Cape Town – Wealthy philanthropist Bill Gates reviewed local comedian Trevor Noah’s book for Time.com.
In his review of the autobiographical work (which reflects on Trevor’s upbringing), Bill Gates praises Trevor’s mom especially saying, "In fact, Noah’s mother emerges as the real hero of the book. She’s an extraordinary person who is fiercely independent and raised her son to be the same way."
Gates also reflects on South African race relations in his review and Trevor’s place in society in relation to them.
For those who might not have read the book the local comedian unpacks a lot about growing up in the twilight of Apartheid and speaks about his family’s struggles.
