South African DJ Black Coffee Sustains Injuries During a Flight to Argentina


January 12, 2024

Grammy award-winning South African DJ Black Coffee is receiving treatment for injuries sustained during a flight, reportedly because of air turbulence.

Black Coffee’s plane, which was traveling on Sunday from the Brazilian city of Florianopolis, was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo.

The 47-year-old artist, whose real name is Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, is one of Africa’s most successful entertainers. The record producer was en route to a club performance in the Argentinian resort city of Mar Del Plata when the incident happened.

Local media are reporting that the DJ was admitted to hospital. However Black Coffee’s management team called the incident “severe” adding that it had “left him with some injuries”, but “despite the challenges presented, Black Coffee is optimistic and recovering well”.
