The host of "The Daily Show" and comedian, Trevor Noah, keeps piling up the accolades and South Africans could not be more proud.

Noah's show bagged the Emmy for Best Short-Form Variety Series for the YouYube series, "The Daily Show: Between the Scenes" on 9 September in Los Angeles in the U.S.

The South Africa-born personality was not present to accept his award as he was performing in Washington, DC, but he took to Twitter on Sunday to share his gratitude.

South Africans congratulated the 33-year-old on his latest achievement.

Noah is no stranger to international accolades -- in May he took home the MTV Award for best host for his work on "The Daily Show". He joined the show in September 2015 after taking over the reigns from Jon Stewart.

Congratulations, Trevor, keep making the country proud!
