Watch! Black Coffee: “The Most Creative Artist Is The Artist That Is Free” At The SA Investment Conference – The conference gives a platform for potential investors to directly engage with government and business representatives on new investment opportunities.
It also grants an opportunity to circulate advancement on our work around the ease of doing business in the country.
While some critics deplore the conference as simply being another talk shop, when we see artists such as Black Coffee participating, we believe it will aid restore our investment credibility, transmit a transparent message that South Africa is open for business and is beginning to yield tangible investments.
The second South Africa Investment Conference follows on the last year’s inaugural event that received R300 billion of investment commitments from domestic and international firms. These included amongst other international e-commerce giant Amazon establishing a cloud-computing hub in South Africa; global mining company Vedanta Resources investing in a local smelter; Rwanda-based technology company, Mara Corporation, to make high-tech smartphones and pharmaceutical company Aspen Pharmacare investing in the manufacture of sterile anaesthetics.
Now, Black Coffee says:
“I’m just a DJ, I don’t have all the answers.”?
“The most creative artist is the artist that is free (free, meaning an artist who owns the rights to their work)!”
He says as South Africa, we need to have a ‘family meeting’, to discuss “who are we? Not who we were told we are/were!”
He drives his narrative fro a perspective of … a country, to figure out what are we good at? And allocate what we have, so, to offer the world with excellency.
