Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that Trevor Noah has bought a new house for the whopping amount of $27.5 million (over R400 million).
The 36-year-old South African comedian purchased the Bel-Air mansion after a Los Angeles architect named Mark Rios designed and built it for himself.
The massive home features six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Luxuries including an infinity pool, a screening room, a spa and steam room and a rooftop area for entertaining.
The purchase comes just a few months after The Daily Show host sold his previous home in the same area. Congrats to our South African export.
