Prince Kaybee wants to be the best
DJ learns from his mistakes and wants to make a meaningful contribution to society as a man
AT this year’s SAMAs, Kabelo Motsamai, better known as Prince Kaybee (28), who was nominated in three categories, won the award for Best Male. After his win, Prince Kaybee, who was on tour in Zambia at the time, set out to Twitter to let everyone know that he is determined to be a better man. It didn’t take long before one follower said the Club Controller hit-maker was all talk but no action.
BECOMING A BETTER MAN
In the thread, Prince Kaybee started off by saying, “I want to take this, ‘Best Male’ award beyond my music. I wanna be a ‘Best Male’ in my life. I take full responsibility for not handling the papgeld matter well.”
The music producer also said he has since fixed things and built a good co-parenting relationship with the mother of his child. In the thread, Prince Kaybee also mentioned the current national crisis of women being abused by men. He challenged all men to join him in a quest to become better men. Many of his fans congratulated him for manning up and speaking about his shortcomings in public.
Speaking about the award, Prince Kaybee says, “Winning this award feels good. I’ve won so many awards but this one has grounded me. Since I am against women abuse and absent fathers, I started the Best Male campaign. I felt many men needed a push by a public figure to do the right thing.”
BLACK TWITTER TRIES TO STEAL THE MOMENT
One user sent a tweet that implied that Prince Kaybee was not sincere about being a ‘Best Male’.
“You have a girlfriend but you are in Zambia with an escort,” says the follower.
The user also shared the Instagram story of the alleged escort, who is known as Thembakazi Matroshe. In her story, Thembakazi posted a video of herself with Prince Kaybee’s Club Controller playing in the background. This was after she shared a post congratulating him for his win. The video was taken at the same venue where Prince Kaybee was at in Zambia.
To this, the Free State-born star says, “We were at an event and we were all chilling at the pool area. I saw that girl and many other South Africans, including Mafikizolo. So my photo was taken and put together with hers to create a story.”
The DJ says he laughed when he saw it and was not surprised by the efforts of Black Twitter.
Last year, Prince Kaybee told Move! how he has 35 siblings and only got to meet all of them at his father’s funeral when a pastor asked them all to come up on stage. He says family squabbles deprived him the opportunity to have a relationship with his siblings.
