This year, the Mail & Guardian received more than 6 000 entries. Schwarp made the list of 200 in the Arts and Entertainment category and Mohapi in the Film and Media category.

The accolade comes months after Mohapi won the Best Commercial Weekend Show at the Liberty Radio Awards 2019. The international award-winning public speaker also heads up Jacaranda FM’s music product.

"It truly is an honour to be recognised among the best young minds the country has to offer," Mohapi says.

Schwarp adds, "Making the list came as a welcome surprise that reaffirmed [my] belief that nothing is impossible if you work hard and remain true to who you are."

The kykNET and Kie TV host currently heads up digital for Jacaranda FM and recently produced and directed SKEEF, a South African LGBTI+ documentary.

According to the Mail & Guardian, its 'Top 200' list has become the benchmark to celebrate and recognise excellence across industries and is used to earmark and showcase future young leaders.

Mohapi is currently the host of Weekends with Kenzy Mohapi, which airs on Saturdays from 16:00 to 19:00 and on Sundays from 14:00 to 18:00. Schwarp is currently the host of Weekends with Renaldo Schwarp, which airs on Saturdays from 12:00 to 16:00 and Sundays from 10:00 to 14:00.
