The public is at war of words with regards to Black Coffee's recent performance in what is termed Israel's apartheid state - Tel-Aviv.
When Black Coffee posted a video of his sold-out show in Tel-Aviv yesterday an onslaught of criticism towards him ensued from the public.
EFF politician - Floyd Shivambu was one of the few politicians who went online to voice his criticism towards the House DJ.
South Africa’s isolation and the Academic & Cultural boycott are part of the reasons Apartheid capitulated to the call for freedom. It is morally & politically insensitive for DJ Black Coffee to just go on partying in Apartheid Israel, whilst it kills & oppresses innocent people.— Floyd Shivambu (@FloydShivambu) April 2, 2018
More individuals who were not impressed with Black Coffee's performance continued to voice their opinion throughout the day. The debate began on Sunday.
Black Coffee is oscillating between arrogance and feigned innocence. It's actually pathetic that a grown person who has been so supported by people in this country, would choose to behave this way. Trash.— Petty LaBelle* 🐼 (@PearlPillay) April 1, 2018
Black Coffee legit can't feign ignorance over playing in Tel-Aviv. We live in the age of access to information, the man is well travelled & is an active Twitter user. At some point he would have come across the Zionists murder agenda. From a SA'n no less? Cuts to the bone.— the fearless self ✨ (@Msomifaya) April 1, 2018
By Monday afternoon, Black Coffee went online to defend himself with regards to his performance by simply stating that he is just earning a living for his family.
But then one Twitter user dug out this quote from what is alleged to be Black Coffee's response to why he boycotted a performance in Swaziland.
However, as much as Black Coffee was criticized he also received a lot of support from others.
Whilst others decided to take a humorous approach to the entire debate.
Did you even consider that maybe Black Coffee went to Israel to celebrate that Jesus has risen, in the country where Jesus once walked? pic.twitter.com/b8AuNU7flY— Gugu Ndabezitha (@GuguNdabezitha) April 2, 2018
In 2017 on his trip to Israel - Mandla Mandela referred to Israel as "the worst apartheid regime" and he was even reported to have requested for South Africa to cut all ties with "apartheid Israel."
