Sona, as he is professionally known, is 24 years old and was born on August 18th, 1999. His mother is identified as Zukiswa Tyolo, and according to the DJ, she was the one who named their son Esona Sinokuhle, and he gave him an unofficial name, Mcebo, meaning his motivation.

Sona, who has followed in his father’s footsteps, is now a budding DJ and music producer. Besides South Africa, the young star has performed sets in countries like France, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. Esona Maphumulo attained an incredible career milestone in June 2022 as he was credited as a co-producer of one of the songs in Drake’s seventh studio album, ‘Honestly Never Mind’.

The 24-year-old produced the beat for ‘Texts Go Green’ and the song was a commercial success, for which his father congratulated him. Later in November 2022, Sona was appointed the director of Soulistic Agency and the Black Coffee Foundation, both owned by his father.

Lilitha Maphumulo is the second son of DJ Black Coffee. Despite his father’s fame in the country, the youngster has chosen to lead a private lifestyle. Hence, not much information about him is available in the media, which makes it difficult to know his date of birth and occupation. His mother also is unknown, as DJ Black Coffee hasn’t deemed it fit to share the identity of his second baby mama with the public.

How Many Kids Does Mbali Have With Black Coffee?

Enhle Mbali shares two sons – Anesu and Asante Maphumulo with her estranged husband, DJ Black Coffee. The pair got married traditionally in 2011 and then had their civil wedding six years later. Sadly, their marriage ended in 2019 when they got divorced. Nevertheless, it produced two adorable children, and here are details of what they are up to.

3. Anesu Maphumulo

Born on February 13th, 2011, Mbali and Black Coffee’s eldest son, Anesu, is 13 years old. His birthplace is Manhattan in New York, United States, where his father also resides. And he is believed to be attending a private school in the country.

The young lad loves car racing and dreams of becoming a Formula 1 driver in the future. He took an interest in racecar driving at a very young age and has taken his dream very seriously since then. In February 2022, Anesu Maphumulo turned 11, and his parents celebrated him on social media. His mother wrote a lengthy message for him on IG. She described her son in the post as someone who loves hard and is empathetic to those around him.

She also added that her young son has taught her what it means to be willing to do anything for somebody and that she has learned unconditional love through him.

She disclosed that after giving birth to her first child, the doctors told her that she wasn’t going to conceive again. However, her second son came along in 2015, and she has been grateful for the miracle.

Asante is only 8 years old and is yet to decide on which career path to follow. Just like his brother, he was born in New York, United States.

Black Coffee Allegedly Had Other Children While Married to Enhle Mbali

Black Coffee’s marriage to Mbali reportedly ended due to allegations of cheating and abuse. The actress allegedly filed for divorce after learning that her husband fathered more than one child while married to her. And in the same year, the union collapsed, a then-26-year-old KwaZulu-Natal woman called Mimi Buthelezi claimed that she shares a three-year-old daughter with the ‘Drive’ crooner.

She made the claims during an interview on Ndivhu T’s YouTube channel in December 2019. And further alleged that she had been DJ Black Coffee’s friend since 2012 and had sexual relations with him for several years. More so, Mimi Buthelezi claimed that the famed record producer paid her more than R1 million to remain silent about the existence of their daughter, whom he hid from his wife as well.

Earlier in that same month, it was reported that Black Coffee fathered two children outside his marriage. The children were aged 12 months and 14 months at the time. Surprisingly, the international DJ never denied or confirmed the allegation of fathering two more children.

Black Coffee Dedicated His Grammy Award Win to His Children

There’s no denying that DJ Black Coffee’s children mean the world to him. He is a doting father who isn’t shy of letting the public know how much he loves his children. Hence, he was quick to let the world know that he has five more children apart from Esona, who accompanied him to the Grammy Awards show in April 2022.

His revelation obviously left people guessing who is DJ Black Coffee’s other two children as four are already known. The DJ, however, has been mum on revealing the identities of all his children and baby mamas as well. Hopefully, he will do so someday, as all his children share a special place in his heart.

After clinching the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, he dedicated the award win to his children, who had put up with him for being away from home whilst pursuing an international career which did pay him off with the much-coveted award.
