Robert Noah’s Biography

There are no details of when or where he was born. Also, there are no details of who his parents are. Robert is, however, of Swiss-German descent.

The reports revealed he was 46 years old when he met Patricia Nombuyiselo, a Xhosa from South Africa, who is Trevor Noah’s mother. Even though Patricia knew little about Robert, the two fell in love with each other, not minding their racial differences.

Robert and Patricia would meet regularly at a building that she had illegally rented from a foreigner. But the apartheid rule would soon work against their relationship.

Under the apartheid rule, it was illegal for white and black people to have romantic relationships; therefore, Robert and Patricia came under pressure. The reports revealed that Patricia was handed a fine and a jail term.

At that period, Trevor had to move in with his maternal grandmother Nomaliza Frances Noah at the outskirts of Soweto.

Before his relationship with Patricia was affected by Apartheid rule, Robert was playing an active role of a father to his son, but things soon change after their relationship was disrupted. Trevor Noah would later reveal that whenever he met his dad during those periods, they would confine themselves to secure places to avoid police detection. He added that there were times he would have to walk a few meters ahead of his parents or on the other side of the road while pretending not to know them.

Separation and Reunion

The reports revealed that when Trevor was 13 years old, Robert moved to Cape Town, and he lost touch with his son for about seven years.

Trevor believed that his father never loved him and had forsaken him, but this would turn out to be untrue after Patricia encouraged him to go to Cape Town, where he reunited with his father.

To prove to Trevor that he still loves him, Robert gave him a scrapbook that contained everything he (Trevor) had done from the time he (Robert) moved to Cape Town. This cleared off every doubt and ills Trevor had against his father.

After Apartheid rule

Once apartheid was over, Robert relocated to a new area called Yeoville, where he had the freedom to take his son to play in the nearby park with other children from different races. The reports revealed they met every Sunday afternoon at Robert’s house.


Robert Noah was a German chef and businessman who established one of the first restaurants in Johannesburg during apartheid rule to serve black people. 

Net worth

There are no details of Robert Noah’s net worth, but his son, Trevor Noah, is reportedly worth around $100 million.
