Written by on January 12, 2018

Comedy Central has announced that local stand-up comedian Loyiso Madinga has been selected to helm local segments for Africa, reporting outside the US for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Madinga will help shed light on political and social topics in South Africa, during the African segments of the show.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Madinga said that this has not only been a major opportunity for him, but also for South Africa.

“The attention on me is overwhelming and a bit crazy but I guess the universe wouldn’t have given it to me if I wasn’t ready. They didn’t only choose me, they chose SA and Africa,” Madinga said.

“I am really excited to create a voice for local satire. What is really great is this places an authentic spotlight on local comedy and presents a reality that combats the stereotypical perception of Africa. Being part of the Daily Show, I get to join the best conversation in the world,” he said.
