DJ Black Coffee and AKA’s beef have made the headlines a lot and most people don’t even know when and how it all started.
It’s no longer a secret that the two stars aren’t in good terms. From heated Twitter wars to getting physical when the DJ planted a hot slap on one of AKA’s team members in September last year, Nkosinathi ‘Black Coffee’ Maphumulo has seen it all. And now he has decided to finally open up about where his beef with AKA started.
Black Coffee emphasized that fans need to know that he is also human and can lose it sometimes. He said people sometimes took for granted the fact that he is quiet and that, as a celebrity, he might not respond the way a normal human being would.
“It’s very important for people to understand that in every person there’s the good and there’s also going to be the bad.”
In a recent interview with Phat Joe on East Coast Radio, the DJ just had to set the record straight. He revealed that, contrary to popular belief, the feud did not start after he commented on Meek Mill and Drake’s beef, saying SA rappers should learn from them and diss each other using music instead of Twitter.
Notably, it was at this time that AKA responded and told Black Coffee to get lost and focus on House music.
However, while he couldn’t remember the exact date, Black Coffee was certain AKA started the feud;
“People don’t understand, AKA started, I wouldn’t remember which awards…which year it was. It was the Channel O Awards. I won an award and he tweeted ‘Give Black Coffee a hand’. You must know that, at the time, I didn’t even know the guy. So, that’s where it started for me.
“It upset me so much that the following day I looked for him, I called him … I spoke to him and I said, dude, is there a problem? Like, I don’t know you.
“And he was like, yeah, it was taken out of context, I didn’t mean it like that. And I said alright, that’s cool.
“I think two weeks later, he mentioned he was so dope that even Black Coffee clapped for him.”
So far, there’s no end in sight to the Black Coffee and AKA’s beef.
