Trevor Hosts the Global Citizen Festival to Honor Nelson Mandela’s 100th Birthday | The Daily Show


NOAH: You know, every time
I come back to Soweto, I’m reminded again… why this place is so special. It’s a melting pot of ideas. It was the… the home
of the political movement, it was the home
of the freedom fighters, the food, the music,
the people, the cultures. It was a place that was created
in an attempt to oppress black people in South Africa. And, in a way, the apartheid
government ended up creating what would go on to define
South Africa in its freedom. (people speaking
foreign language) NOAH:
So, this right here, this is one
of my favorite meals ever. This is what we call a quarter
in South Africa. It’s a quarter loaf of bread with… chips, and then we have an egg,
baloney, a frankfurter, and we have cheese. Not approved by Weight Watchers. -(speaks foreign language)
-One-twenty. -One-twenty?
-Yeah. (speaking foreign language) One-twenty. (speaking indistinctly) The best thing about buying food
in South Africa is you get to negotiate
the price. So imagine if you could go
to McDonald’s and be like, “Yo, I’ll give you
two dollars for that.” Oh… yeah! Oh… yeah! So, this was fun. ♪ ♪ So, uh, we’re off
to Global Citizen now. Gonna get ready for the show. I wonder if Beyoncé needs me
to do backup. NEWSWOMAN:
Tens of thousands of fans packed a stadium
in Johannesburg… NEWSMAN:
The Global Citizen Festival… NEWSWOMAN:
…hosted by Trevor Noah… NEWSMAN: …to raise awareness
about poverty, while also honoring
South Africa’s antiapartheid icon. STADIUM ANNOUNCER:
Please welcome your host for the Global Citizen Festival
Mandela 100, Trevor Noah! (cheering) What’s going on…
(speaks foreign language)! (cheering) Oh, man, I’m so humbled, guys,
I’m so humbled. Thank you so much
for coming out. You know,
in one of his final speeches, Madiba said that… (like Mandela):
“Like slavery and apartheid, “poverty is not natural. “It is man-made
and it can be overcome and eradicated
by the actions of human beings.” (cheering) It’s in all of us…
(speaks foreign language) When it comes
to natural resources, Africa is the richest place
on Earth. We’ve got gold, we’ve got oil, we’ve got diamonds, and the one thing
we definitely have more than any other place
in the world -is ass.
-(cheering) We have more booty
than any other continent on the planet. Men and women. Look at this one.
Look at this one right here. -Look at this.
-(cheering) ♪ ♪ I just want to say thank you for everything
you’ve given me, guys. -(cheering)
-I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world. I wouldn’t want to go
into the world without being
on your guys’ shoulders. Thank you
for what you’ve given me. I love you guys… (speaking foreign language) We’re always coming back, baby. This is us. (cheering)

    Trevor, I believe you’re a really nice guy deep down inside but your job makes you race bait, which subsequently and indirectly divides us as people. I hope one day you choose a profession that brings people together rather than upset with each other.

    every country has suffered some form of tragedy that have left an indelible pain on their psychi. The first step to freedom is pain acknowledgement and striving to live above that pain. In Poland, for a long time, they hated Germans and some even still do. But many have moved on to accept the present than living in and with the past. I heard of the stories because I was old by then. Let us focus forward to make a difference.

    @Trevor Noah, you are among the few people I want to meet in my lifetime and I pray this become possible and dream to live it out.

    Jon Stewart knew what he was doing when he chose Trevor as the host. Trevor is like a South African Steve Rogers.

Down to earth, and always friendly, smart and thinking and looking into stuff out of the box. You are an amazing man. Keep on doing what you are doing! Greetings from The Netherlands

    I know why he's a huge inspiration, it's because Trevor Noah has genuine love for humanity. He reminds me of myself.

    Ask Trevor to speak up for this elephant, a helpless captive in Johannesbug – she's totally isolated, without shade or a place to bathe. He knows what it is to be oppressed by selfish humans who believe themselves to be a superior order of being. https://www.e-activist.com/page/message?mid=f392c8fb375d4632a97b57741adbf94d

    I've always enjoyed and respected Noah as a comedic artist, but this made me respect him as a person and a humanitarian; yes, a Citizen of the World! We should all aspire to follow in his example. You have to respect a man who respects his roots.!

    Quite interesting that Trevor actually said it- that Africa is the richest continent. Yet just look at the ratio between the rich and the poor there. The natives have allowed outsiders to come and harness all that wealth while enslaving them. Come on now my people, we as a race have to stand united and reclaim what's legally ours. The Europeans have enriched themselves from all those resources and now the Chinese are doing the same. When are we going to stand up united and fight for what is ours and capitalise on it. Sad to say, if we remain in this state there will only be more events like this one with no substantial meaning behind it and we remaining at the mercy of our oppressors.

    Africa is a wonderful place, it's sad how none of the Africans countries could successfully escape the giant wealth gap- they should learn from Koreans and Singaporeans. One African, you got a determined person, two Africans- you got an NGO, three Africans, you got a corrupt country. Just sad! China will buy them soon- 20 cents on a dollar.
