Looking dapper on the cover of GQ magazine
It was a moment of pride for fans of Trevor Noah when he made it to the cover of GQ magazine. The comedian had this to say on Instagram:
The worst thing about being on the cover of GQ is they can make you look so good people in real life are like... “Damn Trev, what happened?”
The best part is... SHARING THIS HONOUR WITH GEORGE CLOONEY & MEGAN THEE STALLION! Thank you
Trevor Noah’s thoughts on Covid-19
Trevor Noah has been very vocal on the issue of the Covid-19 pandemic and has very often taken to social media to highlight the issues and concerns and even share some light moments.
When Newsweek tweeted ‘COVID lockdowns have no clear benefit vs other voluntary measures, international study shows,’ Trevor had this to say:
"We all agree that these lockdowns are horrible and we want them to end now and we can almost all agree that many governments haven’t handled this pandemic well. But let’s not act like this thing is just black and white."
Trevor Noah buys a swanky mansion in Bel-Air
Comedian and television host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah has recently purchased a breath-taking mansion in Bel-Air that costs a whopping $27.5 million, which is roughly R412 million.
Ntsiki Mazwai, instead of congratulating Noah on the purchase, made it all about herself by supposing what she would do if she had as much money as Noah. Tweeps were not impressed by this pathetic show of jealousy. She further humiliated herself in the same tweet by saying that Noah does not have a family big enough to justify the purchase of that mansion.
