Ntsiki Mazwai has stepped on the toes of many after her comment on Trevor Noah's new mansion.
Trevor, host of The Daily Show, splurged R420m on his luxurious mansion which boasts 11 bathrooms, six bedrooms, an infinity pool, spa and a steam room. As soon as the news hit SA, scores flooded social media to congratulate the "inspirational" comedian.
The news of the new mansion went viral and many took to their social media to congratulate the star but looks like Ntsiki has some questions about Trevor's wealth.
Her first reaction to the news was to share her fear about affording and owning a mansion.
"My fear is affording a beautiful big house but being alone and no big family to share the space with … It's a real fear," she tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet, she asked what Trevor "stands for".
Reacting to this, tweeps defended the comedian, saying he is living his best life and is making big money moves.
Ntsiki went on to question whether it's possible to achieve such success, or whether it's all a pipe dream.
"Is this level of wealth attainable for black people, or have they chosen 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."

I think black people generally have a problem with any black person that becomes successful. Trevor is a comedian, why and how people all of a sudden expect him to represent something reeks of jealousy. He wouldn't be questioned or expected of anything if he was still struggling— Tshepo Bosielo (@bosielo_tshepo) January 10, 2021
Unomana shame— Wonga Tyali (@NobuhleMashange) January 10, 2021

Yaz' mfethu I LOVE uNtsiki for being an outspoken person and she confronts anybody without fear or favor BUT her problem is she can't give credit where its due. I mean Trevor is a South African, a simple CONGRATULATIONS from her wouldn't be a bad idea but she's throwing shades.— Mr Vee (@Spharizzer) January 10, 2021
