His post, however did not go down well with social media users and many felt that the musician was jealous of the attention Zakes was getting:

One particularly unimpressed user named @phethani4 said:

“Black Coffee must leave us alone.. He decided to make music for Europeans, let Zakes Bantwini take over. He is not the alpha and omega of house music in the country. To paraphrase the late president Mugabe let coffee keep his Ibiza we will keep our kunye, house 22 etc. Hands off!”

Many other Mzansi peeps shared the same sentiments.
