As Prince Kaybee gears up for the release of his album, Project Hope, which drops on Friday, 2 October 2020, the artists featured on the album are already making a name for themselves in the African music industry. In a tweet shared on Thursday, 30 September 2020, the producer revealed that three of his prodigies have already landed their first gigs.
He tweeted, “Listen I AM PROUD. 3 of the #ProjectHope ladies bagged their first gig, the album is not even out yet. Babies are performing at the Arts Alive Fest TODAY. Please help me congratulate them.” The three up and coming singers who performed at the event were Talitha Mteto, Sanda Esse and Basetsana Kolwane.
Prince Kaybee is currently on a mission to open up the industry, and has been full steam ahead when it comes to finding fresh talent and giving them the platform to showcase themselves. Aside from Project Hope, the Fetch Your Life creator launched the Producer Challenge, which focused on finding those who have the skills to make and master killer tracks.
In a tweet on Wednesday, 30 September 2020, it was revealed that the musician had gifted the competition winners with a music studio, where they are able to produce music gold. The winners' studio was filled with smiles as they looked determined to make Prince Kaybee proud in their decked-out studio.
Aside from his generous gift, Prince Kaybee also provided the winners with equipment, on top of the laptop he delivered, in order to complete their production studio.
Even though he didn't acknowledge the request at first, he quietly did so by pimping out their studio with studio sets, and the aspiring producers were beyond the moon. "We just got brand new studio sets from @PrinceKaybee_SA as He promised, our music journey will never be the same. We still can't believe u did this for us. Thank you very much may you live long, HOSH. #princekaybeeproducerchallenge"
Prince Kaybee started this initiative due to lack of opportunities for producers in the entertainment industry, he came to this realisation after the success of his first project, called Project Hope. A 10-track collaborative album with aspiring female singers in South Africa to work with him on new songs, as backup vocal singers.
