In what has been termed a historic feat, Black Coffee has become the first Disc Jockey on the African continent to win a Grammy Award.

The 46-year-old DJ knocked off contenders Illenium, Major Lazer, Marshmello, Sylvan Esso and Ten City, to win the Best Dance/Electronic Album award for his seventh studio album, ‘Subconsciously.’

An excited Black Coffee was accompanied by his son Esona to receive the prestigious plaque.

Expressing his gratitude, Black Coffee said, “I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world, to heal souls and help people go through whatever they are going through in life.

“Thank you to my fans around the world for believing in me. I want to thank my family and my children,” he added in his Grammy speech, while thanking his fans.

The 64th edition of the Grammy Award held on Sunday night in Las Vegas.
