As South Africa commemorates Women’s Month, hip-hop star DJ Black Coffee opposes rape and violence against women.
In his message, the award winning DJ spoke strongly about changing the errors of the past. His message goes out to men to discourage them from perpetrating violence against women.
The Women’s Month celebrates the strength of women with the aim to create an awareness about violence against women.
Thus, to support this cause, DJ Black Coffee opposes rape and other violence as he took to Twitter to bare his mind.
“Fellow South African men…let us not be quiet about rape. We are the ‘lol’ generation….people don’t speak out even when they see something wrong instead they’ll be quick to ‘lol’ it’s really sad,” he said on Twitter.
According to the popular DJ, men should stop holding unto the role Apartheid played in their mindset because it’s destroying them.
“We one day need to realize that Apartheid played a major role a breaking most South African Men… and no this is not about the President. Most of our Fathers and Uncles didn’t have time to be fathers and care hug, and kiss their own kids. They didn’t know how.”
Apparently, the Apartheid created in men a constant anger which they subsequently take out on their poor wives.
“Most of them were always angry and they will take it all out on their wives…who then accepted this behaviour as it was a norm. Most girls that are raped tell their Mothers but Mothers were thought to be silent…’kuyabekezelwa,'” he said.

He proffered a solution;
“We as men need to create groups talk, teach and learn coz this new South Africa is really a new thing to all of us. It is really up to us. Let’s Start talking at home and everywhere else….Let’s talk to each other not about each other.”
With this sense of direction, DJ Black hopes to help build a strong generation of future men who will not prey on women.
