Black Coffee march against GBV cancelled or postponed?

Written by on 16th Jun 2020

World renowned house DJ, Black Coffee has expressed his sentiments regarding Gender based violence experienced by women at the hands of men in South Africa.

South Africans have been calling for justice around the senseless killings and violent acts on women and children in the country. Along with the plight, they call for men to unlearn misogynistic behaviours, stop the violence, and for the government to take action in acting against the injustices women and children face on a daily basis.

Black Coffee called for “men and boys” to participate in a march that he organised to happen in Soweto. The DJ took to social media to share the details of the march on his social media.

Keeping with the lockdown regulations, he had encouraged social distancing and the usage of masks.

But now the real question is what happened to the march? Well… it was allegedly cancelled. This after the star trended on Twitter for a full day.

The artist received a lot of backlash from social media as people criticised him for “organising” a march when he associates with a “perpetrator,” and is referred to by others as an “emotional abuser,” for how his relationship with actress, Enhle Mbali played out.

A few responded in support of marching with Black Coffee…

Tweeps asked about it and speculated that it was cancelled indefinitely, whilst others claimed it may be postponed.

Should it be postponed, will you join the march?
