The South African house star sat down with his countryman Trevor Noah.
Speaking with Noah, who also hails from South Africa, Nkosinathi Maphumulo attributed his success to "knowing hunger and knowing that you've experienced it and you don't wanna go back." He also said that he's part of an effort to "change the narrative about [Africa]," to reverse the prevailing view of the continent as an "inferior place," instead inspiring Africans to stay and "create a better future."
Maphumulo also spoke about his platform for African producers and DJs, Africa Is Not A Jungle. Beyond DJing and producing his own music, Black Coffee has collaborated with Drake, David Guetta and more recently, Usher.
