What a memorable moment for Black Coffee as he came out victorious when he won the Grammy. He was up against Illenium (Fallen Embers), Major Lazer for Music is the Weapon (Reloaded), Marshmello for Shockwave and Sylvan Esso for Free Love.

Walking up with his plus one, Esona Maphumulo, Coffee got greeted with screams from every one in the crowd as he took home the Grammy award,  "Wow, I don't even know what to say. I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world and heal some souls. And to be able to help people deal with whatever they are going through in life.

"I wanna thank my team...not going to be able to mention them all. I wanna thank everyone who was in the album, from Msaki in South Africa, to David Guetta who had believed in working with the smaller artists like myself, and for trusting me and trusting my year.

"I wanna thank my fans and people who follow what I do all over the world, I wanna thank my family and I wanna thank my children," he says as he introduces his first born son Esona to an enthusiastic crowd.

Fans from all over Mzansi congratulated grootman and he too is in disbelief.
Black Coffee joins the league of artists who have either won or have been nominated for the Grammys including, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Soweto Gospel Choir and Wouter Kellerman.

When he was nominated, a lot of people congratulated him including RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi who said, β€œIt is a proud moment for South Africans to see one of our own shine so brightly on some of the biggest stages of the world. A Grammy nomination is a recognition Black Coffee deserves fully and it’s already a win for the house and dance music genre that South Africa is known for the world over. We have witnessed his rise in the industry and know how far he has come with his music. We send our best wishes to Black Coffee and will be cheering him on as he takes on the best of the best in his category.
 
β€œWouter Kellerman’s third Grammy nomination is testament of his consistency and craftsmanship. We are proud of how he is flying the South African flag and showing the world just how diverse our talent is. We are in awe of his success and we have no reason to doubt that he will bring home a Grammy next year when the winners are announced.”
