Johannesburg – Popular house DJ Black Coffee did not appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court as anticipated on Monday. 

His name was not on the court roll, which listed all the people scheduled to appear. 

Court officials said the docket had not been brought to the court from the Florida police station because the DJ, whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo, was only scheduled to appear on Wednesday. 

Officials had earlier said that he was expected to appear on Monday. 

It was not immediately clear what had led to the mix-up. 

The We Dance Again hit maker was arrested on Christmas Eve after he was caught travelling at 200km/h in a 120km/h zone on the N1 highway, near the Maraisberg Bridge, in his Maserati. 

He released a statement on his Facebook page apologising for the incident, saying he had been rushing to a family emergency.

He is out on bail of R800.
