The internationally recognized DJ/producer celebrated this achievement with a Tweet, to point out his gratitude for coming in at number 13 for the choice Top 100 DJs list. The list is compiled by combining votes within the Top 100 DJs poll with house and techno sales data from Beatport, so as to showcase an inventory of the highest house/techno DJs within the world.
Black Coffee may have used the worldwide lockdown as a time to relax and re-centre himself, given his extremely busy schedule and rather specialise in the important things in life like his health, making music, and family. The dynamic artist still found a chance to release the large single ‘Ready For You’ on Ultra Music, featuring the vocals of Celeste, and live-streamed a DJ performance from the planet Heritage Site, Sterkfontein Caves in South Africa, where human fossils many years old are found. He also played for EXIT festival’s LifeStream, 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 performing on for years, and through lockdown, I had time to consider getting it out there. It’s basically a platform that I would like to launch and help the music scene on the African continent. Our market is Africa first before we will consider the planet. 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 together with his long-time friend and fellow producer, DJ Tira, along side controversial musician Sjava.
The Kwazulu Natal Entertainment Awards are going to be persisted 15th of December 2020 at the Durban International Convention Centre, where the province’s top achievers are going to be awarded achievement trophies and cash prizes. All category winners will reportedly walk off with R100 000 and therefore the overall winner R500 000 in cold cash.
It’s little question that he keeps representing us on a worldwide scale which his success has been amazing to observe over the past decade. Despite his many issues in his personal life, Black Coffee is unmatched in his business life, and that we are here for it.
