The podcast has been under fire recently following controversial interviews with popular media personalities such as Natasha Tahane, Jub Jub, Amanda Du Pont and American singer Ari Lennox. However, that doesn’t seem to have dimmed Podcast and Chill with MacG's limelight and viewership.
Here are some comments from online users on Twitter in response to the news:
"I'd Love to see A-Reece on #Podcastandchill by MacG. Plus I think MacG is trying to get him on the show. That'll be amazing."
"Are we gonna discuss the amount of millions #PodcastAndChill was offered to be pack up!? Would you have taken it???"
"MacG is honestly a sensation. If he becomes big worldwide a lot of his SA haters will start celebrating him. Much like Jerusalema, no one was doing the dance nor did Master KG receive awards, but everyone joined the bandwagon. Watch #PodcastAndChill."
#PodcastAndChill is taking over Africa and across boarders that's why what MacG explained is making sense, imagine having all the uncensored news within an hour in detail that's a Free Bcc news without adverts involved."
#PodcastAndChill is for the streets!"
"I'm into MacG but I feel like if stops giving people ammo to cancel him, he could actually get some serious sponsors, I'm not saying he should now censor his views but don't give people obvious reasons to cancel you."
Mzansi shook and mortified at MacG’s vulgar interview question for US singer Ari Lennox
Briefly News previously reported on a clip of MacG interviewing American-based vocalist Ari Lennox made the rounds on Twitter. Although the moment should have been celebratory, it was ruined by his crass discussion points instead.
The Podcast and Chill host asked Ari an intrusive question about her sex life, which she was visibly taken aback by. He further probed at the topic by teaching her how to say she wants him to have sex with her in Venda.
Tweeps did not take too well with what they saw and heard in the clip, especially noting the artist’s discomfort. Take a glimpse at the critiques netizens shared concerning MacG’s forwardness below.
“Mac G gets away with a lot hey. He embarrassed us here, shame, and STRONG.”
