Uncle Waffles, star DJ nominated for two Grammy Awards, Reaches Amapiano Royalty
The female DJ is vying for two awards: “Best African Music Performance” and “Best Global Music Album.”
She revealed that she has been nominated for the 66th Grammy Awards on Instagram.
Yahyuppiyah is competing for Best African Music Performance, while her album “Asylum” is a contender for “Best Global Music Album.”
Waffles began her Instagram post by expressing gratitude for her prosperous year as a global DJ.
“It’s been an amazing year; I’ve played 100+ international shows this year alone, and I’m so grateful for everything that continues to happen in my life,” she wrote in a post.
The 23-year-old, whose real name is Lungelihle Zwane, made her musical debut in 2021 when a social media video of her performing at a club went viral. She has since continued to release music and attracted the interest of celebrities like Drake and Ciara.
“Today marks the 2-year anniversary since my life changed, and I’m in awe at what has happened since,” she posted on Instagram.
The 66th Grammy Awards will be held on February 4, 2024. They will take place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.
Uncle Waffles also celebrated being on the cover of Forbes Africa.
“What do I even say, how do I explain that I’m on the @forbesafrica cover. God, thank you for always choosing me. This journey continues to be a journey of the impossible, and this is still only the beginning. Thank you for loving on me my babies. Thank you so much! IM ON FORBES, BABYYYYY,” she wrote on Instagram on September 29.
