The year has just about started and controversial podcaster Macgyver ‘MacG’ Mukwevho is already trending for all the wrong reasons.
In the latest episode of his podcast, “Podcast and Chill”, MacG had a virtual interview with Ari Lennox where they spoke about her personal life and music career.
However, in the first two minutes of the interview, things got very awkward when MacG asked the star a very personal question.
MacG asked Ari what inspired one of her earlier singles, “Pop”. In the single, Ari speaks about having her vagina “popped”, which is a reference to sex.
“It was such a silly song but it was so on time, like if I pop it for you, are you going to play with me or are we going to get married,” she said.
MacG then responded saying: “And where are we at right now, is someone f*cking you good right now?”.
A visibly shocked Ari leaned into the camera and shouted, “Oh my God…whoa there!”.
The American singer then goes on to tell MacG that his question was wild.
“That's a wild question, why ask it that way, whoa,” she said.
In an attempt to justify why he asked the question the way he did, the podcaster said it’s because that was how she said it in the song.
While Ari agrees that she sings about it in the song, she admits that MacG caught her off-guard.
“I did say that, but no, I am chilling, I am not messing with anyone,” she said.
A clip of the interview made it to Twitter where many South Africans found his question in poor taste.
And then he laughs when it's clear that she didn't like that question. Sies this guy man. But you guys enabled him, you encouraged it!! https://t.co/xfMVnvaSnH— Anathi Raba (@AnathiRaba) January 18, 2022
He only knows how to chop shit with his fellow soap scum that, faced with an established global superstar, he can only shock her and make her uncomfortable because he can’t do the one job his bigoted little podcast requites of him — interview 💀 https://t.co/a5Rmmc8pcM— 𝐶ℎ𝑎𝑛𝑖 𝐾𝑦𝑛𝑒𝑠 (@Philile_Zandi) January 19, 2022

Ignore the SA women, just focus on that lady's reaction and you will know that was just an awful question. There's really a way of asking question in a more respectable manner even if the person sings about such https://t.co/vbqHdlJPc6— Nthabeleng Koneshe (@nthabeyk) January 19, 2022
