South African Twitter Had Mixed Reactions to Black Coffee’s Feature on Drake’s 'More Life'
"How is Black Coffee featured on his own song ?," reads one tweet.
Drake featured Black Coffee on "Get It Together," one of the songs from his latest playlist More Life.
The song is a remix of Black Coffee’s 2011 track called “Superman,” which originally featured the singer Bucie. On the reworked version of the song, Bucie’s vocals were removed and replaced by those British singer Jorja Smith.
A lot of South Africans were happy with Black Coffee being featured by one of the biggest artists on the globe. But some weren’t impressed with Bucie’s vocals being removed, even though she's still credited as a songwriter.
Others simply prefer the original over the Drake version.
Below are some tweets from South African music fans and personalities such as DJ Fresh, DJ Zan D, Nasty C, Culoe De Song, DJ Fresh, and Cassper Nyovest about the song and Drake's More Life.

Drake is trash and Bucie's Superman is better.

I'd be living in denial if i were to blame Drake for not using Bucie on his record bcoz the song for me is still Superman we know #MoreLife
