DJ Prince Kaybee was one of the celebrities who voiced their concerns against his music rights approach.

In response to DJ Maphorisa’s sentiments, Prince Kaybee said, “Growing up I’ve changed my beliefs. I now believe in working together on creative projects is about the IP sharing. So, someone must write a song, produce a beat and craft it, and you own everything cause you bought Nando’s and lights?”
