  • DJ Black Coffee penned a sweet message to his son Esona Maphumulo, on his 21st birthday.
  • "I never had a father figure my entire life but i can't thank you enough for allowing me to figure out this fatherhood thing with you," he wrote on Instagram.

Along with a video collage filled with sweet father-son moments, Black Coffee penned a sweet message to his son, Esona Maphumulo, on his 21st birthday.

The touching video was edited to Tom Misch's When You Want To Love.

"My son turns 21 today, Wow where did time go!!! Thank you for being such an amazing human being, the best Grootman to your siblings, the captain of the team and for being grounded and respectful not just to me and your mother but to everyone, [sic]" the award-winning DJ wrote.

Esona appears to have taken after his dad when it comes to his musical talents, and is often photographed behind the turntables or with an instrument in his hand. 

"I can't imagine the kind of pressure you go through being my son and you know I never had a father figure my entire life but i can't thank you enough for allowing me to figure out this fatherhood thing with you," he continued to write.

Black Coffee has previously spoken about how having his son at 23 motivated him to work hard and chase his dreams, despite being a student with no job at the time. 

"Just incase I don't tell you enough I love you and I'm so proud of you and the man you are becoming. Happy Birthday boy boy or is it man man (had to throw in a Dad joke), [sic]" he ended the moving message.
