DJ Black Coffee Makes History: Sells Out at Madison Square Garden

DJ Black Coffee delivered an unforgettable night for thousands of fans as he performed at New York’s prestigious Madison Square Garden. The highly anticipated event was completely sold out.

The 47-year-old DJ created history by becoming the first South African DJ and producer to perform at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.

He was supported by the amapiano twin duo, Major League DJz, and made special appearances alongside other notable South African artists including Oskido, Msaki, and Mondli Ngcobo.

Fans took to social media to express their admiration for Black Coffee’s performance and the pride he brought to South Africa. Comments praising his live remix of “Superman” with Bucie flooded platforms like Twitter.

The Instigator on X commended Black Coffee for not only his successful show but also for promoting other artists. The sentiment was echoed by many as they acknowledged his contribution to the South African music industry.

Some fans expressed their regret at missing the event, with one user posting about feeling a fear of missing out (FOMO).

However, the overall response was one of celebration and support for the DJ’s achievements.

While unable to attend the performance, Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Zizi Kodwa conveyed his apologies to Black Coffee for missing his groundbreaking show.

Kodwa expressed his admiration for the DJ’s journey and commended him for representing South Africa on a global scale. He acknowledged Black Coffee’s rise from the streets of Umlazi and Mthatha to renowned music arenas worldwide, emphasizing his inspirational impact on both young and old.

In April of this year, Black Coffee was honoured by the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture alongside other South African Grammy award winners for their exceptional achievements on the global stage.
