South African poet Ntsiki Mazwai recently upset tweeps when she fired shots at comedian Trevor Noah for purchasing a lavish mansion in the plush suburb of Bel-Air in the United States.
Mazwai posted a series of tweets that made her sound bitter and jealous as usual:
“Is this level of wealth attainable for black people, or have they chose one of us as the golden kid to aspire to? Given them a platform and wealth and said, ‘Here, be inspired, it’s possible black child? I’m just asking”, she wrote.
The Daily Show host; Trevor Noah bought a ZAR420k mansion which includes 11 bathrooms, six bedrooms, a swimming pool, spa, and a steam room.
When the news broke of Noah’s mansion, many congratulated the comedian and host of The Daily Show. Hundreds of South Africans and non-South Africans responded by defending the comedian, saying he is living his best life and is making big money moves.
While Ntsiki went on to question whether it’s possible to achieve such success, or whether it’s all a pipe dream, many accused her of being jealous and projecting her insecurities on Trevor, who is neighbours with Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston, and other big-name stars.
Here are some of the reactions from tweeps who were defending and supporting Trevor Noah:
