Loyiso Madinga is a comedian, actor, writer, and MC. Loyiso is one of four South Africans to have a half-hour special with Netflix as part of their Comedians of the World series. He’s the African correspondent for Trevor Noah’s Daily Show. Locally, he’s featured on LNN with Loyiso Gola and Bantu Hour and has two one-man shows under his belt. Oh, and he stars in the upcoming Netflix original series Queen Sono with Pearl Thusi. He’s achieved more than most in the SA entertainment industry but that doesn’t mean everything is going great for him.
As you’ll learn on this podcast, success can lead to self-doubt and insecurities that can be debilitating. While from the outside it looks like Loyiso has a career many would be jealous of, internally there are struggles that many of us will find relatable. This is a candid and open discussion about what success really means as a South African artist from someone who is well on his way to greatness but is scared he may never achieve it.
