South African Comedian Trevor Noah Debuts On The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

Watch SA comedian Trevor Noah's hilarious debut segment for The Daily Show in 'Spot The Africa'

Last week, Jon Stewart introduced the latest correspondent to The Daily Show, Johannesburg-born comedian Trevor Noah. Noah, who coincidently was also the first South African comedian to appear on The Tonight Show, debuted in a hilarious and spot-on segment called "Spot The Africa," which had him and Stewart riffing on race, police shootings and the oh-so-tired misconceptions about Africa from the West. Noah, who's one of the most sought after media personalities in SA, typically draws on his bi-racial upbringing in pre and post-apartheid South Africa for his material. Watch Noah and Stewart's "Spot The Africa" segment below.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
