Comedy Central on Thursday, January 11th got a new African correspondent for their hugely successful comedy show, The Daily Show. Loyiso Madinga, another South African, joins Trevor Noah and will be covering various topical segments.
Loyiso was selected for his comedic and conversational skills. This is another win for Africans who are getting more opportunities to showcase their talents on bigger platforms. Trevor Noah made the announcement saying,”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?”

Madinga will be making his appearance on Thursday 18th next week on DSTV Channel 122. Can the world ever get enough of humour? This is what Loyiso had to say, “What is really great, is that 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.”
The Daily Show ratings have been up ever since Trevor Noah took over. We are rooting for our own Eric Omondi and Njugush to get international platforms so that we can all make the world a better place, with endless humour.
