Prince Kaybee is one of South Africa’s most popular musicians. He is a talented percussionist and DJ. He was born in Senekal, near Welkom in South Africa, on 15 June 1989. Despite his obvious talent, Prince Kaybee has had anything but an easy childhood.

Prince Kaybee claims that he has never had a relationship like the one he had with Zola. He enjoyed talking to her, and the relationship had more to it than just sex.
