Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, popularly known as DJ Black Coffee, is one of the most accomplished personalities in Mzansi whose name is known far and wide across the globe.
Considered among the richest celebrities in South Africa and among the richest entertainers in Africa, Black Coffee is an internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning deejay who also dabbles as a music producer and a businessman.
And while his success and stories of conquest always dominate our headlines, DJ Black Coffee is only human, and like us all, he too has his “shortcomings” and his is on his left hand, which for the longest time he tried to hide from the public’s eye.
Here is a look at what exactly happened to Black Coffee’s hand and arm and why he thinks he wouldn’t be a great deejay if he could work with both of his hands.
What is wrong with Black Coffee’s hand?
After decades of keeping the story about his left hand and arm private, in 2017, Black Coffee came clean about what happened to it during an interview with Anele Mdoda on Real Talk.
During the interview, the internationally acclaimed DJ narrated how on the eve of the late Nelson Mandela’s release in 1990, he and his grandmother joined the crowds in celebrating the big event.
At around 3 or 4 am, he heard a loud blast that sounded like a gunshot, he blacked out and when he later woke up, there was fire and people including himself were being rushed to the hospital. Apparently, a taxi had veered off the road and bumped into people who had lined the streets.
At the hospital, doctors examined Black Coffee’s hand and concluded that it was just a minor fracture and sent him home but the pain was too much and after one day, his grandmother sent him to a hospital in Durban where he consulted with a specialist.
After examination, the doctor revealed that the nerves on his shoulder were damaged and that there was no life and his arm and they even considered amputating it. Fortunately, the doctor told him that his hand was not completely damaged and although they ruled out amputation, he was told that it would take time for the hand to ever regain strength.
Black Coffee, who has learnt to live with his hand, revealed that he often feels some sensation on his hand but he didn’t have hopes of ever working with it saying that God had put him in that space for a reason and that he couldn’t imagine himself deejaying with two hands as he would probably suck.
Why did Black Coffee stop wearing arm braces?

Still talking to Anele Mdoda, Black Coffee further revealed how he had been bullied by kids while he was growing up because of his hand and for a long time, he stopped wearing an arm brace.
But after years of keeping his arm concealed, the deejay who is trying to be a good role model to his children in teaching them to be true to themselves is all about embracing himself.
“We all have little or big things that we don’t like about ourselves and we often put ourselves down before other people do. I’m personally working towards breaking those chains in my space, and I believe with this, I’m gonna unlock even more opportunities for myself. Don’t let anything pull you down.” He said.
We hope that the story of Black Coffee’s hand inspires you today. Firstly, not to let your physical shortcomings get in the way of your success. And secondly, we all have flaws and shortcomings- every single one of us. Get out and embrace your imperfections and if the world judges you then that’s their problem, not yours.

The identity of Jub Jub girlfriend remains a mystery. It has previously been reported that Jub Jub is married to a lady named Zenith Mia.
Given how private Jub Jub has kept his marriage and wife, it is pretty unclear when the two love birds got married.
However, it appears that the two might have married shortly after Jub Jub was released from prison in 2017, and the couple has been living in private bliss ever since.
Jub Jub and Zenith do not have any children together yet. However, Jub Jub has a son from his past relationship with musician Kelly Khumalo whom he is not allowed to see after Kelly accused Jub Jub of physically abusing her.
Mzansi’s favourite dramatic reality television show Uyajola 99 is back and viewers will be delighted to know that Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maarohanye will be back at Moja Love as the host of the show.
Sometime in June the television personality took to social media to post a promo video of the new season of the reality television show which was in the production phase at that time.
In the caption of the post, he announced that he will once again be hosting the reality television show.
“Back by popular demand beng’ngeke ngin’yeke nje. Obafooooli. Cho phez’kwenye. Ni nyile ke manje,” said Jub Jub.

Foul Play Suspected On Busi Lurayi’s Death After Latest Revelation And Injuries Found On Her Body
Busi Lurayi’s death seems to have so many secrets as investigations are still ongoing. The star was laid to rest last week after she passed away on July 10. According to reports, Busi was found dead in her daughter’s room after she was excused from set for not feeling well. It has also been alleged that she was found with visible injuries and blood was allegedly coming out of her mouth.
The publication alleges that a source, who is a close associate, claimed her body was found with bruises, with blood coming out of her mouth.
Her father Freddy Mokoena found her deceased in her daughter’s room. Apparently, when the police officer arrived, he found Busi’s body bruised on her legs and her mouth was slightly open with blood coming out.
The source said this to the publication: “If she died of natural causes, then why did she have bruises on her legs and why was blood coming out of her mouth when her father found her lying down in her bedroom? Something is amiss here. We can’t wait to see what the autopsy report says.
The source also told the paper that Busi did not have any enemies and hope the police would do a thorough job in finding what exactly caused her death.
“She did not have enemies; she was always a jolly person who was loved by the entire universe. If someone harmed her, that will be so shocking because she would never provoke or hurt anyone. The police should do a thorough job here, we need answers. They know what we are talking about.
