Trevor Noah hilarious at Oscars with fake Xhosa words

01 March 2019
The South African-born comedian, Trevor Noah 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 Show host was totally fooling his American audience.
What Trevor actually said is: "White people don't know I'm lying."
