Black Coffee shared a post on social media in which he remembered his struggles and the helping hand he received from Oskido.

"15 years ago around this time, while struggling to pay for rent and to make ends meet, I was [unofficially] working on this remix of this gem by Thandiswa Mazwai, originally produced by the King Don Father, Spikiri Mandla.
"I didn’t really have a plan or a contact on how to submit it to the label so it could be official, but I continued to work on it with so much faith that these big artists will eventually hear it and approve it for release.
“Fast forward to a few months later, with the assistance of the legendary Oskido, who gave me my first recording deal for my album. My self-titled debut album was released in 2005."

Black Coffee isn't the only person who appreciates Oskido. reported earlier that DJ Zinhle decided to take a moment to show DJ Oskido that he means a lot to her.

The older muso has been supporting Zinhle in her career since the beginning and they've grown very close.

According to Zinhle, everyone who has Oskido in their lives should be grateful.
