Somizi Mhlongo is impressed with how Uncle Waffles carries herself as a brand.
The Idols SA judge took to his timeline to sing her praises after meeting her for the first time at a gig for which they were both booked at Sunny Obasi in Benoni.
New female DJs etching their names on the wall of fame include DJ Lamiez Holworthy, DBN Gogo, actress-cum-DJ Thuli Phongolo and amapiano star Uncle Waffles. The last name constantly shoots up the trends list and has caught the attention of US rapper Drake.
In his post, Somizi spoke of how he was grateful to DJ Zinhle, who has paved the way for female DJs to succeed.
“What a sweet, humble lady. As I was enjoying her set I could not stop thinking about what DJ Zinhle has done to the DJ industry. She's really the pioneer for women in the continent. Just thought I should give her the flowers here,” he wrote.
