Uncle Waffles marks the first year anniversary of her breakthrough in the South African music industry.

On the 16th of October 2021, the DJ shared on social media, a video clip from her 30 minutes set and it changed her life completely, as the video went viral and it garnered her a huge following from South Africans and even the international star, Drake.

Taking to Twitter, Waffles expressed gratitude to God, as she now performs globally.

“This 30 minute set I wasn’t suppose to get completely changed my life, I’m forever greatful thank you God!”

Speaking to Complex UK about the event that turned her life around, Uncle Waffles said:

“My management had recorded the entire set and I posted one of the clips randomly, not thinking anything of it on the following Saturday afternoon—thinking it might do 50,000 views at most if that. I checked my phone a couple of hours later and saw it was in the hundreds of thousands, but this was all online and I was still going about my daily business so it didn’t really sink in.”

“It was when I woke up the next day to see that Drake had followed me, that I thought he had done it by accident so I just didn’t tell anybody for a couple of hours in case he unfollowed [laughs]. Everything felt surreal until I started to see tangible things, like bookings and enquiries”
