South African international musician DJ Black Coffee’s name was removed from the list of SAMAs nominees before the official list was released.
A source close to DJ Black Coffee confirmed that the top DJ asked to be removed from the list of nominees, as he is currently dealing with personal issues at home.
He pleaded with organisers to be dropped from the list.
This comes after he was nominated for his work as an artist.
Lesley Mofokeng SAMA spokesperson did confirm that the musician has been removed from the list of nominees and they respected his wishes.
