Black Coffee entertains while raising money for Covid-19 relief and newly-weds get arrested for contravening lockdown rules.
DJ Black Coffee has decided to go the extra mile in helping his country deal with the impact of Covid-19.
In addition to giving the world free streamed concerts, the DJ managed to raise R76,000 this past weekend towards a solidarity fund set up by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Black Coffee decided to use his star power to get donations for the fund, by doing what he knows best on the ones and twos.
With a mix called Home Brewed 001, the DJ not only got people dancing but also had them send money towards the cause.
Well done and thank you Mr Coffee.

We urge citizens to postpone public engagements and stay home during this lockdown, don’t get caught on the wrong side of the law.
There are 1655 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in SA and 11 deaths.
Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize, said: “We jointly shared the concern about the disastrous effect this pandemic may have on the African continent, given the levels of poverty and explosive spread in densely populated areas of human settlement.
“It was agreed we must strengthen our coordination efforts as a continent in order to limit the number of deaths and reduce the uncontrollable spread of this pandemic.”
