"Our Mothers and our Ancestors are gonna be proud this Project," that was the caption Black Coffee used when he posted a picture of himself a month ago standing with fashion designer Laduma of the MaXhosa label and contemporary artist, Nelson Makamo.
At the time, few knew what this powerful proclamation meant but it was only a matter of waiting a short while for Black Coffee to list the veil. This Wednesday the DJ took to his Instagram account to announce that he and his two fellow creatives had come together to launch an academy for the arts.

Our Mothers and our Ancestors are gonna be proud this Project ??????????

Name the F.A.M Academy, short for Fashion, Art and Music, the project seeks to educate and empower young individuals who are talented in the respective fields. Speaking on the music aspect, Black Coffee explained, "...if you get admitted as a student you also receive a Recording Contract and you'll be taught about Music, Branding and Social Media, Music Business and more."
Paired with the internationally acclaimed Laduma and the revered, Nelson Makamo, there opportunities will be clearly endless for the fortunate individuals who get to attend the academy.
