South Africans paid tribute to the great Nelson Mandela,  as 11 February is the day he was released out of prison in 1990.

For DJ Black Coffee, the day stands out for him, beyond the ordinary South African. It is the day he got injured, an injury that caused his left arm to be paralyzed and almost dashed his music career dreams.

Black Coffee has excelled at his craft over the years, and today he stands out as one of the very best.

On his Instagram, he recalled the accident that changed his life, Black Coffee was just 13 years old.

“Round about this time 26 years ago I was hospitalized after an accident that left me with a Brachial Plexus injury…..it was the day the Great Nelson Mandela was released from jail….It was a big day for the Country and the World at large..It was the People’s long life Dream coming true….While I was out Celebrating this moment my world was turned upside down…all my dreams of being involved in Music were shattered on this day…”

But he didn’t let that accident shatter his dreams.

“but Faith kept me going it kept me alive…..I use to hate this day….every year it would depress me but I’ve come a long way since then I’ve learnt so much about myself and I now celebrate this day as it changed my life….because of this day I’ve learnt to push all the limits…I’ve worked twice as hard to realize my dreams in Music…..”

What an inspiring story!
