Black Twitter Roasts Black Coffee For His Performance In Israel. World’s Renowned DJ and Businessman Nkosnathi ‘Black Coffee’ Maphumulo has fallen victim to black twitter attacks after he announced his performance in Israel.
Like most of his gigs the DJ posted a clip of him giving fans from Israel a dazzling performance, while others were proud of him once more others expressed their disappointments at him for performing in a country they believe to be anti-black people, also to the oppressive laws in Israel and to the killings of Palestinians.
Followers accused Black Coffee of ignoring recent calls to boycott Israel by the BDS South Africa (a registered South African NPO and PBO).
They have imposed an academic and cultural boycott and called for all artists, academics, philosophers and cultural practitioners to refuse to participate in any activities, conferences, concerts, exhibitions or any other related field in the country which is being boycotted.
EFF member Floyd Shivambu also added his voice to the raging debate.
“South Africa’s isolation and the academic & cultural boycott are part of the reasons apartheid capitulated to the call for freedom. It is morally & politically insensitive for DJ Black Coffee to just go on partying in apartheid Israel, whilst it kills & oppresses innocent people,” he said.
Floyd was supported by many others, who said Black Coffee was being “irresponsible” as a public figure.
