Durban born and eastern cape breed Nkosinathi Maphumulo also known as black coffee has put south Africa on the map both on a national and global arena. the song writer ,producer and performer is taking the world by storm and this as many presume is only the beginning
This music genius gives us yet another album taken from his Africa rising concert which he hosted in Moses Mabida stadium on the 16th of December 2011 for charity reasons simply blows us away.The triple disc DVD that offers us a mix of classic music from the orchestra featured , a taste of old school music with Moses Ngwenya playing the organ and a live band feel ,the DVD is a pure surprise .
While many will agree to the fact that black coffee is talented one can never get the same thing twice from him proving that educated musicians are a force to be reckoned with. The DVD which features artist such as Zakes Bantwini, Soul-star,Bucie ,Oskido and Alexander James just to mention a few allowing us music from all walks of life .
The album is better than his previous work and not only that its different from his normal line or trend of music ,this artist who is breaking new ground in South African house music . The art work which was done for purely charitable reasons is an expression of his personal interest and the way in which he delivers his performances is absolutely breath taking.
Black coffee is said to be the only South African DJ at the standard he is in at the moment and finds himself competing against the likes of Swedish house mafia and DJ fresh and euphonic . This DJ has hit the world stage by storm with songs like you rock my world by Soul-star and superman ft Bucie ,juju ft Zakes Bantwini and the classic we are one featuring music veteran Hugh Masekela.
This DVD is awesome for a night in with a mate and dance on the rug in front of the TV ,a night out with friends or if you are in the mood for great music than black coffee is the guy for you .
