Cape Town – South Africa buzzed when local DJ Black Coffee won the BET award for best international act with even president Jacob Zuma joining the chorus of congrats sent to the muso. 

The successful musician has since travelled all over the world on tour. Getting clubs all over Europe bumping to his Mzansi-made tracks. 

But the glamorous lifestyle of a touring artist is not all it’s cracked up to be when you have loving family at home. 

Black Coffee posted a heartfelt message on his Instagram, explaining how he feels when he’s far away from his wife and kids accompanied with a sweet photo of them taken in the city of Dessau-Roßlau, Germany. 

Here’s the full caption, followed by the complete post: 

“I miss Home.
Traveling the world on tour looks like the most coolest job ever...the Job it's self is such a Blessing doing what I love with all my Soul for a living....but the traveling hours,the fatigue,lack of sleep,lack of good diet and exhaustion got the best of me this week...This week has been the hardest for some point I even lost my passport and Thanks to my team and my friends @djdamike and @angelodj they got it to me on time...I felt emotionally and physically drained....enslaved by my own dreams at my own will....I didn't know where exactly I was and what time it was due to lack of sleep....I literally shut down...and had to sit and do nothing for a while to get it all together.....The Picture is Bigger and it is to change the Story of my Father and all the other Fathers like is to reverse the Cycle...change the South African Music industry Story....The Story is not is not for is for the World....This Journey is not easy but it is the Journey to Greatness so I will pick myself up and Go On.
#GOON #itsnoteasybutitspossible #Godsveryown #skyisnotthelimititsjusttheview #GOON “

The father and husband followed that post with a photo of him and his children in Los Angeles California with the caption: “No Place like Home”.
