Black Coffee

Earlier in the year Black Coffee announced on Metro FM that R&B singer Usher had been reluctant to work with him as he’d mentioned Coffee wasn’t “African enough.” That seems to be water under the bridge now as the DJ put up a teaser of their song together. Coffee has collaborated with music giants including Alicia Keys and Drake.
