First South African DJ to headline Madison Square, Black Coffee, has announced the line up for his iconic performance slated for October 7, 2023 at his ultimate send-off party.
In a surprise instagram post, the celebrated South African DJ shared the news with millions of his followers.
Black Coffee is the most recent African to headline the venue and would join a growing list of African artistes who have performed at the Madison Square namely Burna Boy, and Wizkid.
Born Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, Black Coffee expressed a lot of excitement about the upcoming gig.
“Today’s announcement is one of those that just becomes difficult to put into words,” Black Coffee said.
“As a performer sharing a stage that has hosted some of the greatest artists from all different genres and backgrounds just makes it all so real! I’m completely honored to make my Madison Square Garden debut in 2023!”
For many artistes, a Madison Square Garden appearance is the pinnacle of their career, a sort of crowning achievement for the work that they have put into perfecting their craft.
Black Coffee had been at the forefront of pushing dance music to the public, and this development marks his continued relevance in the music space.
With a career that spans almost three decades, Black Coffee continues to refine his sound and redefine what is considered music that Africans can make, and a Madison Square Garden appearance might just be more proof that his formula is working.
In a previous conversation with Billboard last year, Black Coffee said that he was honoured to represent his country on the global stage.
“There is so much incredible talent coming not only from South Africa, but coming from the African continent as a whole, and being able to bring our culture to these types of platforms only opens the window of opportunity further and further for all of these incredible acts,” Black Coffee said.
