MacGyver “Macg” Mukwevho s a South African house music producer, podcast host and radio DJ who found fame interviewing the cream of South Africa’s entertainment figures.
MacG reportedly began his DJ adventure while still at Hyde Park High School. Years have passed and Macg has held on to what gave him joy as a teen, thrilling South Africa with his podcasts.
MacG began his broadcasting career as a kid, anchoring a programme called Craze. After his Craze adventure, MacG joined the Joburg City Community Radio where he did the weekly round up (top 40) every Saturday.
Thereafter, he had taken a job at YFM. He didn’t last on the job, though. MacG was fired after he made derogatory statements on gays. He had also played an audio clip of a pastor who mocked gays.
MacG’s age is still a subject of speculation, the podcast host not having dwelled much on the subject. His focus has been on his podcast, and he’s making a success of it.
In 2013, MacG was said to be around 25 to 26 years. It’s 2021 now, so he should be around 33 to 34 years.
MacG’s real name is MacGyver Mukwevho. His contracted real name has since become famous in South Africa’s podcast circles
Podcast & Chill
Podcast and Chill With MacG was founded in 2018. The first episode of the podcast premiered the same year in July. It’s been three years of interviewing notable names in South African music and culture.
It has not been an easy run for MacG, though. As he recently noted, some celebs have snubbed his invitation to appear on the podcast. Some would not respond to his request via social media while others, like Boity, would give vague answers and ultimately not get back to him.
The little disappointments along the way notwithstanding, MacG has managed to have a sit-down with notable voices in the industry, including Emtee, Big Zulu, Zola 7, and Nasty C.
Notable figures MacG has wanted to get on the podcast but who have failed to honour his invitations include DJ Euphonik, Cassper Nyovest and Boity.
