DJ Black coffee has decided to use his influence for good, and lend a helping hand to help amid the spread of COVID-19.
In additions to blessing his fans with free streamed concerts, the DJ managed to raise R76000 this past weekend towards a solidarity fund set up by President Cyril Rhamaphosa.
Black Coffee decided to use his fame to request Donations for the fund, by doing what he knows best on the decks.
With a mix called Home Brewed 001, the DJ not only got people moving their feet but also had them send money towards the cause.
He managed to raise more than R76,000 for the fund and took it to social media to say thank you to all his fans.
“(I’m) blown away by all of the love and generosity following yesterday’s stream. For home Brewed 001, we were able to raise over R76000 ZAR towards the solidarity fund. Thank you!”
The DJ has another concert planned this coming Easter weekend to raise more money for the fund.
“I’ll be streaming again next Saturday to continue raising money for the cause. We’re still accepting donations” he said on Instagram.
Since the president declared COVID-19 a national disaster on March 15, he announced measures that would help suppress the spread of coronavirus and its economic impact, one of those measures was the solidarity fund.
“We have set up a solidarity fund, which South Africans businesses, organisations and individuals and members of the international community, can contribute to. The fund will focus efforts to combat the spread of the virus, help us track the spread, care for those who are ill and support those whose lives are disrupted, Ramaphosa said.
