- Trevor Noah spent a short time in Mzansi to show support and take part in the Match in Africa charity tennis event
- His mother said she only found out about her son's visit to his home country when she heard about it via media reports
- But she's not upset or angry with him - she knows that he's busy and says she's busy as well
Shortly after Trevor Noah visited South Africa to be part of tennis legend Roger Federer's charity event, it came to light that his mom didn't even know about his visit.
Trevor was part of the Match in Africa tennis-based charity event that managed to raise a staggering R52 million.
The money will go towards aiding education in Africa and it was a big moment for Trevor, who shared on social media how special it was for him.
However, his mother didn't know that he was here - she found out through the press coverage of the event.
Although many would feel this was rude of Trevor, his mother isn't at all upset with him. She understands that he is a busy man.
"Please understand, as a businessman he can't always report to his mother about his movements. It's not about the relationship!"
This came after there were other reports claiming that Patricia was frustrated about Trevor's new life in New York.
This turned out to be untrue, according to ZAlebs.
"He is living his life in New York, and I'm living my life here in South Africa. I don't have to be attached to him, he is running his business and I am taking caring of mine."
Well said, mama.
Meanwhile, Ntsiki Mazwai ruffled feathers when she had something to say about Trevor living in America.
Briefly.co.za reported that the poet and activist likened him to a black orphan adopted by white people.
"Trevor Noah is starting to have that energy of the black child adopted by whites... not quite the same as the other blacks. Wears nice clothes and has nice toys. And distances themselves from blackness..."
This, of course, garnered an intense response by social media users. However, Ntsiki wasn't bothered by any of the negative vibes.
She told peeps to ignore her tweets if they get so upset by what she says.
