DJ Black Coffee (real name Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo) has opened up about having battled with low self-esteem.
The renowned South African DJ and record producer, told DJ Fresh on 94.7 last week that his low self esteem was self sabotage.
“I asked myself ‘Why me? Why am I here?’ It used to hit me and I would find myself not wanting to wake up, missing flights. It was self-sabotaging. (You feel like) it is such an unreal dream, it is going to end. Let me end it. I will feel better if I end it myself. Let me have something to blame, and it is me.”
Speaking at a press conference of his 2019 Music is King concert launch this past Wednesday, DJ Black Coffee revealed that the entertainment industry could be lonely and musicians needed to support and mentor each other.
“My dream is to create a family out of this. Where we can call each other… I would like for us to become like, for example, me and Oskido, where when I have real problems, I call him. I would like to see that where we don’t really know each other but can reach out to each other, to be a family.”
