Uncle Waffles recently announced that she would be going on tour. On her social media platforms, she shared a poster indicating that she would be visiting five African countries on tour this November, starting with Ghana and ending with Nigeria.

Over the week that just ended, the DJ performed in Ghana. She shared with fans on Instagram and Twitter short videos of her performances. She brought the house down at the Amapiano and Brunch event held at the Front/Back private club in Accra, which we should mention, was sold out. She is also set to have more appearances in the country up until 9th November, when she will jet off south to Namibia.

The young DJ was moved to tears by the amazing reception she got in Ghana, and went online to share her disbelief. “The phones out, yes I cried after,” she wrote, and shortly followed it up with “You know how crazy this is, lemme go cry again.”
She is clearly experiencing a career high right now. Honestly, she deserves to trend for something positive again. The past few weeks have been brutal for Uncle Waffles as she was thrust in the limelight for negative reasons.

First, South Africans on Twitter bashed her and said she is grossly overrated. They suggested that she was only famous because of that one video, and that her fame would not last. They also suggested that she had only one song, Adiwele, on her set list, and that without it her career would go bust. They said she had bored them already, and needs to decide whether she was a dancer or a DJ.

Even before that wave could die down, videos emerged of people at her label being too friendly with her, and many fans saw undertones of sexual grooming in their interactions. She had to come out to defend herself and her label, especially after the uproar caught the attention of other celebrities including DJ Zinhle and Isibaya star Asavela Mngqithi. It must have been tough for the 21-year old talent to watch her manager Zeus Omega get dragged mercilessly online. 
It’s great, though, that she hasn’t let any of the negativity get to her. She has a thick skin, and so far, she has only used the bad vibes to build herself a ladder to success. Not many celebrities are able to shed fans’ opinions, yet she has mastered the art at such a young age and so early in her astronomical fame. She is certainly going far in her career and we love to see it!
