DJ Black Coffee made a fan’s dream come true on Thursday when he agreed to record a song with her after she tweeted him.


Yoza Mnyanda, the 17 year old fan, took to Twitter to post a video of herself performing an incredible song at the University of Cape Town.

She later messaged Black Coffee to ask him how many retweets on the video she would need before he would consider working with her.

Black Coffee born Nkosinathi Maphumulo on 11 March 1976 is a South African record producer and DJ. He began his career around 1995 and has released five albums and a live DVD under his Johannesburg-based record label, Soulistic Music.

He is arguably the most prominent electronic music producer in Africa.

Black Coffee had his big break shortly after being chosen as a participant in the 2004 Red Bull Music Academy held in Cape Town.

In September 2015, he won the “Breakthrough DJ Of The Year” award at the DJ Awards in Ibiza,[6] a few weeks after the release of his fifth studio album, Pieces Of Me.

The talented artist responded a few minutes later by telling the fan that he would make it happen. He even tweeted ‘Soulistic Music’ to arrange studio tome for the two of them.

The awesome South African celebrity also tweeted an inspirational quote for other aspiring artist… Everything you want in Life is there waiting for you to get it…..all you need is to want it hard enough.
