DJ, 14 fans off to Ibiza
THRILL: BLACK COFFEE PERFORMS AGAIN AT THE FAMOUS HÏ IBIZA CLUB
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
