Tweeps want him to keep off her

Image of Uncle Waffles
The newest celebrity DJ on the block is trending again - this time alongside her manager Mzukisi Siwundla, popularly known as Zeus Omega. The manager recently shared a photo of a group from his media company Kreative Kornerr, including many men in different capacities of the company, and Uncle Waffles.

Many Twitter users are not taking kindly to the picture, and they are reading into the gesture. Some have seen the gesture as an attempt on the part of the manager and his team to capitalise on the young viral sensation's new-found fame. It doesn't sit well with her fans that nobody knew about her or her management until the first video of her dancing to "Adiwele" by Young Stunna.

The picture also featured seven men, and Uncle Waffles was the only lady. This, coupled with the fact that she is only 21 years old, and most of the men in the picture look older than her, has made social media users uncomfortable. Female fans of the star are pointing out that it is difficult for a young woman trying to make it in a male-dominated industry, and the fact that she was surrounded by older men seems a little predatory. Others have also pointed out that the field should have more women, and the fact that Kreative Kornerr has a ratio of men to women that high is wrong.

The controversy comes only hours after Uncle Waffles shared news that she would be going on tour across Africa. She captioned the poster announcement "Adiwele", a nod to the song that made her famous. The caption could also be seen as her subtly trolling social media users who recently called her overrated and said they were tired of her only playing one song in all the videos of her they have seen online.

As some fans express their discomfort with her management, others are insisting that the fact that she is going on tour means that her representation is working well for her.

The social media response of fans being concerned about the celebrity's welfare is surprising, considering just the other day, she was trending online for being "boring". People expressed that she needed to make up her mind and tell them whether she would be a DJ, a dancer or an "Adiwele" influencer. They said her gimmick was running its time, and some even suggested that her wave of fame would not last the year.

It is quite the shocker that fans are now back on board with her "gimmick", to the point of accusing Riky Rick of trying to jump on her wave, and now her manager is getting the same.

We hope that this is just a case of the label being proud of their young star, and not the sinister motives that the fans are suggesting.
