Cape Town - Multiple award winning local DJ Black Coffee got vocal about the state of the rainbow nation in an Instagram post that has gone viral.

The talented producer weighed in on what it means to be African and South African as well as what his dreams for South Africa are.

The post was accompanied by a photo of the star wearing a black shirt during what seemed to be a photo shoot. 

Here’s the full post with the picture: 

Growing up in my Country I had to learn the truth on my own about a lot of things......things that are meant to define who I truly am as a South African or an African.....I had many questions about so many different things.....like if the insides of a slaughtered animal(tripe) and it's legs and head (amanqina neskobho) are meant to be thrown away why is it called my traditional food.....why was I always told to dress smart....but never taught to be smart or business minded.... I understand the apartheid system was very instrumental in destroying self love and pride of Black People.... But now that's gone.....what are we doing to change the state of our Nation now as People ....when do we start building a society we are proud of,encourage our children to follow their dreams not just getting a degree on marketing or business management when in reality they'll never manage any business with these degrees...it's paper to hang on the wall to make the elders happy.......because there's no jobs....a lot of people with degrees are already sitting at home with no jobs....when do we change our school system to reflect who we truly are today....It's time we create a Country where children are taught in schools in depth about Steve Bantu Biko,Kwame Kruma and all the other great People of this Continent (All Races) so they can have love,pride and respect for where they come from and who they are...School that nuture their talents and interest and prepare them to directly impact the economy of the Country not join a long list of the Qualified and unemployed.....if Fees do Fall..are all these Students guaranteed Jobs?after all the agony,conflicts with the police,the arrests,the injuries and the damages on all these properties...Time for change is now....and no we don't need to March and sing....we need to start the conversation and implement it ourselves. In my lifetime my ultimate dream is to help create and nuture a Country of Leaders and forward Thinkers.
