BlackCoffee set to play for 60 hours straight

BlackCoffee is undoubtedly one of South Africa’s best DJ’s not only that but he’s decided to take on a feat no normal man would be able to complete.

BlackCoffee kicks off he’s 60 hour set at midnight Maponya Mall ‘s parking lot in Soweto all in the name of a Guinness World book of records record.

The Guinness World Record attempt is to raise money for the Black Coffee Foundation, which helps disabled people. DJ Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo, says helping others is a cause close to his heart.

What will make the feat even more remarkable is that DJ Black Coffee lost the use of his left arm in an accident when he was 13.

"I will be setting a new record. No one has ever done this with one hand," he said.

Today DJ Black Coffee will host a gala dinner at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Rosebank from 6pm.

"There are three tables with 10 chairs and each chair costs R1000," he said.

Black Coffee said before he started playing, fellow DJs, among them his protégé Culoe De Song, DJ Ganyani and Mo Flava of Yfm, will entertain the expected revellers.

"The show is free and everyone is welcome - and please bring donations," he said.

The Black Coffee Foundation works with the Tumelo Home in Thembisa, the Disabled People of KwaThema and Noar's Ark in Orlando.

"We are starting small and will accept any donation, and not necessarily money, in our bid to assist the disabled," he said.

"The more I play the more I want people to donate money. I will play everything from kwaito to mid-tempo to house and other styles."

Come and support local music and of course BlackCoffee at Maponya Mall and make sure you rock out with your cock out for a good cause.
