Twitter bashes Black Coffee for Israel performance


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.
