Trevor Noah opens up on Real Talk

Host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah has opened up to Anele on her SABC talk show, Real Talk. 


The comedian, turned international star, said that growing up he was always the outsider and didn't feel like he belonged.

"I was always bullied for being Xhosa but looking like a coloured," Trevor said.

He added that he was often asked why he had a funny accent as he was raised Xhosa.

"I went to a private school but couldn't afford to spend time with my friends and they would often ask why I couldn't go the mall with them," he added.

When it comes to dreams and aspirations, Trevor says the more money you make, the more you want to make.

"When you are poor and you make a lot of money, you are scared to lose it all and thus you never say no when people want to pay you to do something," Trevor said.

Last month South Africans lashed out at Trevor for cancelling his appearance at the MTV African Music Awards to illness, but it seems Mzansi has forgiven our golden boy after his heartfelt talk with the show's host.
