Black Coffee is nominated with two other South African acts, AKA and Cassper Nyovest but he said he would rather see the award goes to the Nigerian star Wizkid, “I would like to see Wizkid take it. He’s worked hard! I really think he deserves it. He’s also done well internationally being featured on Drake’s album and working with Chris Brown.”
He also said he ‘d always imagined himself among the biggest stars of the world, “One of the things I dreamt about when I was young was to be friends with Michael Jackson. I always wanted to take SA to the world and be known internationally. I had mapped down my dream since the beginning and I’ve been working towards them.”
Black Coffee said being nominated for the BET Award is a reminder of the hard work he has put in building his career. He also praised the BET Awards for being a platform that doesn’t only promote African artists but is also involved with the entertainers.
