The Early life of Trevor Noah
Comedian Trevor Noah was born on February 20, 1984, in Johannesburg, South Africa. Under the South African apartheid rule of the time, which had criminalized interracial marriage by the time Trevor was born, life was difficult for the Noah family because Robert Noah was of Swiss ancestry and Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah was of Xhosa ancestry (he wrote about his experiences growing up under apartheid in South Africa in his 2016 book “Born a Crime”).
Trevor Noah: Personal Life
Aside from English, Trevor Noah is the only prominent American talk show presenter who is fluent in eight languages. These are Xhosa, Zulu, Sotho, Tswana, Tsonga, Afrikaans, and German.
He left South Africa for the United States under terrible circumstances: his mother had been murdered by her ex-husband, Ngisaveni Abel Shingange, and Noah claims that Ngisaveni threatened him when he tried to confront him over the phone about the murder. Due to the incident, Shingange was found guilty of attempted murder in 2011 since Noah’s mother miraculously survived.
He has stated his desire for the event to bring attention to domestic violence and the response (or lack thereof) of law enforcement in South Africa: “My mother had been reporting domestic violence to the police for years with no results. The culture of South Africa generally operates this way. Case dockets disappeared, and trials never took place.”
