Talent Hunt: International Star DJ Black Coffee Is Looking To Bless A Young DJ


One lucky fan will get the chance to perform with award-winning international star DJ Black Coffee in Ibiza.

DJ Black is taking up a residency in Ibiza from June until September and will be taking along a young DJ to perform at an all-African event on the island which is one of the world’s party capitals.

The move is an effort to find and showcase Africa’s house music talent on an international level. For the most part, Black Coffee is excited to avail a young talent the opportunity of a lifetime – to ‘find their magic’.

He is partnering with deodorant and fragrance brand AXE. The internationally celebrated house music master revealed his plans in a press conference where he was announced as the brand’s ambassador.

Meanwhile, the lucky fan will be chosen from a talent search competition in connection with Axe. This will run over the next few months.

“Of all the endorsements I’ve had over the years, it’s the message ‘find your magic’ that makes this one different. I always try to inspire people, whether it’s with my work or even the kind of content I post on social media. I always try to stay on the positive things,” Black Coffee explains.

“To have a brand this big communicating the same thing helps me communicate that message even further. My magic is music and I was very fortunate to know that from an early age. I have worked really hard to enhance my talent and be better at it. My goal is to help other people find theirs.”

In the meantime, aspiring DJs are urged to submit a demo track on axecess.com and share “how they have found their magic”.

Subsequently, five finalists will be hand-picked by Black Coffee himself to compete at a send-off party in August. Eventually, the winner of the competition will get a golden opportunity to perform alongside other African winners and Black Coffee at an all-African event in Ibiza in September.
