Presenter @DaksOnline took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Uncle Waffles’s performance.

“Uncle Waffles’ set was like playing music in the car,” said @DaksOnline. His “review” of Uncle Waffles’s set did not sit well with her fans.

In response to one tweep, @DaksOnline explained that amapiano is loved in the UK, but it's just that his first time seeing Uncle Waffles performing was not great.
