South African brewed talent, Trevor Noah is a very happy man right now. His move to the United States of America in the year 2015 has proven to be a lucrative one.

The Grammy's list is out and our very own Trevor has clinched a nomination on the much-coveted awards show.

Trevor's body of work on 'Son of Patricia' on Netflix has earned him a nomination in the Best Comedy Album category. This category is for albums containing at least 51% playing time of new recordings.

Below is the list of all the nominated comedians in the category:

QUALITY TIME: Jim Gaffigan

RELATABLE: Ellen DeGeneres

RIGHT NOW: Aziz Ansari

SON OF PATRICIA: Trevor Noah

STICKS AND STONES: Dave Chappelle


The streets of Twitter showed nothing but love to Patricia's son!



The Grammys will take place in New York City on 25 January 2020 and will be hosted by the oh-so-talented musician, Alicia Keys.

Trevor Noah's grind has been on overdrive. In August 2019, the 35-year-old secured the number four spot on Forbes Magazine. Much of his coins come from several stand-up comedy gigs, which have accumulated to a massive R430 million!

Despite his global success, Trevor has somehow remained grounded. In an interview with Anele Mdoda on the defunct television talk show, Real Talk, Trevor mentioned that he is not crazy about the celebrity culture, as he is all about the work.

Well, he might hold this view about himself, but on the outside he is regarded as the ultimate star!
