Commenting on DJ Black Coffee’s win at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, Sheer Publishing, South Africa’s largest independent music producer, has extended its heartiest congratulations to Black Coffee and to the team at Universal.

The South African DJ and producer won in the category Best Dance/Electronic Album for “Subconsciously”.

“Black Coffee’s win at the Grammy’s is special because he is an artist whose musical roots are in a uniquely South African genre which he has worked tirelessly to promote across the globe. His win is a source of inspiration for all aspiring artists on the continent and reaffirms that original and authentic South African sounds coupled with a high work ethic will ultimately result in success,” says Thando Makhunga, newly appointed managing director of Sheer Publishing.

Makhunga says Black Coffee’s win is a testament to the richness of talent in South Africa, as evidenced by previous winners such as Miriam Makeba, Wouter Kellerman, and of course, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. “This is such a wonderful opportunity for the South African music industry to shine on the global stage. South Africa and the African continent as a whole, have such a rich and diverse array of talent that needs support and acknowledgment,” she concludes.
