DJ Black Coffee has shared an update on his recovery following a scary incident in January.

The 'LaLaLa' hitmaker was injured in a "severe travel accident" while travelling in a plane en route to Mar del Plata, Argentina.

"The incident resulted in unforeseen complications and left him with some injuries. We can confirm that he is receiving the best possible medical attention," his team said at the time.

According to the Daily Mail, the 47-year-old, whose real name is Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo, suffered blows to his body when the private plane experienced severe turbulence.

The plane reportedly had to make an emergency landing.

Black Coffee took to his Instagram page to let his followers know that he is on the mend.

"Thank you for respecting my privacy during an intimate and enlightening moment in my life. I’ve taken this time to recover and take some much-needed time off at home, healing with my family by my side," he wrote.

The Grammy Award winner added that he is looking forward to getting behind the decks again.

"It’s been rejuvenating on a handful of levels, I can’t wait to be back on the dance floor with you all very, very soon."

Black Coffee will announce new dates very soon. 

"I’m thankful to the merciful God for giving me yet another chance. Announcement for the near future shows coming soon. Big Love, Black Coffee," he said.
