Prince Kaybee is one of our favourite artists who keeps bringing in the greatest hits.  When his hit 'Club Controller' got onto the music scene, it immediately got everybody dancing. His hard work and determination have got him to where he is today. 

Here's a look at his biography.

Prince Kaybee #SAMA26

Multi-award winning artist Prince Kaybee, is absolutely reaping the rewards of his hard work. The DJ is on a celebratory mode after winning big at the South African Music Awards (SAMA26).

The DJ who was recently accused of buying his nominations after he bagged 9 nods was awarded with the Male Artist Of The Year award for his album Re Mmino. Prince Kaybee was nominated along with the likes of Samthing Soweto and Benjamin Dube on the same category.

Congratulations to the Prince for this big win

Prince Kaybee Girlfriend

Brown Mbombo reclaimed her ‘bae’ status in Prince Kaybee’s life. The couple seemed happy to be back together and closer than ever before, but they insisted that they were in no hurry to get married. 

Their adoring fans were guessing for months on whether they had reunited as a couple or not. Rumours about their relationship had been doing their rounds after businesswoman Brown Mbombo let slip, hinting on social media that she, and Kaybee were more than just friends. They instantly received positive feedback with heart-shaped hands and love emojis filling their social media pages.

When Kaybee posted a snap of himself holding hands with Mbombo he finally confirmed that he and Brown Mbombo were back together.

However, it seems the two are not together anymore as Prince reportedly has a new bae in his life.  Prince Kaybee has finally confirmed his relationship with media personality Zola Ayabulela Mhlongo.

Prince Kaybee jokingly asked bae to come over and cook for him, instead of fantasize about Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beats. A fan quickly inserted themselves into the conversation and stated, “For that comment you should make him cook for himself!!”, to which Zola defended her man by stating, “imagine a hungry Kabillion babe, Nah my baby must eat.”

Well, it seems congratulations are in order to the happy couple

Prince Kaybee and Maphorisa At It Again

Ahead of his Lockdown House Party appearance, the Hosh creator that has made headlines on and off this past week let it known that he is not interested in trending during his tonight.

Instead he suggested another hashtag for his fans to use if they are enjoying his set; #RacismMustFall.

Even  his favorite Twitter troll, DJ Maphorisa commented on the post showcasing that the two are actually friendly, by writing that Prince Kaybee for the tweet.

Are the two ever going to call a truce?

Kaybee - Maphorisa Feud : Where It All Began

Who would've thought two of the most popular DJs', Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee would go head to head in a week-long feud over socials?

Also read: Prince Kaybee VS Maphorisa: Is There Really Beef?

It started when Maphorisa owned the trends list after he called out Prince Kaybee, Lady Zamar and Mafikizolo for allegedly not owning the masters to their music.

Owning your masters in music is a pretty big deal as it allows you the rights to how your music is used by productions or other artists for sampling. All revenue from the successes of these avenues, your music is used is given to you.

So, when Maphorisa came with the jabs about owning his music, Prince Kaybee clapped back and gave a list of things he owned and but however impressive the list- it still didn't prove that Prince Kaybee owned his masters.

The back and forth continued with both artists defending themselves against the other for the week, to the extent that DJ Zinhle felt the need to intervene.

And just when we thought we'd never know what life was like before the feud began, Maphorisa waved a white flag and called a truce and asked Prince Kaybee help him raise funds for charity.

But this isn't Prince Kaybee's first time in the boxing ring. He has had words on social media with Cassper Nyovest but Cassper has chosen to the higher road by not engaging and calling Prince Kaybee 'obsessed'.

He loves cars so much that he came up with an amazing idea to shows his fans appreciation by getting them to sign his car. The star has turned the tables on his adoring fans and instead of giving them his autograph, he has been asking them for theirs.

Kaybee said to TshisaLIVE, “I have always tried to involve my fans in my life and, at the same time, move the support forward. That was when I thought they should sign something. T-shirts and CD’s are overrated. So I put my car on the spot and see how this goes.”

Prince Kaybee also surprised his mother with a new luxury Mercedes Benz. The DJ posted a picture of his Mom receiving the car and the caption read, “Sho Oulady, here’s an early Christmas present to take you to the mall. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there and give you your gift personally but you know I got you! The part where you cry breaks me because not so long ago you were starving yourself so that I can eat.

And to all my fans, you guys made this possible so on behalf of my Mother, THANK YOU… RE TSWA HOLE MOSADI !!! Regards. Your Son, Kabelo Motsamai”

Prince Kaybee Controversy

Kaybee and TNS broke out in a war of words against each other on social media over Banomoya and Club Controller alleged non-payment. They were co-producers on the songs. TNS argued that Kaybee had not paid him for his part of the work, which was an allegation denied by Kaybee providing a paper trail that confirmed payment to TNS.

Prince Kaybee denied the claims by TNS on social media.

“I assured that he got bookings through my personal network and featured him on events to help him build his name and career. He lived in my home for the entire year in 2018 after he told me that he has no proper shelter, clothes or money to pursue his music. I took care of his life expense during this period and I can provide proof of the money spent on him. I bought him clothes, a phone, and gave him a car to pursue his work activities… I will take the hard lessons that came with my kindness but I will not stop believing or supporting young talent because of one bad experience with a greedy individual,” said Prince Kaybee.

But the issue was later resolved and TNS took to IG to thank Prince Kaybee for his help and referred to him as "Dad".

The two have now made peace and look to each other with respect and admiration.
