K.O. & Uncle Waffles Nominated For BET Awards 2023

It is a season of blessings for South African musicians K.O. and Uncle Waffles, both of whom have just scored BET nominations. But it appears to be more significant for Uncle Waffles because she is a newbie of sorts on the music scene.

For the BET Awards 2023, K.O. was nominated in the Best International Act category. In a post on his verified Twitter page, he shared a flyer of the nomination while expressing gratitude. He informed his fans there was no option for nomination on Twitter, so the best they can do is to pray for his success. You can check out his tweet below.

Interestingly, another South African, UUncle Waffles, was also nominated in the same category. And she was just as excited about her nomination. “This is crazy,” she shared with her 1.9 million followers on Instagram. Apparently, she had not expected the nomination. But here she is.

While K.O. is a veteran of sorts with about two decades in South Africa’s music industry, Uncle Waffles is a newbie who blew up after a clip of her vibing to a song by amapiano singer Young Stunna went viral. Since then she has managed to remain in the consciousness of the public.

It remains to be seen who will actually win the award among those nominated.
