During the podcast, Rowland shared her admiration for the DJ, saying,

“There is this really cool DJ out right now, her name is Uncle Waffles. And she has got so much personality. She is from Africa, Nigeria, South Africa, I can’t think of where exactly, but she is so cool. She just played at Coachella, but I have known about this girl for at least about a year now.”

Social Media Roasts Kelly Rowland for Not Knowing DJ Uncle Waffles’ Nationality Despite Knowing Her For A Year

While many celebrated Uncle Waffles’ international recognition and Kelly Rowland’s acknowledgement of her talent, some social media users expressed disappointment and took issue with Kelly Rowland’s uncertainty regarding Uncle Waffles’ specific origin, considering she claimed to have known about her for over a year.

The reactions varied from light-hearted teasing to mild frustration, with some suggesting that Rowland should have familiarized herself with Uncle Waffles’ background, especially if she admired her for an extended period. Others used the opportunity to highlight the importance of understanding Africa’s diversity and dispelling the misconception that Africa is a single country.
