Sego Pumpkin or DJ Waffles: Who is the best young female DJ in Mzansi in 2021?

When the year started, a young energetic female DJ popped up in the entertainment arena threatening to send senior DJ to retirement. Sego Pumpkin as her stage name goes who is 21 years old was booked by almost all promoters, moving from one venue to another while collecting big bucks leaving revelers asking for more.

Slowly but surely she grew her brand and managed to stay out of controversy especially when you consider her age. But it wasn't all about discipline, Sego Pumpkin was lucky to be mentored by Kelly Khumalo and other public figures. The invaluable experience of Kelly made sure that the young DJ avoid the mistake that kills many careers - ego after fame.

So far it has paid off as she is managing to line up weekend events and in some cases hosting all alone but she is now facing new competition in another young female DJ -- enter Uncle Waffles.

DJ Uncle Waffles is slowly becoming a household name in Mzansi. When she was thrust into the spotlight a couple of months ago her signature song was Adiwele by Youngstunna ft Kabza De Small and it took Mzansi by storm. After the hype around the beautiful young DJ died down, many people started to question whether or not she actually could work for the decks. A lot of people accused her of taking advantage of the popular local song Adiwele.

Uncle Waffles was mentored by a DJ called Stunner during the lockdown of last year. Speaking to Sunday Times, Uncle Waffles said day in and day out during lockdown I’d go to a studio and practice. I would record my mixes to listen to my mistakes and work to improve on those. It took almost a year for me to gain enough confidence to take bookings.

She is from Eswatini and was born and raised there. She came to South Africa for better opportunities in the creative industry and luckily it worked out well for her. She is also verified on Twitter and also followed by the biggest rapper in the world -- Drake
