Black Coffee fan records a song with the local legend
Written by worlddancefm on 12th March 2017
In a dream come true moment, a Black Coffee fan, Yoza Mnyanda, a sound production graduate from UCT, got to record a song with the producer.
Myanda posted a clip of herself on Twitter singing one of her songs titled ‘Save Me from Me’. In a bold move she tweeted Black Coffee and asked how many retweets of the clip it would take for him to record a song with her.
Black Coffee, being the cool and inspirational dude that he is agreed and it was on. They recently got together to do the song in his studio. Everyone on social media got to be a part of the story as they watched this interesting and spontaneous collaboration roll out in real time.
Black Coffee even played the track for his kids and it appears that it was an opportunistic bonding moment for everyone involved. That’s all the detail available on this new track since it doesn’t have an official title and the release date has not been confirmed yet. However, Twitter is staying on top of this one and we will report as soon as we know.
It gets better…
