Instead, he received a backlash for performing in Israel even though there is a cultural boycott over the occupation of Palestine.
The DJ, born Nkosinathi Maphumulo, claimed in a tweet he was unaware of the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
The DJ also said he was in the region because he would do anything to feed his family. In another tweet he said: “Just like everyone else I have rights and free will and no, Black Coffee is not a political party I work as an entertainer to feed my family. To sum it up I will take a bullet for my family.”
BDS South Africa has come out and criticised Black Coffee for feigning ignorance because the organisation said it approached him in 2014 before his performance in Tel Aviv.
