Black Coffee is working on bringing his arm back to life
South Africa's favourite DJ, the legendary Black Coffee is working on something spectacular. He is in attempts of bringing his arm back to life - after a very long 27 years of paralysis.
Nkosinathi Maphumulo aka Black Coffee, has revealed to CNN that he has begun therapy to rehabilitate his left arm that was left paralysed after he was involved in an accident that happened 27 years ago.
“People ask me ‘what are you working on?’ Silently, I know this is what I am working on now,” he said, patting his arm. “I am training it and trying to bring back life into it,” he told CNN. Growing up, other children would tease him a lot about his arm; which is what motivated him to be the best musician he could be.
“I don’t think I would be here if the accident didn’t happen because I started knowing that I didn’t really have as many options as other people. What is my talent? Let me research and work on it and be the best at it,” he said.
He's an amazing DJ with one functioning hand - we can even begin to imagine what he'd do with both hands fully functioning. Goodluck Black Coffee, we hope the recovery is speedy.
