- DJ Black Coffee has announced the line-up for his Music is King concert on Wednesday
- The line-up includes his old rival, AKA
- Black Coffee praised the rapper for his talents and said, "AKA is one of the most amazing artists on this continent"
It looks like DJ Black Coffee has let bygones by bygones, following his beef with rapper AKA three years ago, as he announced Supa Mega as part of his Music is King concert line-up.
Black Coffee announced the line-up for this year’s event on Wednesday and it includes Sjava, Moonchild, Nomuzi, Distruction Boyz, Muzi, Jazz Disciples, Samthing Soweto and UK muso, Tom Misch.
The Music is King show takes stage at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg on 14 December and at the Kings Park Outer Fields in Durban on 15 December.
According to TshisaLIVE, Black Coffee spoke to the media on Wednesday and said he selected artists who were unique and made amazing music. He added that the purpose of the concert was to celebrate music and unite the industry.
“It is not about who sells the most or who is cooler, it is about music. We are trying to create a melting pot of different kinds of music. Whether the artist is big or small, as long as we feel they will bring something to the line-up,”
Then the world-renowned DJ threw some love for rapper, AKA. He said: “AKA is one of the most amazing artists on this continent, so why not.”
The musos have had their fair share of beef over the years, though.
Black Coffee told Phat Joe on East Coast Radio in 2017 that their feud started after he made an appearance at the annual Channel O Music Awards and AKA tweeted, “Give Black Coffee a hand”.
DJ Black Coffee was touched and he reached out to AKA, who instead said his tweet was taken out of context.
The peace didn’t last long though. DJ Black Coffee said: “Two weeks later, he [AKA] did a song, where he mentioned that he is so dope that even Black Coffee claps for him.”
One thing led to another, with spicy exchanges on social media, and finally Black Coffee smacked one of AKA’s team members in September, 2016.
AKA in turn blasted Black Coffee on social media, calling his actions, “ignorant, distasteful and immature”.
Meanwhile, just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that American socialite, Paris Hilton, recently praised our hottest DJ, Black Coffee. She's one of many Hollywood stars who is crazy about the talented muso.
Black Coffee shared a short video of Paris saying she loves him and thinks he's the best and we don't blame him. If we had someone like her praising us we'd be showing the whole world too.
