South African DJ and producer Black Coffee has won his first-ever Grammy award.
The Drive hit-maker won in the category Best Dance/Electronic Album for his seventh studio album, Subconsciously, which was released in 2021 and features Pharrell Williams, David Guetta and Msaki, among other artists.
During his acceptance speech, Black Coffee – who took to the stage alongside his eldest son Esona – revealed how he wants his music to heal people.
“I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world and heal souls and help people go through whatever they’re going through in life,” he said during his acceptance speech.
He also thanked his team, everyone who worked on the album, and his fans.
“I want to thank my fans all over the world and people who follow what I do, thank you so much for believing in me. I want to thank my family and my children.”
In a post-win interview, Black Coffee gave a special shout-out to “the African kids who are watching who come from where I come from who think they don’t have a chance.”
“I wanted to just say to them it’s possible; the award is not just for me; it’s just to show them,” he said.
Black Coffee is the first African DJ to receive the accolade, adding to his BET Award.
