DJ donates ticket sales profits to projects

FANS love to see their favorite celebrities use their talents to help underprivileged communities and those in need.

While internationally acclaimed and Grammy-nominated DJ Nkosinathi “Black Coffee” Maphumulo is not new to demonstrating humanitarian acts, he pulled out all the stops to organize his 46th birthday celebration with the aim of to giving back to those in need.

Profits from ticket sales for the night went to his charity, the Black Coffee Foundation.

The event was held at Altitude Beach in Fourways last weekend. The event was graced by entertainment industry VIPs such as Caiiro, DBN Gogo, Killamo, Zane Gulston, DJ Nel, DJ Toy and his son Esona.

The Black Coffee Foundation focuses on uplifting underprivileged and differently-abled people through long-term, education-focused initiatives geared towards fostering self-reliance, independence and social integration.

Lungi Maphumulo, the head of the Black Coffee Foundation, said: “Black Coffee is using his birthday to fund the foundation. It is about giving back. What better way than using his birthday.”

In 2020, the music star raised more than R400 000 in donations through weekly concerts to assist Covid-19 relief projects and small businesses hit by the pandemic.
