From performing at Coachella this past weekend to being nominated for a Nickelodian Kids Choice Award, the deep- house DJ has had a metoric rise to fame, rubbing shoulders and collaborating with international superstars such as Alicia Keys and rapper Drake.
Safe to say Black Coffee – who’s real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo is making waves abroad while being affectionately welcomed into the big names of music – and fashion’s inner circle.
His latest venture boasts a partnership with Lous Vuitton’s newest menswear designer, streetwear maven and all-round creative genius, Virgil Abloh.

The music and fashion duo is set to collaborate on pop-up DJ sets where they will throw killer parties all around the world and DJ together side-by-side. The pair will rock up at different venues – including in South Africa, providing 2 hours of awesome beats, with the aim to unite people all around the world through the power of music.
Judging from the crowds Black Coffee draws when he plays on his own, we can’t imagine the the absolute pandemonium that will ensue when he rocks up with someone like Virgil Abloh on the decks.
One thing’s for sure, we HAVE to be at one of these parties when it arrives on our shores.
