A week after his drag personality helped spark podcaster MacG to make transphobic comments, actor Siv Ngesi says he doesn’t want the presenter to be "cancelled". News24 spoke to Ngesi about his journey to becoming a queer ally, how he decided to start dressing in drag, and why he doesn’t think he’ll ever get married. 

Actor and comedian Sivuyile "Siv" Ngesi does not believe that the man who made transphobic comments in relation to his new drag persona "Sivanna" should be "cancelled".
