The renowned comedian, who was in the country to host the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday, made a turn by his beloved 91-year-old granny, Nomalizo Frances Noah, ahead of the festival.
Ma Nomalizo shared fond memories of Mandela and reminisced about the horrors of the apartheid era with her famous grandson.
The host of The Daily Show shared his visit on his Facebook page yesterday morning.
In the eight-minute clip, Noah’s ouma talks of her impression of Mandela, who she described as “like a god for black people”.
“He was just like our god on Earth... really,” she shared.

She also regaled the audience with memories of Noah’s childhood, describing him as handsome but energetic and naughty child.
The clip ended with Noah asking his grandmother if she watched The Daily Show.
She cheekily responded that she was unable to due to load shedding.
Trevor shared the stage with Hollywood royalty Oprah, Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z, Tyler Perry, as well as hitmakers Usher, Pharrell Williams and Ed Sheeran.
The superstars were in SA for the centenary celebrations of Madiba, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year had he lived.
