As a child, South African funnyman, Trevor Noah, had a dream - he wanted to be so rich that he could buy all the food he wanted whenever he wanted to. Now it seems funny, but that dream is one many people can relate to.
Trevor Noah, popular comedian and TV show host, grew up humbly and never expected to be as successful as he is today.
He remembered what a big deal it was to get take-aways as a kid and how he told his mother he would one day be rich enough to buy not just one - but two burgers. And dessert!
His mother was awesome and supported his dream of buying lots of food - something the comedian is happy about.
While Trevor joked about it, it is something many South Africans can relate to - growing up poor is no pleasure.
