Award-winning producer DJ Black Coffee (real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo) said that he was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday 7 January 2017, a day before his wedding, to actor Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa. The robbery reportedly happened at a Total Garage on William Nicol Drive in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
The DJ shared pictures of the smashed drivers-side window of his sports car, where he says attackers pointed a gun at him while instructing him to open his window. They then allegedly broke the window with a hammer and took his watch.
