Five times Black Coffee showed us he has made it in life

It is no doubt that DJ Black Coffee has been flying the South African flag high and earning respect from the biggest international stars while doing so.

Last year he showed us that he is the biggest act in Africa, when he won the Best International Act: Africa Award and he has proved that many times with the number of international accolades he has been collecting.

Collaborating with international stars

If you think that Black Coffee is only big in Africa, think again! The House DJ has been in demand, scoring collaborations with the international musicians such as Alicia Keys and Drake. Last year Black Coffee was topping the charts with his collaboration with Alicia Keys "In Common" and he recently worked with Drake on the song "Get It Together".

Friends in high places

If they say, "show us who your friends are and we will tell you where you are heading in life", then Black Coffee's future is bright! Black Coffee is close friends with Sean "P Diddy" Combs and he was also invited to P Diddy's most popular party where only the elite attend.

Taking his friends to the top with him

Black Coffee took his long time friends, DJ Fresh and Euphonik and a few others to P Diddy's party and they had nothing but praise for him, so as the rest of the country.
"Not only am I proud of you, but also blown away by how you have allowed your humility to guide you even as you soar to DJ heights never before achieved by a Mzansi DJ," DJ Fresh said after spending a weekend with him at Diddy's party.

His humility

The norm is that when people make it they forget about others, but Black Coffee still has time for people who are still trying to make it! This comes after an upcoming musician from Cape Town approached him on Twitter and asked if he could work with her on her song and to everyone's surprise he agreed! Black Coffee made Yoza Myanda's dream come true.

Paving the way for the youth

Black Coffee is working on starting a Fashion Art and Music Academy. He said his goal is to cultivate the talent in an African child and also create jobs.
