music Video award for her smash track Brown Skin Girl.
Just like mummy, Queen of Pop Beyoncè’s daughter Blue Ivy is following her footsteps and slowly embracing greatness at her young age. The nine-year-old, who made her musical debut in her mother’s video, has bagged her first Grammy Award.
