DJ, 14 fans off to Ibiza


The Citizen (Gauteng) - - CITY -

He’s an ex­am­ple that you can be global, your tal­ent can take you any­where – fan.

DJ Black Cof­fee has just bagged the Best Deep House DJ award at the 2018 In­ter­na­tional DJ Awards held in Ibiza, Spain this week. South Africa’s hottest DJ also teamed up with Hunter’s to make some of his fans dreams come true via a com­pe­ti­tion.

The 500 win­ners and their part­ners were flown across the coun­try to a se­cret lo­ca­tion, which was re­vealed to be hangar 17 at Rand Air­port in Johannesburg, in Au­gust.

All ful­filled their dream of par­ty­ing with South Africa’s big­gest record pro­ducer and DJ, Black Cof­fee, along with Bhashkar, Sun El Mu­si­cian, Da Capo and DJ Cndo.

The main at­trac­tion of the night, be­sides Black Cof­fee’s two-hour set, was the live draw in which 14 lucky guests won an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence to the party is­land of Ibiza at the end of September to watch the DJ per­form at the fa­mous HÏ Ibiza club.

One win­ner, Philile Hlatshwayo from Johannesburg ex­claimed: “I still can’t be­lieve it, I am at a loss for words. I’m the hap­pi­est girl right now. When I en­tered I was at home bored and then I bought my 12-pack of Hunter’s and en­tered via SMS.

“I am a fan of Black Cof­fee, he in­spires me a lot! He is an ex­am­ple that you can be global, your tal­ent can take you any­where.”

Hlatshwayo has al­ready started plan­ning what she will be tak­ing on this once in a life­time trip. “When I go to Ibiza I want to get into a bikini and snorkel, I’ve never snorkelled be­fore,” she said.

Fur­rah Sim­beku, from Port El­iz­a­beth, was thrilled about get­ting to meet his favourite DJ and spend­ing time with him in Spain. “When I get to Ibiza I’ll be most ex­cited to see Black Cof­fee per­form­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence what’s hap­pen­ing in Ibiza, I’ve never been to that side of the world.

“While I was wait­ing in the queue at the Joburg event to en­ter the draw for the trip to Ibiza, strangely enough a guy be­hind me looked at me and said ‘you are go­ing to win’. When they an­nounced the win­ners, I was the first name they called out. So, I said to that guy ‘you were right, I’m a win­ner’.” – Cit­i­zen re­porter
