WATCH: Uncle Waffles Shares How She Started Her DJ Career

Lungelihle Zwane, also known as “Uncle Waffles,” is reveling in the success of a career she never expected to pursue.

Since becoming famous in 2021 after a video of her dancing to Young Stunna’s Adiwele went viral, many people have wondered how the amapiano star got her start in the music industry.

In an interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Nigeria, Uncle Waffles claimed she learned to DJ during the pandemic and was soon booked and busy after falling in love with the profession.

“I started DJing two years ago during the pandemic; it was an eye opening time for everyone so I took the time to learn, initially just learning to DJ because I had time on my hands. I started learning, then the love came.”

2022 could easily be dubbed “the year of Uncle Waffles” with the many strides she’s been taking in and beyond the borders of Mzansi.

While the Tanzania hitmaker is now completing her US tour, she announced she bagged a major collaboration with KFC South Africa which introduces a new meal — a crispy KFC fillet dunked in maple chipotle sauce served between two warm waffles.

The Uncle Waffles meal will be exclusively launched from December 8 to 18 at Kentucky Town, Durban.
