Lebo M, the award-winning composer of The Lion King musical, was a guest on Podcast and Chill, the popular YouTube channel hosted by Sol Phenduka and MacG. The interview, which was uploaded on 15 August 2021, has already garnered over 500,000 views and thousands of comments.
Lebo M did not hold back on spilling the tea about his latest divorce from his wife of one year, Pretty Samuels-Morake. He revealed that he asked her to leave his house after he discovered that she had taken out policies on his life without his consent. He said he gave her his proxies when he left the country for work, but she refused to return them when he came back. He also accused her of being unfaithful and dishonest.
He said he did not trust anyone with money, and that he would not sacrifice his wealth for love. He also dismissed the notion that he had trust issues or that he was a madman for divorcing three or four times. He said he was not the first person in the country to do so, and that he did not care about what people thought of him.
He also said he had no advice for MacG, who recently got engaged. He wished him good luck and said he hoped he would not end up like him.
