Black Coffee tells the story behind his shirt worn for the Madison Square Garden concert on Saturday night, 7th of October. The clothing was designed by Mike Amiri, and he also shared a video clip revealing the making of the shirt. The DJ ensured that the three women who raised him were embroidered and beaded into the clothing.
“For me, this is such an important piece for myself because I am literally carrying my people to Madison Square Garden,” Black Coffee said. The piece is these three women, one Zulu woman and two Xhosa women. The one in the middle younger, that being my mother. You know being who I am in the family, I wanted to preserve the history of our family,” he added. Amiri says he is honoured to work with the DJ, knowing that its a special piece for him.
“I was really humbled that he will reach out to me to partner with him on creating a look for such a special performance. One of the best feelings I get in creating, is putting something together with this much meaning and that’s this important to someone. He’d showed me a painting that reflected them, and I wondered was there a way to incorporate that,” the designer said. Music legend, Oskido who flew to New York to attend the concert also gushed over the heart-warming shirt.
“realBlackCoffee pays homage to the three women who raised him, his mother and two grandmothers before he goes on stage at the world’s most famous arena, 20,000 capacity Madison Square Garden in New York City, US,” Oskido wrote.
