Burna Boy had some complaints about Trevor Noah, and Anele Mdoda, commenting about it, joked that she agreed.
For most viewers from South Africa, the major highlight of the interview, though, was Alakhe’s appearance. Trevor Noah, born South African, allowed the kid to have his seat before the interview with the Nigerian singer. At some point, all three — Burna Boy, Alakhe and Trevor Noah — posed for photographs, with the show’s host carrying the kid in his arms.
From the video of the encounter, it was also clear that the kid had taken a liking to the Nigerian singer’s hairstyle, which he pointed to at some point.

South Africans who followed the show and the kid’s appearance on it were impressed with Anele Mdoda’s parenting style, and some of them noted they’d love to give their kids similar opportunities so that they can stand out. You can check out some of the reactions below.
With this early exposure, it’ll be interesting to see if Alakhe would follow the paths of those he’d in the story. Maybe the world should look forward to another singer or media personality.
