South African DJ and producer Uncle Waffles has recently released an album entitled “Asylum”, which consists of seven songs that highlight the artist's versatility and collaborations with other musicians.
It's clear that in the world of Waffles, light and dark coexist, and she's determined to discover new layers of her art with melancholic and thoughtful rhythms, driven by catchy movies and emerging talent from South Africa and elsewhere.Meanwhile, Uncle Waffles will release an exclusive song with Audiomack called “Khumbula” for the campaign, and the preview can be heard in the promotion of its promotional video Upnow. Since its release, the viral video that propelled Uncle Waffles to fame on Instagram has been viewed more than 6.5 million times. Uncle Waffles will represent the platform's emerging artist program in a variety of musical genres, including hip hop, R&B and Amapiano, on a global scale.
It will also hand over the baton to rising South African rapper, Scumie, who raps in circles around the DJ with a menacing rhythm that conveys a deep sense of depth with every word. Lungelihle Zwane (born March 30, 2000), known professionally as Uncle Waffles, is a Swaziland-born DJ and record producer who lives in South Africa. In a short time, Waffles has grown to become the almost perfect personification of what the global sound of South African neighborhoods can do and be on the verge of one of the most exciting times to be a novice artist and DJ. With each passing day and each new release, it becomes clear that Uncle Waffles is getting closer and closer to the jewels in Amapiano's crown and to the power that he is.
Born Lungelihle Zwane, the DJ from Eswatini is expanding the notoriety and reach of South Africa's Amapian movement on the world map, set by set, as it sells out in theaters in Africa and elsewhere. Each new Uncle Waffles production brings something unexpected, and social media highlights its contagious personality, incredible dance moves and radically modern approach.
