DJ Black Coffee nominated for the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. The American annual award show honours the year's television, movie, and music stars.

JOHANNESBURG – Social media users have slammed DJ and record producer Nkosinathi Maphumulo, better known as DJ Black Coffee, for performing in Israel.

The DJ tweet about a sold-out event in the city of Tel Aviv.

People said he had indeed sold out by defying calls for a boycott of Israel because of its treatment of Palestineans and "occupation" of land.

 

 

Among the critics was Economic Freedom Fighters chief whip Floyd Shivhambu. 

"That Israel is killing innocent Palestinians & continuing with the occupation doesn’t matter? A DJ from SA, a country that benefited due to international solidarity must just go to Israel for a party & we Black people celebrate such? Where’s the political & moral consciousness?" asked Shivhambu in a tweet.

DJ Black Coffee responded to the critics saying that he is not a  political party but a DJ working for the good of his family.

"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&39;ll take a bullet for my family," the DJ said through Twitter .

 

Not everyone was critical of the DJ.
