    Amazing – in Kenya, the word for grandmother in many tribes is; “Gogo”…so close to “Koko” !!!

    • Rebotile Sebati says:

      Koko means to knock and ALSO in my language (Sepedi – a South African language) it means granny. But are pronounced differently

    • Bobby Shabangu says:

      In Zulu, Koko is “knock knock” and Gogo is grandmother. So to you it might sound the same but it’s different.

    • Mawande Lushozi says:

      +Luthando Nqakala It’s probably because they fall under the “bantu” language group. Most languages in central, eastern and southern Africa have the same roots.

    I LOVE THIS, I LOVE THIS, I LOVE THIS. Best video Trevor ever uploaded. Shoutout to Coco and all African veterans..they saw it all and their spirit of survival and determination, paved the way for this new generation. Ps: I’m Nigerian

    • Luthando Nqakala says:

      ‘Coco’ or ‘koko’ is a sound we make whilst knocking on a door, before entering a house. It is meant to imitate the ‘knock-knock’ sound when knocking on a door.

      The word you’re looking for is ‘gogo’. Pronounced ‘gaw-gaw’.
      Which is Zulu for ‘grandmother’.

  8. Thapelo Modise says:

    I respect your brother Trevor. You’re a true African who is not ashamed of your roots. I really loved this video. Keep the good work up. Keep representing!!! 😉

    Your grandma is gorgeous. Lots of respect

  10. Gwendolyn Simmonds says:

    My Gram is the same. She absolutely refuse to move out the old home she has. She refused to upgrade the items she has. She only calls on us when something brakes and only want it repaired not replaced. I was told leaving your home land is considered being a traitor. You must learn one’s culture before you open your idiot fat mouth, please.

  11. Lil Snoop says:

    This is wonderful thank you for sharing with us. 💯🙏🏻

  12. John Lewis says:

    I went to Joburg in 1999 and visited Soweto. It was close to when apartide ended (as a light skinned black man) and was a life defining experience! Your country is filled with wonderful people who after realizing I was American would treat me as a friend! I will always remember the graciousness and kindness I was given and thank you for letting us see a small part of your life and where you come from!

  13. ReallyGoodHipHop says:

    Yooooo…. We African Americans joke about how all of our grandmaa had those same fruit magnets on the refrigerator growing up… Lo and behold, it’s true in South Africa too!! 😂😂😭

  14. Siliziwe Lusasa says:

    I’m a black South African living and working in Dubai .. a voice in the back of my head was saying why does he not buy her a house. And I realized that although I earn a good amount of money. My mother still lives in her apartheid house. And she does not want to move, it’s good to see how Trevor still maintains his African customs simple things like knocking before you enter even though it’s your house. Greeting the neighbors whether you are friends or not this is small things that are rare in most places of the world.

  15. Kodjo Swole says:

    I’m originally from Togo, West Africa. I’ve been in the US for 12 years. This makes me miss my home country so much.

  16. Luizudo says:

    People are insane enough to ask for apartheid back? Illusion/ brainwash much?!?!?

  17. Angel A says:

    The atrocities committed against the black peoples of this earth are beyond horrific. What is even more horrible is that we will never know the extent of brilliance, innovation, compassion and humanity that was lost as a direct result😔

    Respecc brah🔥🔥💯💯
    Love from INDIA 🇮🇳

    • Jamie Matthews says:

      unsub from t series

    • Jamie Matthews says:

      sub to pewds

    • Hawaipandat says:

      +Jamie Matthews
      T series isn’t bad either…
      But pewdiepie did make it INDIA VS REST OF THE WORLD, with all that racially motivated diss tracks and whatnot, not to mention H3H3 podcast bullshit about India, it was pure poison.
      Even I don’t like T series that much, not every Indian does, the race would have been over a long time ago if everyone of us had subscribed to T series.
      I used to follow pewdiepie but somehow in this one he was wrong to mix a music channel with entire country, i had no issues if he had dissed T series, in fact we would have enjoyed it, but along the way he dragged India in the middle of his fight.
      When we say anything about pewdiepie, we never ever call out Sweden, PewDiePie’s defeat is inevitable, no matter the subscribers gap it will only be a matter of time but his fall from grace is very disappointing for most of his fans in India.

    i died when she said she doesn’t watch his show because of load shedding

    When Trevor’s Grandmother expressed the anxiety and worry of Trevor being taken by the Flying squad, I lost it. 😭 Beautiful Interview !! I needed to see this.
