While accepting the speech he shared the African philosophy about humanity. According to his words, the philosophy called “Ubuntu” was about the idea that humanity is based not on a singular concept but instead a “plural” one. He further explained the idea was basically, “I am because we are”. And taking that, he wrapped up the speech by thanking everyone with,” I am because you are”.
It was so beautifully done that fans flooded social media with praises for the Mission: Impossible actor. One fan tweeted back at the speech,
He's so emotional and you can see how he really means it. That's just the perfect way to end his phenomenal speech
