If you are not in the 5% of Ugandans on Twitter, then you probably missed it. Trevor Noah, the famous South African comedian and host to the American “Daily Show” publicly rejected us on social media.
Excited tweeps were getting chatty about Trevor Noah coming to Uganda after an article by Matooke Republic yesterday. He immediately shut it down as false sparking off a very hilarious yet equally amazing campaign with the tag, “#TrevorNoahVisitsUganda”.
This is a scam, I’m not coming to Uganda. https://t.co/fAh8EUdtO7

Many Ugandans on Twitter went ahead to woo Trevor with sexy incentives such as a mouth watering rolex on the house, the amazing pictures of sunsets, scenery, animals, game parks, taxis and so much more.

No kidding, even companies like Nice House of Plastics, tour and travel agents and Jesa are using this opportunity to slide in some of their ad pitches.
We know he is seeing all these tweets because he is very active on social media, many high profile people are in on it, its hilarious, hot and its been trending since yesterday. He has been very silent and the right question is, will he respond or just wait till the Daily Show?
Check out some of our favourite tweets from the trend:
