Nkosinathi Maphumulo General Information


Mr. Nkosinathi Maphumulo is a Founder at Flightmode Digital. Nkosinathi Maphumulo a.k.a. Black Coffee is a music producer and DJ with over 2 decades' experience in the music industry. He is arguably Africa's biggest DJ and musical act. He has collaborated and worked with artists such as Drake, Alicia Keys, Usher, Pharrell, and Hugh Masekela to name but a few. Outside of music, his interests are wide and varied. He stays connected to the latest trends in fashion, art, tech, and property. Reserved, hard-working and intellectual - his passions, though not well known to the public, were the basis for him forming Flightmode Digital. The name Flightmode came from the time he spent in between DJ gigs on planes where all his devices were turned off. While most people would be sleeping and resting, he used that time to create music and strategize about his business interests.
