Fresh from collecting his first-ever Grammy award over the weekend, Black Coffee joins Tbose for an exclusive interview on My Top 10 at 10.
Speaking to Tbose, Black Coffee says he was intentional when creating his award-winning album.
“I was very intentional when I was creating this thing. It’s not just for my people. When I create an album I don’t expect you to love all the songs. If you love number one only, perfect.”
Despite enjoying great success in his career, he believes that we are many generations behind compared to other parts of the world.
“We are generations behind and there are very few people who have the right mindset and it comes with intention. Like anything you want to work on without intention, you can’t get by. There’s a lot of work and every time I get to that thing that a lot of people call the hill I know that only my great-grandkids will get to the pinnacle.”
He also spoke about the imposter syndrome in us black people.
“There’s a little voice inside all of us and not everyone is ready for it. Most people ignore it and also our own insecurities.
“It doesn’t matter what you think about yourself, we are all the same. And slowly people started working, and that’s where that pull-down syndrome comes from. Why does my neighbor have a nicer gate than me? Why are my kids graduating? And it creates an energy in our people,” said the DJ in part.
