Amid the sad and anxiety-inducing news of the rising cases of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in South Africa and globally, DJ Black Coffee gave South Africans something to smile about when pictures of his luxurious birthday celebration did the rounds this past weekend. The talented DJ turned 44 on 11 March. Judging from the pictures, the dress code was a combination of red carpet best for the gents, and rich-aunt casual for the ladies.

The guest list featured politicians like Julius Malema and Fikile Mbalula, as well as celebrities such as DJ Fresh, Scoop Makhathini, Oskido, Tira, Sox, Riky Rick, Cassper Nyovest, Reason, Unathi Nkayi and Boity to name a few. Influencers like Olwethu Leshabane, Sarah Langa Mackay, Kefilwe Kefiboo Mabote also cracked the list. Organised by Vika Shipalana’s VBS Luxury Group, Black Coffee’s birthday celebration — which he apparently plans to throw every year — was nothing short of lavish. Peep the posh venue, and set up in the image gallery below if you haven’t! Seeing some of Mzansi’s finest in one yard gave new meaning to the popular catch phrase 'SBWL', and was inspirational to say the least.
