DJ Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo says the country has adopted what has been happening and as a country that has a past as terrible as ours we haven’t sat down and said to ourselves who are we.outh Africa’s internationally renowned
As a guest at the South African Investment Conference which ends today, DJ Black Coffee says that, “We were told before who we were and it worked for the people who told us to a certain extent, and we are in a space now where I feel like we can restructure somethings.
“We don’t have to dismantle everything because some things are working but we need to be in a space where we ask ourselves how many management degrees do we need from these kids…”
DJ Black Coffee further says that he’s just a DJ, he doesn’t have all the answers. His narrative is about as a country, what are we good at? What do we have to offer to the world, which points to the reasons for investment by global investors?
“The most creative artist is the artist that is free (free, meaning an artist who owns the rights to their work)!”
He says as South Africa, we need to have a ‘family meeting’, to discuss “who are we? Not who we were told we are/were,” says DJ Black Coffee.
Black Coffee has been emphasising to the global community that Africa is not a jungle and there’s a lot it can offer to the world as a Continent.
Africa Is Not A Jungle will launch at Altitude Beach, in Fourways this Sunday, featuring Da Capo, Jullian Gomes, Lemon & Herb, Kid Fonque and Trancemissoul.
Africa Is Not A Jungle will host the Black Coffee 2019/2020 tour, which starts this Sunday and runs until April 2020.
