The South African music producer took home the Best Dance/Electronic Music trophy for his album ‘Subconsciously.’

In a tweet, President Ramaphosa thanked the DJ for “flying the flag and inspiring a new generation of talent to take over the world”.


The South African music producer, whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo, beat out additional five contenders including Illenium, Major Lazer, and Ten City to scoop the category award.

A first Grammy win for Black Coffee after just his first nomination in a career that has continued to blossom since his first BET Awards win in 2016.

He won the Best International Act Category, setting himself on a trajectory to reach this pinnacle moment in his career.
