Among the varied awards, one went to DJ Black Coffee in the ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’ category for his seventh studio album ‘Subconsciously’. The South African producer and singer, whose real name is Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, DJs plays every summer in Ibiza, at the Hï discotheque, and has become the club’s first resident DJ.

The Grammys got their usual sparkle back on Sunday for The Grammy he won early this morning is historic, as it is the first time a South African producer has won or been nominated in the award category. As he took to the stage in a smart white suit during the award ceremony, the artist said: “I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world and heal some souls.
This is by no means Black Coffee’s first accolade. He has won awards such as several SA Music Awards (Samas) and the Best Album award at the Dance Music Awards in 2019. In addition, Black Coffee and David Guetta took home the Clubbing TV award for Best Going Deep music video for ‘Drive’.
