Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo, has spoken out on claims he assaulted his ex-wife Enhle Mbali…

The famous South African DJ was responding to allegations of domestic abuse as well as a protection order application from his former spouse,

The actress and fashion designer appeared at the the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday, which heard an application for a protection order, preventing the international DJ from entering his former marital home.

Enhle has first accused her ex-spouse of domestic violence alleging that he assaulted her at their family home in March after a disagreement. According to the star, Black Coffee was unhappy she was throwing herself a birthday party at the house.

Speaking outside the court, Enhle spoke to the media claiming she would “fight until justice is done”

“No matter how small it is, it always escalates. We’ve seen our Karabo’s; we’ve seen our Reeva Steenkamps and I want that to stop today. I will fight with a lot of women fighters that I have rallied around me and I won’t stop until justice is done,” she says.

Enhle was joined by a large crowd of men and woman who carried placards and chanted against gender-based violence.

 

Black Coffee – who is opposing the protection order – broke his silence on Tuesday morning on Twitter

He tweeted; “In the name of respect and dignity for my family and my children I’ve been quiet but now I feel a need to speak.

“As a law-abiding citizen, I will absolutely observe the demands of the interim order but will categorically oppose the permanent installation of its prescripts and this is why we are currently in court.”

He also denied the allegations he assaulted Enhle, adding that his divorce from her has been “painful”

“Divorce is never easy but for us it has been especially painful and I’ve spent the last 3 years in and out of intense therapy to deal with it privately. Everyday I am attacked by relentless lies and falsehoods. I DID NOT ASSAULT HER

“I DID NOT assault Mbali, the mother of my children. I didn’t do it now and I have never done It before.

Black Coffee went on to state that Enhle was ‘misleading the public using GBV’

It is truly regrettable that she has chosen to mislead the public using the name of GBV and seeking a protection order against me to sperate me from my children and our home.

He also added that he had vowed never to allow GBV in his home after experiencing it as a child

He added; “I personally grew up witnessing GBV in my own household and from a young age I vowed never to allow that to happen again under any circumstances.
