Prince Kaybee Reflects on music career, aims to become more international in his Art:
Prince Kaybee was Unathi Nkayi’s recent guest on the Midday Joy on Kaya FM. He spoke about a range of topics including his career and upcoming album. The father to be is not too comfortable where he is at career wise and would love to taste international fame.
Prince Kaybee is currently working on his 5th studio album which will hit the streets in 2022. Speaking to Unathi about this, Prince Kaybee said he feels “old” because no one in this day and age reaches 5 studio albums and still remains relevant.
He rose to fame after winning SABC 1’s DJ competition show 1’s and 2’s. The nerdy dreadlocks, suit wearing DJ from the Free States kick started his career there and it remined in an upward trajectory. He has produces hit after hit even in this Amapiano crazed industry and still manages to remain relevant. Whilst the new kids in the block are getting international gigs, he is a bit worried that his life is currently local based.
Accomplished, is what Unathi said he is but he does not feel that way, in fact he is more concerned of his repetitive schedule, saying he wants more.
“There’s a lot I need to achieve so I wouldn’t say ‘accomplished’. It feels like I am doing the same thing over and over,” he said, adding that he is tired of travelling locally instead of internationally. “You just struggle to get out of the circle of your local support and love, which you need to grow from.”
Prince remains hopeful that bigger things will happen next year, “As far as that is concerned it worries me, but I guess bigger things will happen next year,” he said.
Bigger things will indeed happen in the near future as the Gugulethi hitmaker is going to be a father again. His bae Zola Ayabulela Mhlongo is expecting their first child together. Many people had though they had broken up after he cheated on her, but she stayed.
Announcing her pregnancy, Zola wrote, “My Greatest Gift. God has awarded me the opportunity to move into the next phase of my life. I AM A YUMMY MUMMY. Being your mother has been the most sacred duty I have ever taken on. My child you are the epitome of love. We haven’t even met you yet but you have already changed so much in our lives. For that we are truly blessed…We cannot wait to meet you. Your every kick ignites a wealth of love and joy in my heart. God is faithful.”
Congratulatory messages flowed but many people wanted to know who is the father of her child. Well turns out Prince Kaybee is!
He confirmed to TshisaLive that they never broke up and are excited to welcome their baby, “She’s not going anywhere.”
“I’m easily triggered…it’s not easy [turning the other cheek] psychologically how I grew up. You need to stand up for yourself as a man. As a boy it’s too much responsibility, so for me it f***ed with my mind for a very long time, [until] I met the girl of my dreams and we’ve been trying and trying…those kind of little things, gestures of love, they change you.”
