Rapper Cassper Nyovest and amapiano star Kamo Mphela have come forward to defend Uncle Waffles from the online hate she have been receiving.
The viral star became famous when her video playing “Adiwele” by Young Stunna during her set came out.
While she initially received positive response, that quickly changes, with some online users saying she only blew due to pretty privilege and more recently that she’s stealing from Stunna.
Cassper said: “Uncle Waffles didn’t mean for her video to even trend, she was doing what she loved & she did it with such passion that we all fell in love with her.
“Week in, week out yall talking sh*t about the poor girl. Next week yall tweeting depression is real. Let her have her moment!!!”
Kamo Mphela also hit out against known online troll Slik Talk, who said that Waffles was “pretty with no talent.
“He needs to stop hating on women who are more successful than his existence. What a waste of sperm,” said Mphela.
However, Stunna appreciates the viral star’s contribution to the song’s success, and in a video posted online expressed his happiness that Adiwele has managed to open doors for him and Waffles.
