Naledi Aphiwe cashes in $3,000 from Chris Brown sample. Chris Brown paid Naledi Aphiwe $3K. 

Naledi Aphiwe plans to buy a new phone and fix her mother's grave with her earnings from a Chris Brown sample.

When international superstar Chris Brown shared a video of Naledi Aphiwe singing on his Instagram stories in October 2022, gushing over how “incredible” her voice was, the 17-year-old quickly shot up trends lists.

Little did she know a year later she would be sampled on the R&B singer's 11th studio album 11:11 on a song titled Shooter, cashing in $3,000 R56,207) to kick-start her career.

“Everyone at home can sing. We grew up singing. My siblings are a bit scared. They don't want anything that will harm me but they are very supportive and advise me about the music industry and the things I will face.”

School is the priority for the grade 11 Khethokuhle Secondary pupil, and she is grateful for the support of her isiZulu and life orientation teacher Thami Bhengu, who encouraged her on her path. 

“I was in my classroom during examinations but that day we were not doing anything. We were bored. We decided to sing and our class teacher came inside. We were scared he would shout so when he entered we kept quiet but he told us to carry on. When we sang he took his phone and made a clip. If it was not for my teacher I wouldn't be able to fulfil my dreams.

“I do well at school. Because I do well I can juggle both. I've always wanted to be a singer."
