Will Linley's 'miss me (when you're gone)' has been named the new No. 1 Kfm Top 40 song, surpassing Adele's hit 'Easy on Me'.
Released in October 2021, the track quickly gained popularity on TikTok after the young Cape Town artist teased it to his growing audience.
Naturally, this caught the attention of Carl Wastie, who made sure to debut the song on the Kfm Top 40 show.
Soon Darren Simpson joined the bandwagon and invited the 20-year-old former Bishops student on to the Kfm Mornings breakfast show.

This past weekend (Saturday, 11 December 2021), Carl Wastie calls up the Cape Town artist and blindsided him with the incredible news.
