The show has gone through a few changes prior to the announcement, such as radio host and hip-hop commentator Scoop Makhathini no longer sitting on the panel. Scoop shared his departure a few weeks ago when Muchi joined the show. Muchi, joining the panel was well received by fans of the SA Hip Hop show, one person who certainly impressed was Nota. The outspoken personality shared a review of the POPcast and claimed that Muchi rescued the show. “Popcast was on a path to self destruction until they got the YouTube OG and Microwave Boy Muchi on the show,” Nota shared.
The producer, also explained why he felt this way. Nota shared that “too much ass kissing and dick riding almost killed the show. Lack of research and presenter arrogance are the ingredients of failure on a platform which demands authenticity at all costs.” One fan agreed with Nota and shared that Sipho has been able to bring some light to the show and remarked that now at least they have a host, who is informed about the culture and not someone who says, “I haven’t listened to it yet”. Nota also added that it should be about delivering content of a high standard, instead of friendships. “It’s not about saying nice things about your friends, it’s about giving good content.”
