Multi-award winning producer and artist, DJ Maphorisa questioned Podcast and Chill founder, MacG on Twitter about why he made a statement on “gatekeeping.”

Phori said in a tweet no one owns Amapiano. “No one owns Amapiano. Anyone can do it and win. Good example, look at Uncle Waffles one trending Adiwele video the rest was history. She did it alone and look at Costa Titch his doing it alone and he’s winning. Stop saying I am a gatekeeper.”
