Mzansi star, DJ Black Coffee is arguably one of the most successful artists to grace local soil. The Grammy-award-winning DJ has made a name for himself internationally and has worked with stars like Drake and David Guetta.

Naturally, his booking rates have gone up and now sit at a whopping R5.5 million according to numerous reports.

47-year-old Black Coffee is somewhat of a household name here in South Africa.

Losing an arm in a taxi accident in 1990 did not stop him from collecting multiple accolades over the years; 8 SAMA, 4 DJ Awards, 2 Metro FM Awards, and 1 Grammy award.

Pretty soon the DJ was getting international recognition and has worked with Canadian-born US-based rapper Drake.
