Cape Town - TIME Magazine on Friday revealed its list of Next Generation Leaders that included South African comedian Trevor Noah.

The list is comprised of ten young innovators and rising stars that run the gamut from innovative artists and impressive athletes to risk-taking activists and groundbreaking entrepreneurs.  

The magazine praises Noah for his impressive rise to fame and his work as host of The Daily Show - which has seen a massive rise in international viewership.

"Donald Trump has made everyone interested in everything, everywhere. He’s a worldwide phenomenon. And with everything that’s going on—the Muslim ban, threats to women’s rights, the environment—I feel like I can finally say the show has a purpose," Noah told TIME.
