Fans are in awe of the United Nations Foundation (UNF) acknowledging Black Coffee for his many contributions to the fight against Covid-19.
The UNF praised the world-renowned DJ after the star raised more than R400 000 in Covid-19 donations.
The DJ has supported government's Covid-19 Solidarity Fund through weekly concerts.
The Solidarity Fund is aimed at providing aid for small businesses affected by the pandemic, and another organisation giving basic necessities to those most in need.
He has raised more than R90 000 for the Covid-19 Solidarity Fund, R147 000 for Corona Cares SA and R164 000 for SAveABusiness.
The UNF wrote, "We are grateful to have you support the World Health Organisation (WHO) in the fight against Covid-19. We are all in this together.
Black Coffee has rounded up some of his famous pals, including DJ Tira, to join him for his weekly concerts.
The DJ must be pleased that people's attention is finally on something either than his separation from actress Enhle Mbali.
Four months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Black Coffee said he was tired of people poking their noses into his divorce.
He said, “I don't feel I owe anyone anything. I am not the first person to be in this situation. No-one is dead. No-one is abused. Nothing terrible happened. We just decided this is where we want to be. But the public feels they should have a say, to a point where it is sometimes disrespectful."
