“Black Coffee, It’s Time to Raise a Glass to Zakes Bantwini!” Tweeps demand
For a decade, Grammy–award–winning DJs Zakes Bantwini and Black Coffee have been engaged in a feud. The two had once been close friends and even produced a few hits together. But then, out of the blue, the two stopped talking.
However, with Zakes‘ historic win of the Best Global Music Performance award for “Bayethe”, tweeps begged Black Coffee to congratulate him. In response to the request, the SAMA award–winning musician took to social media to celebrate his win.
He also dedicated the award to his late parents. In 2022, Black Coffee also bagged a Grammy award in the Best Dance/Electronic Album category for his project titled Subconsciously. In 2021, he revealed why he wouldn‘t be playing Zakes‘ smash hit Osama in his sets. He said that even though Osama was fire, it just wasn‘t his kind of vibe.
Following Zakes’ win, tweeps urged Black Coffee to congratulate Zakes. Furthermore, they expressed how they hope the two stars can reunite and make Mzansi dance once again.

However, some are of the mind that given that Zakes Bantwini did not congratulate Black Coffee as well the other DJ is not obliged to do the same.
