Black Coffee ignores Covid protocols at Cape Town gig

Dylan Bettencourt

Popular DJ, Black Coffee is once again at the centre of controversy as videos surface of him playing a gig at a full Cape Town venue with individuals on the dancefloor failing to social distance and not wearing masks. 

Social media has labelled the event as a super-spreader and inconsiderate to all South Africa as the threat of a third wave of infections looms for the nation. 

The above tweet shows the incident which took place over the weekend with attendees clearly not following any Covid-19 protocols with guests not wearing masks or keeping a safe distance between each other. 

Ross Bowers, marketing and communications manager at The Silo Hotel where the event took place spoke to IOL and said: “The whole of The Silo Hotel, including all accommodation, was booked out privately on Saturday in accordance with Covid-19 regulations and restrictions on capacity. All protocols were adhered to on arrival and check in. Because it was private, the hotel was closed to the public.”
