Black Coffee is not only one of the best DJs in the world, but he has done tremendous charity work.
Last year, the musician raised over R500,000 for COVID-19 relief funds.
This year, the DJ is giving the less privileged an opportunity to study at the HyperionDev institution and have their fees fully paid for a qualification in technology.
DJ Black Coffee has partnered with HyperionDev, and together they are giving away bursaries to the value of R3.5-million.
“This year, we’re making tech education accessible to all. We’re giving away full scholarships to deserving dreamers with big ideas and plans for technology. Over the next few weeks, let us know why you think you deserve a scholarship funded by Black Coffee and many other prominent investors around the world,” states the HyperionDev website.
We're very proud of this partnership.

To enter, entrants will need to submit a 60-second video and write a 200-word essay stating why they are the best candidate to receive the funding.
This is not the first time Black Coffee has given away bursaries.
In 2014, the DJ Black Coffee Foundation paid for one lucky student to study at the School of Audio Engineering for a Higher Certificate in Sound Production qualification.
