South African DJ Black Coffee Edges Jimmy Jatt & Other DJs To Become First African Host On Beats 1 Radio


Talented South African DJ Black Coffee is set to become the first African act to host a Beats 1 radio show. When his show launches on Friday, the Durban-born house DJ and record producer will be following in the footsteps of Pharrell Williams and Dr Dre.Apple-owned Beats 1 radio is a worldwide, online music streaming platform, and DJ Black Coffee – whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo says he’ll bring a distinctly African flavour to the station: “The first thing you think is that you’re going to only hear house music or South African music on my show, but what we’re trying to do is to really expose people to me. As in, what do I love as this is my show? What inspires me musically? So it’s different sides and genres.”Photo Credit: Getty
