While it's not as big as O2 Wembley or as grand as Abbey Road, O2 Brixton is right up there with the UK's most important concert venues. It is widely respected in the music industry and while selling out a big stadium is always grand, playing and selling out O2 Brixton is seen to be just as important a feat for both local and international artists.
So imagine our excitement when we learned that one of our very own had just managed the task of selling out the world-famous venue which has hosted the likes of Ed Sheeran, Damien Marley, N.E.R.D, Madonna, and even an anti-apartheid concert back in 1986 which was headlined by The Smiths.
Fast Forward to 2019 and it's now the time of Mzansi's child and future interior designer, Black Coffee to put his name on the venue's historic list. After a successful Music is King concert, the DJ is now back on the international circuit:
It seems as if Black Coffee's successful run is not about to end. This announcement was made shortly after it was revealed that the film he executive produced, Matwetwe, had just pulled R3 million in local cinemas.
The film's director, Kagiso Lediga, couldn't hide his delight on Twitter. He's previously said:
"We are already blown away by the response from people. It has done so well. It has doubled its screens and I think there will be one or two more cinemas debuting this week. It is about taking the film to places like Witbank. It is doing well in Mafikeng and even in Botswana."
It seems like everything Black Coffee touches turns to gold! No wonder he was able to build his mother a beach house. Who in the UK is going to watch his new show?
