Cape Town - Results from a poll were released recently, which found that South Africa has the second sexiest accent in the world but comedian Trevor Noah is doubtful.

Travel website Big 7 Travel created the poll for its 1.5 million readers to determine which accents they thought were the most attractive.

In a segment during the Daily Show, Trevor spoke about the study which named the New Zealand as the number 1 sexiest accent.

He, like most people, explained why he did not agree with the study before hilariously imitating each language.

“First of all, I love New Zealand, great country, beautiful people but the accent is not sexy,” Trevor said before imitating the accent.

He then moved on to the Australian accent, which came out fifth on the list, before commenting on the South African accent. He points out that South Africa has many accents, so it is hard to tell exactly which one the study found to be sexy.  In true Trevor style, he begins to imitate Nelson Mandela’s voice before concluding that the accent is, in fact, kind of sexy.
