South African DJ Black Coffee has spoken up after the backlash of performing in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The world-renowned musician shared a video from his performance in the country telling followers that he “loved” Tel Aviv and that it was a sold out gig but fans went on to lambast the DJ for putting a meal over the oppressive law in Israel and killings of Palestinians.
However, DJ Black Coffee stood firm in his “unpopular” decision and told naysayers where to get off.
Like everyone else I have rights and free will 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.

There’s a call to boycott Israel by the BDS South Africa (a registered South African NPO and PBO). They have imposed an academic and cultural boycott and called for all artists, academics, philosophers and cultural practitioners to refuse to participate in any activities, conferences, concerts, exhibitions or any other related field in the country which is being boycotted.
