JOHANNESBURG - South African DJ Black Coffee has apologised to his fans for his behaviour at the DSTV iRock Music Festival where he slapped rapper AKA's road manager.

The BET Award winner, whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo, was caught on camera during a heated argument with Tshiamo Letshwene and another man, allegedly over time schedules in Polokwane on Saturday night.

It's understood AKA, born Kiernan Forbes, and his team set up on stage during what was supposed to be Black Coffee's time to perform.

But then last night, the Clap Your Hands hitmaker paused his set at KONG nightclub in Rosebank to say a few words to his fans.

It seems both artists have decided to be mature about the incident after the Composure singer withdrew from a showdown with the DJ on Sunday.



Black Coffee was up for the challenge, even telling AKA, via Twitter, that he'll be performing at KONG, the same place he later decided to air his apology.
