Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo has taken to social media to explain that Bonnie tendered her resignation in 2016 from his company Soulistic Music on the grounds that Amaru was constantly narcissistic, emotionally abusive and difficult to work with.
“In 2016 @sisboniswa tendered her resignation from my company on the grounds that Amaru was constantly narcissistic, emotionally abusive & difficult to work with. In 2018 Amaru and I were embroiled in a legal dispute which resulted in the termination of his employment,” wrote Black Coffee.
Black Coffee continued to say that he had no contract or any form of relations with Bonnie, citing that she went back to work with Amaru Da Costa.

Black Coffee said that he is still in a legal dispute with Amaru Da Costa, alluding to the fact that he has no relationship or friendship with Amaru and he does not speak on his behalf or for him.
“Bonnie I am sorry that you went through this ordeal, I am sorry that you couldn’t find the help and support you needed from the authorities but your tweets are misleading please state all the facts.
“You stopped working at Soulistic in 2016 after you told me you were not happy with Amaru’s treatment towards you and Amaru stopped working for me in 2018. Then you both started working together again on your own despite all you had said to me about his behavior.
“This is when the alleged rape happened when both of you were not working for me and when Amaru and I had a legal dispute and this you know. You also know I don’t have any kind of relationship with Amaru since 2018 since he stopped working for me,” explained Black Coffee.
Black Coffee has organized a Men and Boys Car Drive March against women murder, rape, abuse, and kidnapping – the march is scheduled for 09:00 (CAT) on Monday, starting from Nasrec to the Union Buildings.
Author Sihle Bolani started a thread opening a platform for everyone who has been subjected to Gender-Based-Violence to add their voices.
“Hello, @PresidencyZA (Cyril Ramaphosa). I’m Sihle. I’m 37. I’ve been raped. I’ve been sexually harassed so many times I’ve lost count. I‘ve even had a gun held to my head. When will you show up for us? If you’ve been subjected to GBV, please add your voice to this thread,” wrote Sihle Bolani, which followed by a lot of women opening up about their experiences when it comes to rape.
On Monday President Cyril Ramaphosa said that like all South Africans, he has been deeply disturbed by a surge over the last few days in the murder of young women at the hands of men.
“These are shocking acts of inhumanity that have no place in our society. Youth-led civic activism, awareness-raising, and peer counseling are vital tools in our efforts to eradicate gender-based violence from society. At the same time, we must strengthen our justice system, ensuring that perpetrators are brought to book, bail and parole conditions are tightened and that those sentenced to life spend the rest of their lives behind bars.
“While this needs society-wide action, I call on young men, in particular, to take up the struggle against gender-based violence. Unless we end the war that is being waged against South African women, the dream of a new society will remain elusive,” said Cyril Ramaphosa in a statement released from the Desk of The President [HERE].
