The 17-year-old singer from KZN experienced a rapid ascent to stardom after capturing the attention of international sensation Chris Brown.
Back in October 2022, Chris Brown showcased Aphiwe’s extraordinary talent by sharing a video of her singing on his Instagram stories, commending her “incredible” voice. Little did Aphiwe know that this acknowledgment would pave the way for an even more significant opportunity.
Fast forward a year, and her talent not only resonated across social media but also secured a spot on Chris Brown’s 11th studio album, “11:11,” in a track titled “Shooter.”
Naledi didn’t just receive a shout-out for her singing; her voice became an integral part of Chris Brown’s latest song. Beyond the recognition, Aphiwe also earned $3,000 (R56,207) for her contribution to the track “Shooter,” providing a significant financial boost that could potentially propel her budding music career to new heights.
