It’s no secret that South African comedian Trevor Noah is doing big things in the US as the presenter of The Daily Show, but when pictures and videos of him “sharing a stage” with Beyoncé circulated on social media, people could barely cope with the realisation of how “great” he’d become.
Earlier this week, Noah took to the stage at the Sports Illustrated 2017 to present the SI Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
While on stage, he called on Mrs Carter, who was making a surprise appearance, to hand over the award.

While some thought the highlight was a big feat for Soweto-born Noah, many argued that it was Bey’s moment as she got to share a stage with Mzansi’s greatest.
Here are some of the reactions.
