Spring Fiesta and Soulistic Music have issued a joint announcement informing the public and all festival patrons that headliner, South African DJ and producer Black Coffee will no longer be able to perform at Spring Fiesta on Saturday the 1st of October 2016.
During an open discussion, which took place this last week between Spring Fiesta festival director, Ricardo da Costa and head of Soulistic Music, Amaru Da Costa, it was disclosed that an unforeseen prestigious and vitally pivotal career opportunity had been presented to Black Coffee. One which unfortunately made it impossible for Black Coffee to honour his performance commitment to Spring Fiesta on Saturday the 1st of October.
Festival director, Ricardo da Costa explained that Black Coffee and his team approached us with this obvious dilemma and naturally our initial reaction tended towards the selfish. But as his longtime supporters, we also recognise that Black Coffee is no longer only SAs to hold onto and benefit from.
He further expressed that Spring Fiesta fully supports and has encouraged Black Coffee to accept and embrace this unique opportunity, which we believe will be seminal in further advancing and cementing his legacy on the global stage. To this end, we have made the decision to release Black Coffee from his scheduled performance at Spring Fiesta 2016.
In response, Nkosinathi Maphumulo (Black Coffee) commented that he would like to extend his sincere thanks to the Spring Fiesta team for their unflinching and continued support, understanding and heartfelt blessing.
Although no longer a part of the main event, Black Coffee will still be performing at the Road To Spring Fiesta campaign, a series of events taking place across Gauteng in the run up to Spring Fiesta 2016. He is confirmed to perform at Two Tone Lounge in Daveyton on Saturday the 10th of September as part ofthe pre-festival party roll out.
We are hoping to see Black Coffee return to Spring Fiesta in 2017 and makes us dance again.
