Uncle Waffles, Pabi Cooper, Tyla and Focalistic found themselves on the firing line recently after a Twitter user insinuated that they are as talentless as can be imagined. This claim led to a great debate on the platform as tweeps weighed in.
If you are a keen follower of South African music, you probably already know that some of the names mentioned are seen as among the key names in the industry, almost always buzzing/ But it appears there are those who are unimpressed with the creative sinews exhibited by these musicians.
Controversy started after a Twitter user known simply as Atang described Uncle Waffles as talentless. Another Twitter user has reposted with a comment pointing out that the likes of Focalistic, Pabi Cooper and a couple of others fall into the same talentless category.
The claim provoked a hot debate online, with core fans of the artists mentioned supporting them in the replies, and the critics holding their ground. You can check out the post below.

The conversation about having talent and not having talent has been around for as long as we can remember, and it is doubtful it will go away anytime. In particular, Uncle Waffles’s critics have given her a timeline to vanish from relevance. But she is still out there flying.
