Young Stunna easily has one of the biggest Amapiano songs in the country. The talented musician might have hundreds of thousands of followers but he still struggles to view himself as a full-on celebrity.
All it took for Young Stunna to shoot to the top was the release of his single Adiwele. SowetanLIVE reports that the 21-year-old musician made trending charts when his album Notumato dropped. Adiwele alone reached over a million streams on music platforms.
TimesLIVE reports that Stunna never expected to reach this level of fame so quickly. Speaking to the publication he said that in his career plan, he only expected to reach this level of success in the next decade. He said:
"It's very tiring. It takes a lot of hard work, I still need to get used to it. Apparently, it's going to get worse. But it feels good. I thought it was going to take some time for me to get noticed, maybe in my late twenties."

Young Stunna rises to fame swiftly, overcome with gratitude as his dreams come true
Thanks to Kabza De Small, Young Stunna was able to drop his debut album Notumato which has received a lot of international attention.
Having started making music when he was just 13, becoming a household name has been Young Stunna’s lifelong dream. Knowing that top artists like Drake have heard his music seems surreal to the young artist.
