There was a case of theft at the Grammys for Mzansi superstar Trevor Noah. 

It's not what you think, though.

John Legend was the mastermind behind this manoeuvre. He posted a video about the scenario, but his wife, Chrissy Teigen, was shocked at what was happening.

Check out the video that leaked here:

*Language warning

For South Africans, the heart palpitations you feel when someone steals your phone is a common and unsetting feeling. We can only imagine the sudden shock Trevor felt when this friend-cident occurred. 

But when it's John Legend having a peek at your cell, you can't help but feel honoured.
