Comedy Central is set to receive another African Comedian.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has hand-picked up-and-coming comedian Loyiso Madinga to be the show's African correspondent. 

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.
