‘Men Curated Uncle Waffles’ Career’ Prince Kaybee Ruffles Feathers With Bold Claims
South African DJ and producer Prince Kaybee recently sparked controversy by claiming that men curated the career of famous female DJ Uncle Waffles. The rising star shot to fame after a viral video of her dancing and spinning decks to the tune of Adiwele caught the attention of many. However, Prince Kaybee’s comment on a clip of Waffles dancing with Ciara brought to light the question of whether her success resulted from men behind the scenes.
I remember a discourse dictum stocking up that there’s too many men managing her, the hate was appalling beyond comprehension.
What a successful career these men have curated. https://t.co/vUNHNIC6wA
