If you have ever doubted his legendary status, then think again because Nkosinathi Maphumulo AKA Black Coffee is musical force to be reckoned with. He has once again made the DJ Mag Top 100 and in fashionable Black Coffee style, he is always somewhere in the top 20 if not top 10.

The internationally recognised DJ/producer celebrated this achievement with a Tweet, to show his gratitude for coming in at number 13 for the Alternative Top 100 DJs list. The list is compiled by combining votes in the Top 100 DJs poll with house and techno sales data from Beatport, in order to showcase a list of the top house/techno DJs in the world.

Black Coffee may have used the global lockdown as a time to relax and re-centre himself, given his extremely busy schedule and rather focus on the important things in life like his health, making music and family. The dynamic artist still found an opportunity to release the huge single ‘Ready For You’ on Ultra Music, featuring the vocals of Celeste, and live-streamed a DJ performance from the World Heritage Site, Sterkfontein Caves in South Africa, where human fossils millions of years old have been found. He also played for EXIT festival’s Life Stream, which asked viewers to donate to the UN World Food Programme.

Meanwhile, Black Coffee continued to develop his new streaming platform, which he says will launch soon. 

“It’s something I’ve been working on for years, and during lockdown, I had time to concentrate on getting it out there. It’s basically a platform that I want to launch and help the music scene on the African continent. Our market is Africa first before we can concentrate on the world. Look out for GongBox!"

The DJ seems to be winning this year despite everything and he even managed to launch the Kwa-Zulu Natal Entertainment awards with his log-time friend and fellow producer, DJ Tira, together with controversial musician Sjava.

The Kwazulu Natal Entertainment Awards will be held on 15th of December 2020 at the Durban International Convention Centre, where the provinces top achievers will be awarded achievement trophies and cash prizes. All category winners will reportedly walk away with R100 000 and the overall winner R500 000 in cold hard cash.

It's no doubt that he keeps representing us on a global scale and that his success has been amazing to watch over the past decade. Despite his many issues in his persona life, Black Coffee is unmatched in his professional life and we are here for it.
