Black Coffee is as sick and tired of gender-based violence as the rest of the country. The past week has seen an increase in awareness of the plight of many women who suffer at the hands of men.
Many activists and social media users are calling for more action to be taken to make the country safer for women and girls.
The lockdown has made the situation worse as many women and girls are trapped indoors with their tormentors.
Briefly.co.za learned that Black Coffee has taken action, he is organising a march and is calling for men and boys to join in. He is encouraging them to join in but to maintain social distancing and looting will not be tolerated.
The date of the march is Monday, June 15, at 9 AM at 150 Commissioner Street, Soweto according to ZAlebs.

Social media users were quick to comment on what they thought about the initiative:
@NMfithi: "I wanna be there..! Can I donate 100 masks..? But will need someone to donate fabric, me I’ll manufacture them."
@thandomahlangu_: "I fully support this movement, let's move bakwethu, asirageni. Everyone should get this important book right. It's very important for us men to understand the pain we are putting women through."
@omtimka: "When we are done with the match, we should rethink the praise given to boys at a young age for being “players”; we should call out all known abusers; we should reprimand young boys calling elderly women in movies “lamntana” and stop mainly portraying women as objects of pleasure"
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Black Coffee and Prince Kaybee have continued to trend on Twitter following their little spat on Thursday.
The DJs took shots at each other after Kaybee shaded Mzansi celebs for trying to sound intelligent on social media.
Kaybee shaded Coffee's friend, DJ Euphonik, and Mzansi celebs after a tweeter user, Koshiek Karan, dragged him for urging people to purchase property amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The internationally-acclaimed DJ took to Twitter later on Thursday to try and iron things out with Kaybee.
"In your statement you were excluding yourself as a celebrity hence my question... I wasn't fighting, I wish you spent time understanding it. But manje sila (now we're here)... Wishing you all the best."
