The Chicken Connoisseur Goes Grime, Messes Up

The Chicken Connoisseur switches up the format of his hit show the Pengest Munch but makes a big mistake in the process.

We've been Chicken Connoisseur stans for a minute now. Like millions of others drawn to Elijah Quashie's charisma, his mastery of London slang and his genuine love of corner chicken shops we subscribe to the channel to see the man himself. Pure personality.


So when today's episode of The Pengest Munch had Quashie showing up to eat with a squad we were a little unsure of how to feel about the new direction. And when Quashie's guest started spitting over the Dipset Anthem instrumental it was over. End of an era. But something weird happened—we liked it. We REALLY liked it.

Except we googled Quashie's guest, the up-and-coming MC, Bonkaz, and turns out he's a really terrible person who is currently on the British sex offender registry and has served time for kidnapping and torturing a disabled man. All in all a pretty difficult person to defend, let alone give shine to on the usual bastion of good taste that is the Pengest Munch.

So, good format but scrap the awful guest.
