@MStudybuddy shared:

"The same way MacG started, as a joke! Shooting with his phone. At that time, it looked like he was playing. That's the same way you should start your own shows. Put in the work! Who put MacG up? He invited you to his podcast; manje what more do you want from him?"

@siya_Gatsheni_ posted:

"Ai suka, this is jealousy. People must learn to stand up for themselves like other kids. This thing of entitlement won’t help. Sukuma uzizamele."

@Keneilwesetsoh1 replied:

"Penuel is seeking relevance. MacG put on Sol when no one else did."

@newdawnawaits commented:

"MacG has hired many people. I'm disappointed with Penuel. I didn’t want to believe the narrative that he is captured, but it’s things like this that make you wonder what if he is."
