    Trevor Noah may have got applause from the audience at the Oscars on Sunday night for his speech about Wakanda, but local fans were crying with laughter at the shade the comedian was actually throwing in a Xhosa-infused joke. Trevor Noah got personal in introducing Best Picture nominee Black Panther at the 2019 Oscars on Sunday.

    Noah walked on the stage to present Best Picture nominee Black Panther, where he highlighted the movie’s appeal. In his speech he said:

    Black Panther may be an African hero, but his story and his appeal are universal,” Noah said. “I know this personally because of all the people who constantly come up to me and say ‘Wakanda Forever.’ “

    “Growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, I’d see King T’Challa flying over our village and he would remind me of a great isiXhosa phrase, ‘Abelungu abayazi uk’ba ndiyaxoka’ which means ‘In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart,’ ” he said, before introducing clips from the movie.
