Black Coffee Under Fire For Performing in Israel


Black Coffee is currently the most talked about person in South Africa at the moment after he performed at a show in Israel. Politicians, other celebrities and commentators have joined the fray after the musician, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo, performed on Saturday at Gan Ha-Slaim (The Rocks Garden) in Tel Aviv, Israel. Tel Aviv is termed Israel’s apartheid state.

Black Coffee responded to backlashes online saying he is not a political party and he did what he had to do to feed his family. He wrote on social media, “Like everyone else I have rights and free will and no Black Coffee is not a political party…I work as an entertainer to feed my Family.
To sum it up….I’ll take a bullet for my Family,”

He proceeded to share other shows he will be having this month with the popular DJ billed to perform in Naples, Italy tonight.

Black Coffee also performed in Israel,  a country that South Africa’s ruling ANC has made statements against regarding its treatment of Palestinians in 2015.
