Trevor Noah’s fans are defending him after some Twitter users slammed him for not renovating his grandmother’s Soweto home.
The comedian visited 91-year-old Koko during his recent trip to South Africa for the Global Citizen Festival and stopped by his beloved gogo’s home.
With The Daily Show cameras rolling, Trevor chatted to his granny during an interview in her kitchen.
A clearly proud Koko shared stories about the 34-year-old’s childhood and what it was like raising a mixed-race child in apartheid South Africa.
She had Trevor and the crew in stitches when she revealed that she sometimes misses his TV show because of load shedding.
But while many people were touched by the warm interview, some were paying more attention to the old furniture in his gogo’s kitchen.
Koko’s kitchen looked very old school.
Her fridge was adorned with fruit magnets – hands up if your grandmother still does the same – and she had cupboards and a stove that were clearly decades ol

Trevor’s grandmother’s home was clean and homely, but many felt Trevor could have helped her spruce the place up.
“Would have thought Trevor would renovate his Gogo’s house with all those millions. Just a thought,” one Twitter user wrote.

Trevor’s followers were quick to slam the haters.
“And lose all the stories and memories created in that house… Why don’t you fix your grandparents’ home, and stop dictating Trevor to do what you want,” one woman wrote.
Another tweep added: “My greatgran is 100 and refused to get her home renovated. She cooks outside & sometimes uses her coal stove that’s older than me.”
People who keep commenting on Trevor's video with his granny that she needs her house renovated, new furniture and what what… Would it not be awesome if you accompanied these tweets with Befores/Afters of y'all own granny's/mother's houses to show us how it's done?

People that are saying negative things about Trevor’s gran’s house probably don’t know what it’s like to have an old able person in the family.

Are you guys complaining about Trevor’s grandma’s house?
Anibazi abantu abadala nina. They’re set in their ways. You literally have to force them to change i.e. drop that fridge & stove off from the furniture shop etc.

Gogo Koko, who revealed that she won’t travel to America to see Trevor because the thought of flying in a plane over the ocean is just too much, clearly has no problem with her house.
She adores her grandson and it was very clear in their interview.
Take that haters!
