In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that Makwa has slammed DJ Maphorisa. The popular music producer, who has produced hits for the likes of Kwesta, was a guest on The Sobering Podcast recently.

Peeps feel that he should tell his side of the story on Podcast and Chill with MacG because The Sobering Podcast's hosts kept disturbing him while he was detailing his experience with Phori.
