Patricia Noah is famous for being a mother to her celebrity son, Trevor Noah. Trevor is a South African comedian, political commentator, and host of the American Satirical news program "The Daily Show."
Trevor was born out of wedlock because of her extreme desire to have a child
Patricia did not feel her parents' love that made her feel to have her child that she would love unconditionally.
She gave birth to Trevor during apartheid, where getting married to the mixed-race was considered illegal.
She met Robert Noah in her community called Hillbrow, the place for white people at the time of apartheid. At the time, she did not want marriage but a child.
Robert, a Swiss-German who was twice Patricia's age, denied having a child, fearing getting caught but later ended up having Trevor because of Patricia's stubbornness.
Her first marriage was full of abuse
Even after the end of apartheid, the cultural attitude that existed became the reason for her separation from Robert.
She met Ngisaveni Abel Shingange, a towering mechanic, and later got married to him in 1992.
She realized that she married a man in disguise who would pretend to be nice in front of people but was abusive at home.
He even started beating her with bicycle frames in front of the public and staff. Because of his abusive behavior, she had to live in the shed in the backyard to get rid of his behavior. She divorced him in 1996.
Her ex-husband did not spare her even after divorce and shot her near to death
Patricia re-married Sfiso Khoza in July 2009, but her ex-husband did not spare her and tortured her. He tracked her down and shot her near to death out of rage.
He shot her twice in the head and the lower torso. But with the grace of God, both the bullets had passed through her body without hitting any major organs, arteries, veins, or nerves.
He also threatened to kill Trevor.
A brave mother who raised her children all on her own despite facing circumstances that came by
She raised Trevor by locking him in the room most of the time away from the law's eyes and fear of being taken away from her to the orphanage.
She had to pretend to be a stranger in front of her son while walking out in public. She also had to protect her other two sons from her abusive husband.
Her son Isaac was just 15 months old when they moved to a shed in the backyard where they stayed for seven years. She is a true hero of her children's lives.
Patricia is currently running a property firm in Johannesburg and earns a sufficient amount for her living.
Her worth is not revealed, but her son earns extravagant income to relish a lavish lifestyle.
Starting his career as a comedian, Noah has excelled in his career as a television host and actor. He is the recipient of an Emmy award and various other awards.
