We honestly thought the news that Black Coffee is collaborating with Diplo and Moonchild Sanelly was highkey going to be the biggest news we’d share about the DJ this week. But then he goes and drops the video for his track Wish You Here and now we’re freaking out and you’re probably freaking out too. Kris Jenner works hard but Black Coffee works harder amiright?!
To add to our excitement, the visual feast features South African songstress Msaki. The video, which was shot by Cape Town photographer Adriaan Louw, features a montage of flashbacks and scenes of love torn apart, set against various South African backdrops. From city streets to rural landscapes, the video covers a lot of ground.

The DJ clearly has his mind set on bringing African music to the world. “One thing that is always clear is music, when it’s African it is African,” he told OkayAfrica in 2018. “We still have the power and it’s something they can’t just duplicate, that is ours.” Like, we know he needs to rest at some stage, but we hope it’s not any time soon cause this is the content we signed up for.
