Latest: Black Coffee denies Mbali’s assault allegations

2 min read

South African DJ Black Coffee has repeatedly and vehemently denied allegations of assault levelled against him by his estranged wife Mbali.

This was after actress Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa went to court to apply for a protection order against her estranged husband, Nkosinathi “DJ Black Coffee” Maphumulo. Mlotshwa filed a protection order against her estranged partner in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court this week.

According to IOL Mlotshwa has accused DJ Black Coffee of allegedly assaulting her at her 33rd birthday dinner at their home.

“She confirmed that he had hit her hand and pushed her after threatening to shut her birthday celebration down by calling the police,” IOL reported.

DJ Black Coffee’s publicist, Neo Chabedi, referred The South African’s request for comment on the matter to his latest Twitter post. She said this was the only comment he would make at this stage.

Growing up with domestic abuse meant Black Coffee vowed to stand against GBV

Black Coffee posted a series of Tweets on Tuesday in which he denied the allegations saying: ” Divorce is never easy but for us it has been especially painful and I’ve spent the last 3 years in and out of intense therapy to deal with it privately. Everyday I am attacked by relentless lies and falsehoods. I DID NOT ASSAULT HER.”

He added: “It is truly regrettable that she has chosen to mislead the public using the name of GBV and seeking a protection order against me to sperate me from my children and our home.”

Black Coffee said he also “personally grew up witnessing GBV in my own household and from a young age I vowed never to allow that to happen again under any circumstances.”

He also tweeted:

The matter was adjourned to 28 April for both parties to be issued with a summons.
