Everything is falling into place for South African music producer and DJ, Black Coffee as he continues to raise the flag high. The DJ is getting set for another significant event that will skyrocket his career and cement his place on the international map.
Next week the DJ will make history in New York, as the first ever South African DJ to headline in Madison Square Gardens, New York.
In a press conference held at Altitude Beach in Fourways on Thursday ahead of his send-off party with Castle Lite, Black Coffee said he had not really thought of Madison Square.
He shared that getting to Madison Square was a dream come true for him as that had always been the plan.
He reflected on his journey and how his resilience helped shape his career, he also acknowledged that starting off music at an early age and when he kicked out was another factor that sprouted the journey
Black said there was no genre of music that he did not try as a greenhorn in the industry.
“Some people do not get to experience their calling and some are lucky enough to find their calling. I was one of those fortunate enough to find their calling at an early age. For me I think my story is written somewhere, I am just following God’s steps. It may seem like a miracle but it’s written somewhere in the universe,” said Black Coffee.
The Grammy Award winner said he tried to do things for the right reasons, and it was never for other people to try and figure out what his next move was for him.
“A friend of mine two weeks ago reminded me of a time when we took a train from Washington to New York. When we got to the station facing the arena at Maddison Square, he said I said to him one day I am going to perform here.”
Black Coffee will feature South African and African talent to support him on the world’s most iconic stage. Some of the artists who will be part of the show are Bucie, Msaki, Pansula & Ribatone, Shoba, and Mondli Ngcobo.
