Written by on February 23, 2018

Trevor Noah fans have voiced their disapproval of the comedian’s choice to feature international actress Lupita Nyong’o as his mother in the film adaptation of his memoir, Born A Crime.

Many anticipated an all-South African cast, and even made suggestions for who should star in the film.

On a post by media personality Phil Mphela, over 2 000 Twitter users voted that Scandal! actor Brighton Ngoma should play Trevor Noah.


However, not everyone believes the film should feature South African actors.

On the same post, more than 1 000 users voted against Ngoma.
