  • Trevor Noah has made it onto Fortune's prestigious 40 Under 40 list.
  • The SA comedian shares the honour with stars like Beyoncé, Zendaya and Ryan Coogler.
  • This year, Fortune made the decision to divide the list into five categories, each highlighting 40 influential figures.

SA comedian Trevor Noah has landed himself on Fortune's 40 Under 40 list among Hollywood stars Beyoncé, Zendaya and Ryan Coogler.

The Daily Show Host, who is currently dating Saturday Night Lights actor Minka Kelly, was named under the business publications' "Media and Entertainment" section of the list.
Instead of having just one list of 40 influential figures as they usually did in the past, Fortune decided to divide this year's 40 Under 40 list into five categories, each containing 40 people.

"It's been a year of monumental challenges and change, and just one list of 40 emerging leaders wouldn't be enough. This year, we're highlighting 40 influential people in each of five categories: finance, technology, healthcare, government and politics, and media and entertainment," the publication wrote.
