Black Coffee has broken silence four years after he made the headlines for cheating on his wife Enhle Mbali.
According to TimesLive, the couple made headlines in 2013 when Sunday World reported the star had allegedly cheated on Enhle with a model and aspiring businesswoman. Enhle claimed at the time that the woman was allegedly trying to extort money from them.
The famous music producer kept mum about the scandal for years, until recently when he sat down with the crew of Metro FM, where he said that people needed to understand that he grew up as a kid that had nothing but a desire to be a star, and when he suddenly found fame and attention it became overwhelming.
“A man, being a man, will always be a man. But now when you add the attention from the opposite sex, it can be blinding. It is something you will never be immune to as a person. You can try your best and every now and then it’s going to catch up with you. The love becomes overwhelming as a person. You become overwhelmed with everything, the success. Before you get used to everything, you slip up,” he said.
Black Coffee said he was grateful for the lessons he learned and he was now more “woke” than before.
He further shared his concerns with how the media magnified his errors. “With the tabloid stuff, it is a reminder of how human one is. Not just being written about but from also the mistakes one makes as a person. It is something that people should understand when you are dealing with someone who is as real as I am,” he said.
Adding, “My realness doesn’t stop anytime when the cameras are off or the microphones are off. I am real all the time. Being real means I make mistakes. Being real means I get angry. Being real means I get emotional. But everything that has happened has been a wake up call and a lesson.”
