Following ‘Black Coffee’ Concert, ANC Calls for Cultural Boycott of Israel

The African National Congress (ANC), has called for a cultural boycott of Israel after expressing disappointment in the recent Tel Aviv concert of DJ Nkosinathi Maphumulo, popularly known as Black Coffee.

DJ Black Coffee performed at a show in Tel Aviv at the Easter Weekend. The artist claimed he was unaware of the conflict between Israel and Palestine.

In a tweet, the DJ said he was in the region because he would do anything to feed his family.

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) South Africa criticized Black Coffee for feigning ignorance as the group said it had approached him in 2014 prior to his Tel Aviv show.

The call for a cultural boycott also came simultaneously as the South African government strongly condemned the Israeli armed forces for the killing of 31 Palestinians, and the injuring of hundreds of others, over the last week as Gazans protested the continued Israel siege of the coastal enclave.
