The organisers said in a press statement that one of the most loved categories, Deep House, has a new king, who has won the award for a second consecutive year after an incredible season in Ibiza.

The prestigious international awards ceremony celebrates DJs and producers, industry professionals excelling in the electronic music space at the end of the Ibiza summer season.

This is Black Coffee’s third award. Last year, he walked away with the coveted title and in 2015, he scooped the Best Breakthrough DJ award.

Black Coffee, whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo, was competing against British DJs Damian Lazarus and Maya Jane Cole, as well as American deck-spinner DJ Bedouin.

In a previous interview with DESTINY, Black Coffee said he was blessed to be carving out a career from his passion.

“It’s such a blessing. I can never take it for granted. It’s God’s blessing. It’s also because I sweat over this. I love what I’m doing. I’ve given my all to this. I can’t imagine doing anything else,” he said.
