The Daily Show will now have an African correspondent. South African host, Trevor Noah, announced his new hire yesterday, Loyiso Madinga. Noah hand picked Madinga for this position to nature African content on an international platform.
Madinga was selected to join The Daily Show team for his award-winning comedy and conversation skills.
“As wild as Donald Trump is for America, many countries around the world have Trumps of their own and since The Daily Show is in many countries, we thought, why not give each country a chance to show off their stable geniuses?” said Noah in an interview.
Madinga says that he thrilled to be the voice of local satire and help break stereotypical perceptions of the continent.
Madinga’s debut field trip report was from the ANC elective conference and aired on Comedy Central yesterday for The Daily Show.
The young comedian hails from a little village in the Eastern Cape and we wish him luck in this new position.
It is so refreshing to have local talent making international waves.
