5 SA Rappers Who Have Ventured Into Podcasting. Podcasts have (informally) taken the place of the traditional radio listening we all grew up with. The popularity of online talk shows has skyrocketed in recent years and shows no signs of losing steam.
Podcast And Chill is the most followed Pod in South Ah and it has set the bar very high. Despite Podcast and Chill taking the spotlight, SA rappers have now ventured into the Podcast space and they are making use of their influence to get those high streaming numbers online. Can any of them reach the same level as the Podcast And Chill? Well, that is to be seen, in the interim let’s share with you some of the rappers who have become Podcast hosts.
