Andile on Tuesday created shock waves on social media, with his announcement that he would be performing in America, in Miami, specifically at the Legendz of The Streetz Tour.

Yes, Andile is a musician; he has four songs under his belt.

The Umcimbi hitmaker will be performing at the event, which has some of the biggest names in rap performing, such as Rick Ross, 2Chainz, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Fabolous and Trina.

Andile described being chosen to perform as a "lifetime opportunity" for which he is "so grateful" for.

The 20-year-old performing at the Legendz of The Streetz Tour 2022 is certainly a big deal, as this is the first time a local artist has opened as an international act at the event.

Andile posted the poster for the event on his Instagram page and also gave his followers a teaser of his latest song Ubala.

Andile's mother, businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize, is certainly proud of her son's latest achievement and made sure to make it known with her "America here we come" comment on his post.

While MaMkhize may be rejoicing over Andile's achievement some social media users are raising their eyebrows at the moment.

Andile landing the international gig is a surprise especially considering how young his music career is. Yes, he has had a few trending moments but he is yet to drop a chart-topping track.

@RealMrumaDrive said on Twitter that Andile performing at the US gig was an indication that money can buy a person almost anything.

Media personality Khuli Roberts however had some words of encouragement for the young artist on how to deal with the naysayers.
