DJ Black Coffee gave his state of the nation's music industry address and best believe he said it straight.
After being in the industry for so many years and having achieved things some artists only dream of, Black Coffee has the right to raise his concerns.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Black Coffee recently sat down with DJ Christos recently ahead of the Dance Music Summit and aired his views.
Speaking on support for Mzansi artists, Black Coffee expressed his frustrations regarding the lack of promoters.

“We have no promoters, we only have people who own venues and clubs. Their mandate is to make money in their clubs so they will not really invest in a really nice sound system. They would rather invest in couches and how the place looks, because they are running clubs, they are not passionate about the scene.”
Black Coffee has been around the world and then some, so he knows how others operate. The fact that Mzansi promoters hardly do any promoting is a big contributing factor to the failure of artists in Mzansi, according to him.
He also touched on the fact that house music is dying out slowly because DJs are forced to play what they are told instead of what they love – money talks.
In an attempt to save the beloved genre, Black Coffee revealed that he is working on creating a platform solely for house music.
In other news, the fact that Enhle Mbali and DJ Black Coffee were indeed getting a divorce did not come as a major shock, however, everything else that has slipped out after definitely has.
Ever since Enhle’s heart-breaking post went public, the public has been gunning for Black Coffee.
