WATCH: Mr Smeg talks luxury brands and his lunch date that went viral in episolde 4 of The Lite Show
After a short break due to Level 4 restrictions, The Lite Show is finally back with Episode 4 of Season 2.
The episode sees host Donovan Goliath interview social media personality, Michael Mncedi Bucwa, also known as Mr Smeg, who carries around his “gender neutral” kettle, also known as ‘Smegie’ with him everywhere. And we do mean everywhere… from hiking trips to the gym and now to the set of The Lite Show.
WATCH: Episode 4 of season 2:
Michael aka Mr Smeg chats to Donovan in an extended interview where he unpacks how he found people’s attachment to brand names amusing and decided to build a social media persona around his relationship with his red Smeg kettle – which he has now redefined as the coveted status symbol for luxury. The Engineering Systems Analyst has since built a healthy relationship with the Smeg brand, which noticed his Twitter posts and his love for its products and offered him a Smeg Espresso Machine to go with the kettle.

The musical guest on the show is none other than 26-year-old creative from Mpumalanga, Benny Afroe. Watch him perform his hit track ‘Yohh’. You also don’t want to miss out on the week’s Rap Up on all things trending with Ginger Mac and Rouge.
