The other celebs who wore Balmain's were: Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, Natalia Vodianova, Natasha Poly, Juliette Binoche and Julia Stegner.
Getting to know the star a little better, Briefly.co.za featured an article called SA's mega-talented funnyman: 5 of Trevor Noah's most interesting quotes. In the article we compiled 5 of his most interesting quotes on various people and topics, including Jacob Zuma, Donald Trump and the Guptas. Here is one of the quotes from the article:
1. Was South Africa better under apartheid?
An American lady asked Trevor Noah this question in 2017 during his tour to promote his book, Born a Crime. He dismissed the notion in a smart way: Freedom is hard work. Just because you achieve it, does not now mean that everything is going to be good. And a lot of the time, the fault falls at the feet of those who delivered the promises of liberation. If we look at the stories across the board, the promises that are made by the politicians are those of a better life.
Those that a life will instantaneously become better for all. In South Africa, that’s what the ANC promised at the time. They said free housing, free everything. It was like now that you’ve defeated the oppressor, everything will be open to you. The truth is, what you’ve achieved is the ability to work for those spoils. Those liberators now have to work on providing those opportunities.
