Twitter reacted with some going crazy over the DJ’s beauty, while others pointed out that there seems to be something behind Drake’s interest in Waffles, but some tweeps are not convinced, stating that a man should be able to compliment a woman without there being more to it than just that, a compliment.
When a woman compliments Black Coffee's deejaying skills it's bcos he's rlly good but when a man compliments Uncle Waffles's skills it's bcos he wants to smash Ok
One day we will discuss why SA men are trying to discredit this woman's work bcos it's not like she's bad at her job https://t.co/FqMmreBrOa

"9 AM in Swaziland I always knew it would come to that/ Air Drake in the AMs I'm touching down in the motherland/ Coming up with some other plans, breakfast in another land/ Black Coffee already linked up, Uncle Waffles to package that. https://t.co/7jYdsOv5jQ

Uncle Waffles rose to fame when a video of her behind the decks went viral. It seemed that it was less about her DJying and more about her presence as a performer as well as a dancer.
Nonetheless, South Africa fell in love with her. And this lead to the video breaking the internet, catching the attention of the likes of Drake himself, who wasted no time in following her.
The 21-year-old has been on the up and up since and has shown no interest in stopping anytime soon.
Social media has been split on the viral DJ with some questioning if her success as a DJ is based on her talent or beauty while others simply calling out haters as jealous of the young star stating that she is young and living her dream.
In a post last year, she stated on her Instagram how grateful she is for her success in scoring 120 gigs in just two months which would mean that if she had a gig every day between November and December, she would at least have two gigs each day.
In just a year Uncle Waffles has done more than what many in her position would do in a decade, she recently shut down the UK alongside DJ Maphorisa and Focalistic. Performingseveralr of sold-out venues they are making big moves by being some of the first to bring Amapiano from South Africa to the world.
