Today, the man of the moment turns 43 years old and life has been nothing but a sweet journey for the super-star DJ and producer.
For a man who has achieved so much greatness, one can only wonder what Black Coffee wants for his 43rd birthday.
Maybe he wants a new car? A new house? New music equipment? But knowing Black Coffee, he probably just wants to continue to make people dance for years to come and put a smile on the faces of those that matter, his family.
See when you've achieved so much in life, you become grateful for the little things like being able to take your son to his cart-racing practice....
...or being able to travel the world with your wife.
Here are some of the reasons why we're celebrating Black Coffee's special day.
He was honoured as the Best Deep House DJ for the third year in a row at the DJ Awards last year.
In 2016 he was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the South African Music Awards.
He's also been honoured for a BET award and many other accolades that will make him go down in South African music history as one of the best artists to ever do it.
Happy 43rd birthday Black Coffee, please continue to be an inspiration to many young South Africans who aspire to chase their dreams unashamedly so like you have. Also, thank you for the music, here's to another year of making magic.
