Watch: The night DJ Black Coffee lost his cool & slapped AKA's manager
It's reported there was some issue with the time schedule on who was supposed to perform next.
JOHANNESBURG - International award-winning, DJ Black Coffee, slapped SA hip-hop artist AKA's manager, Tshiamo Letshwene, in what appeared to an altercation in Polokwane on Saturday night.
In a short video, Black Coffee is seen talking to two men, and while the conversation is still going, the house music producer suddenly unleashes a slap, hitting Letshwene in the face, causing his hat to fall.
Those around quickly restrained the DJ, in an attempt to stop the fight.
It's reported there was confusion with around time schedules and who was due to perform next at DSTV iRock Music Festival.
It's claimed AKA's band was two hours late for the show.
Soon after the incident, AKA went on social media to vent his frustration, but music fans didn't buy his side of the story.
If you want to know why I didn't perform tonight you will need to ask @dstvsa why it's ok for people to assault my road manager on stage.— AKA (@akaworldwide) September 24, 2016
Not a fan of @akaworldwide but if his story is legit, it takes a lot to put your crew first before your fans. Respect.

AKA came to the TL to report Black Coffee and the TL was like, "Banibethe kancinci". My mother gave me the same treatment in 1999. It hurts.— Akhona (@AkhonaMashaya) September 25, 2016

Thee hand of Black Coffee is so capable of so many things we didn't know about, ask AKA's road manager he will tell you.— MKHWELI (@Sthee_Gee) September 25, 2016
So in his rant AKA neglects to mention that he was 2 hours late. Black Coffee was right. Umlayile!— Olwee (@Olwee) September 25, 2016
