While South African DJ Black Coffee takes his talent around the world, entertaining the people, he most recently visited Tel Aviv, Israel for the 3rd time in last 5 years. The issue is, many of people on Twitter made it clear that they thought he should boycott the Jewish state.
One of whom is a South African activist and politician serving as a Economic Freedom Fighter name, Floyd Shivambu. Here is what he had to say about Black Coffee, “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?” while continuing to say, “That Israel is killing innocent Palestinians & continuing with the occupation doesn’t matter?”
Black Coffee ignored the tweets for a while, but then felt the need to respond after his Israel show this past Saturday, “Like everyone else I have rights and free will,” he wrote. “and no Black Coffee is not a political party…I work as an entertainer to feed my Family. To sum it up….I’ll take a bullet for my Family.”
Well BC definitely set the record straight!
