Nkosinathi Maphumulo, popularly known as Black Coffee,  has been nominated for a Grammy award. The South African DJ got a nod in the category Best Dance/Electronic Album for his album Subconsciously.

He rose from Umlazi, KwaZulu-Natal to become one of the world’s most successful DJs, entertaining millions in dance clubs all over the globe.

Black Coffee goes up against Illenium, Major Lazer, Marshmello, Sylvan Esso and Ten City for the trophy.

US rapper, Jay-Z, has risen to the top of the list of artists with the most Grammy nominations, hitting a lifetime total of 83 that put him just ahead of former Beatle Paul McCartney.

The three latest nominations for Jay-Z came for collaborations with other artists.

He made guest appearances on DMX song “Bath Salts” and Kanye West’s “Jail,” which also earned Jay-Z a nod for West’s album “Donda.”
