Popular South African international DJ, Black Coffee, will be opening a Fashion, Art and Music Academy along with two other South African creative talents, Laduma Ngxokolo and Nelson Makamo.
Making the announcement on Instagram, @realblackcoffee, he said: “Our goal is to build an Academy for talented youth on these 3 professions. We want to create Jobs for the Students straight out of the Academy.”
The curriculum is designed to equip students with knowledge across disciplines. To this end, when someone gets admitted as a student of the F.A.M Academy, the person will receive a recording contract while learning about music, branding, social media, and music business, Black Coffee revealed.
Students are expected to release their first single in their second year at F.A.M Academy. Thereafter, a full length album is expected to be dropped by the students in their third year during their final recital.
