Swizz Beatz and Black Coffee in Joburg

Swizz Beatz and Black Coffee

American producer Swizz Beatz has been in Johannesburg, South Africa for a couple of days now  and it looks like he is loving it!

Kasseem Dean, better known by his stage name Swizz Beatz, is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer from New York City, New York.

From getting a haircut in the City of Gold to rubbing shoulders with local stars such as Cassper Nyovest and Major League DJz, the producer is definitely enjoying his time here.

In a recent video posted by the artist, he and Black Coffee are shown driving around while pumping Burna Boy’s new track.

It looks like Swizz Beatz – who is married to legendary R&B singer Alicia Keys – is in the country to work on some new music with Black Coffee and to meet other South African artists.

On Friday Cassper Nyovest posted a pic on Instagram of what appeared to be a meet up with the 39-year-old producer.

He captioned it, “To a new friendship and building a bridge for SA hip-hop.Classic night!!! CHEERS BRO.”
