He became actively involved in shows around his vicinity while horning his skills. He also started learning how to be a producer and focused a lot on it even in the late 80s and early 90s. He mastered electronic music all the while till a brief tragedy struck.
Side story about Black Coffee's left arm accident
In 1990, he joined a rally that was celebrating and fostering support for the late Nelson Mandela who was just released from prison. A taxi driver out of nowhere rammed into the crowd of supporters and there was a serious stampede.
Black Coffee dislocated his left arm at that event and this was a turning point for the artiste. Till date, he still has not been able to use that arm, that's why in most pictures you would see of him, his left arm is hidden or inside hi pocket.
