Yes, whenever the name Black Coffee is mentioned in corridors everything stops in honour of ‘We Dance Again’ fame DJ, in recognition for flying the South African flag high on the international stage. His biography is also on its way.

This time, he will be accompanied on stage by his live band (backing vocalists, percussionist and keyboardist) for the very first time.

Born Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo- Black Coffee admitted to this reporter earlier this year that he was ‘working on a band’ but this soon, clearly he stood to his words.

DJ Black Coffee has hit back at suggestions that his request to have Brazilian author Paulo Coelho write a biography was a racial issue, telling fans that he did not have time to entertain such accusations.

He shares the stage on Saturday (October 7) with Common and diva Thandiswa Mazwai.

On Sunday, 8 the Witbank born bra Hugh Masekela takes over the stage alongside Omar, Alexander O’Neal, Imagination feat Leee John and Nigerian Femi Kuti.

“The involvement of African acts at the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is important to us. The opportunity for visitors to experience 3 globally recognized African artists over one weekend is a critical part of DStv’s endorsement of local, African content.

The DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is truly South African, and this is why we have become the only event to be a member of the Proudly South African campaign,” commented Nomsa Mazibuko, Group Head of Marketing at MultiChoice.

More than 40 000 food and music aficionados are expected to grace the fest, whose big emphasis is on food, with a large number of food trucks featuring fare from all over the world. The longest will be trucks that would offer old favourites – massive burgers, ribs and chicken wings.

Diva of note. Thandiswa Mazwai shares the stage with Nigerian Femi Kuti.

“This year our aim is to surpass the success of 2016 – we want to thank the pubic for their great support.
