- Black Coffee acknowledged yet another triumph in 2021 when he tweeted that a song of his was added to the score of a huge Hollywood blockbuster, The Matrix Resurrections

Black Coffee shared some wonderful news with fans last Thursday, December 23, on Twitter, showing that he has had one of the best years of his career. The acclaimed DJ disclosed that one of his songs was featured in The Matrix Resurrections.
A day after the movie hit cinemas, Black Coffee let his followers know that Inkodlo Kamashimane, a track dedicated to his father, made it onto the movie soundtrack. He noted that he was taken aback by the selection because of the tune’s origins.
Black Coffee shared that he had produced the seven-year-old banger as a tribute to his late father on the year he passed away. For this reason, the Grammy-nominated musician poured his heart out on social media, writing:
“7 years ago after losing my father I made a song dedicated to him. Humbled beyond belief to be wrapping up 2021 with this song, “Inkodlo Kamashimane,” being featured in the new @TheMatrixMovie RIP Mashimane #GodsVeryOwn.”
