Fans of ‘Podcast and Chill’ with Mac G have launched an attack on local publication City Press and one of its writers. This follows after they published an article that seemed to somewhat discredit the controversial podcaster.
With a heading that reads “ When your tired of listening to MacG│ Finding good podcasts can prove to be a trying task, especially with so many on our radar. Janice Phiri shares more about the best podcasts to lend your ear to…”

Although some may see this as a brilliant marketing strategy, seeing that Mac G’s Podcast and Chill ranks amongst the top 3 biggest urban podcasts IN THE WORLD, ranking way above globally renowned podcasts such as ‘Breakfast Club ‘, ‘Joe Budden’, etc.
Therefore just the mention of his name being sure to grab your online attention did however not go over so smoothly for City Press writer Janice Phiri as fans and chillers caught wind of the article and set her ablaze with disapproving comments.
“MacG says a lot of stupid things and behaves like an idiot at times, but yoh please don’t allow yourselves to be fooled and cancel him. He’s the blueprint. We need to close ranks and support him more. Let’s grow his numbers” one tweet stated.
That article did not have the intended outcome.
Don’t say “listen to this if you are tired of MacG” it comes across as an insincere recommendation and a veiled attack.
Rather say, here are some great local podcasts and sell the content. That’s just my two Bitcoin on that.

MacG was correct Radio stations pay Twitter influences to talk negative things about him, The Podcast is a huge threat to Radio Industry.

Although the media personality may have one of the most loyal fanbases in the country and be one of the biggest and most popular podcasters, he has spoken out on theories about media houses being on a mission to sabotage him
