Alakhe Mdoda has been making the news recently and was even photographed with superstars because of his mother’s influence. Recently he had a lot of fun after visiting the United States of America, where he got to spend time with his now famous uncle Trevor Noah.

His guest on the show laughed their hearts out, and he goes on to say that he raced his nephew the past weekend. While he speaks, a picture of him and Alakhe is shared next to him, as he narrates how he did not let Alakhe win in their race.
