Black Coffee birthday

Black Coffee's Madison Square Garden show couldn't have come at a better time. The 'Pieces of Me' hitmaker, who has worked with musicians such as Drake, Usher, and David Guetta - will be retiring in a few years. 

"In March this year I will be turning 47 years old, meaning I am three years away from 50, and at 50 I will retire," he revealed on 'Podcast & Chill with Mac G' last month. 

Black Coffee celebrated his 47th birthday on March 11.  He remains one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. 

His booking fee is reportedly between $150,000 (R2.7-million) and $300,000 (R5.5-million). 

Tickets for his Madison Square Garden will cost you anything from $54.84 (R1,000) to $103 (R1,900). The venue can accommodate up to 20, 000 people.

Black Coffee is the first DJ/producer from South Africa to headline the venue. 

Despite the achievement, he's not the first South African to perform at the venue. Former 'Daily Show' host Trevor Noah made history at Madison Square Garden in 2019. 

His standup show, 'Loud and Clear', sold out - making him the first African comedian to achieve the feat. 

Other stars who have sold out the venue include Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Harry Styles, and Nigeria's Burna Boy.
