Eastern Cape-born, award-winning comedian Loyiso Madinga has been hand-picked to become the first ever Daily Show African correspondent in order to give each country a chance to show off their stable geniuses.

The Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah expressed that this venture is to show off their talents in different countries as well 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?" said Trevor Noah.

And although this might mean that Loyiso will be broadcasting from Africa and not in the States, the ecstatic comedian took to Instagram to share the big news with his fans saying: 

"This isn’t even about me. This is about SA comedy and comedy on in Africa. We’re all grinding so damn hard to make this thing work and this only happened because the hard work, love and dedication we all put into this is obvious to the world. Luckily for me, I have a whole team of some of the best comedy writers, a stellar production team and Comedy Central behind me. Here’s to SA comedy , comedians and comedy lovers."

Loyiso will make his debut in Africa from the ANC elective conference on Comedy Central on Thursday, January 11 at 9.30pm. 

Congratulations Loyiso!!
