On Tuesday DJ Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo, landed at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg from Las Vegas in the US and was welcomed by fans, industry colleagues, and family members. This follows his Grammy award win.
At the 2022 Grammys, Black Coffee won his first-ever Grammy Award, earned in the best dance/electronic album category, with his 2021 LP, Subconsciously.
The win marks the first time a South African producer has won or been nominated in this category.
He received a hero’s welcome, and as soon as the doors in the international arrivals area opened, the crowd erupted in loud cheers to welcome him home.
The renowned DJ said he was overwhelmed and couldn’t put into words what he was feeling.
