Some people are critising Trevor for not buying her grandmother a house and new furniture. Just to let you know, if you read Trevor's book Born a Crime, Trevor explains that gogo doesn't want her furniture refurbished and certainly she doesn't want to be moved. And that applies to all our South African gogo's actually, the furniture and the house is part of them, they don't define success by flashy things but are content with life and memories!

Trevor: "I was a very good looking baby. I'm sure."
Gogo: *whistles* "Energetic and really naughty."
Trevor: "But mostly good looking."
Gogo: "Like hell."
She's the best! Their whole conversation was amazing to watch.

Hey no offense Trevor, but your grandma is way cooler than you. We should just give Gogo her own show.

The way she whistles saying apartheid is really painful for her to remember😭! Salute to our African freedom fighters, alive or dead.

Watching Trevor Noah with his grandmother filled my heart with pride and admiration for his success and perseverance. South Africa has given the United States a true gift in Trevor. As an African American blessed beyond reason, I am extremely proud Trevor for what he had to overcome and I wish him every success and blessing.

As I gave my thumbs up to Trevor's video, I saw that there were 5.1K thumbs down. What? WHY?! Trevor is letting us have a glimpse into his private life, and at this glorious woman no less. Trevor, thank you for this glimpse at your private life with your "Gogo":)
