Who Is Prince Kaybee and What Cars Are In His Collection?

Born Kabelo Motsamai but popularly known by his stage name, Prince Kaybee, the South African native is one of the finest disc jockeys in his country. The 33 year old DJ is also a music producer. His love for music has led him to make a remarkable career out of something that he started doing as a mere hobby. Prince Kaybee spoke about his love for music during an interview he granted and mentioned that he had been making beats and producing music for about ten years now.

Prince Kaybee Is Popular For His Luxurious Lifestyle And Love For Exotic Cars 

Prince Kaybee lives quite a luxurious lifestyle and has a penchant for cars. In an interview with image-line.com, he confessed that he loves cars, modifies them, and enjoys exploring more about specific brands. One of the brands we know he is in love with is Mercedes Benz. He owns a whole collection of cars and is always eager to show them off. He brags about them unapologetically and speaks proudly about how he acquires his cars without the aid of any bank.

The List of His Cars and Their Features

1. Mercedes Benz C63 AMG

The DJ also has a Mercedes Benz SLS worth upwards of R2.5 million in his car collection.  Its features include:

  • Heady 563 horsepower
  • 479 pound-feet of torque
  • Naturally-aspirated 6.2-litre V-8 eng
  • A pair of ‘gullwing’ doors

Prince Kaybee has gone on to pimp all these cars. It has been speculated that he has one more Mercedes Benz ride, making it a total of 4 Benz cars in his fleet of automobiles. In December 2018, he reportedly gifted his mum a Benz for Christmas, proving his love for the German carmaker.

That same year, the DJ came up with a clever idea. As a way of showing appreciation to his huge fan base, he asked his fans to come up and leave their signatures on one of his cars.  He also used it as a way to also sell his album. According to him, the idea was to have fans buy his album and then go next door to the store where you buy it and sign the car.

“If the car is full, we’ll be filling another car. If we need to give them another car, why not. I am nothing without my fans” he had told TshisaLIVE.

His $1.7 Million Net Worth Is Not Solely From Music Related Businesses

As of 2021, Prince Kaybee’s net worth was placed at approximately $1.7 million. His major source of income is music; DJing, album, and song sales, etc. One may wonder how Prince Kaybee is able to afford his luxurious lifestyle with his income coming solely from music but we have also been made to understand that apart from his successful musical career, Kaybee also owns a trucking company known as Prince Kaybee Holding.

During the 2020 lockdown that was imposed to help curtail the spread of the COVID 19 Virus, with an embargo placed on all outdoor activities including concerts and parties, Kaybee was said to have taken to his social media handle to gloat at fellow entertainers who did not have alternative sources of income. He specifically took a swipe at DJ Mophorisa and advised him to have other sources of income.

How His High School Teacher Influenced His Musical  Career

Prince Kaybee’s rise to fame is quite an interesting story. According to sources, he grew up in a polygamous family with 35 siblings but is the only son of his mother. The inspiration to join the Disc Jockey business came from one of his teachers in high school, with the stage name “Sushi King”. He watched Sushi king perform and he began to develop an interest in the art and started to learn how to produce music as well as mix songs as a DJ.

Kaybee eventually dropped out of school in grade 11 and ended up getting a girl pregnant. With the harsh reality of new responsibilities staring him in the face, he moved to Bloemfontein where he got his first job as a DJ in a Nigerian-owned club where he did exceptionally well at the job. With constant practice and talent at his disposal, he began to improve and also make more money. His career got a boost after he entered into an SABC1 competition and won.

His Rise Through The Ranks and The Works That Made Him Famous

Before his big break in 2015, Prince Kaybee was reported to have been working behind the scenes and was able to come up with more than 10 albums. After the successful outing in the SABC competition, he went on to release even more albums.

Subsequently, in 2019, he recorded another milestone when he released the much-anticipated album – Re’Mmino. He was able to win some awards and recognitions like Best South African DJ of the year. Below are the albums he worked on (in no particular order) before he became famous.

  • Partylands Electronica Vibe
  • Electro Elements spring. Vol 4 – 2014
  • Electo Elements Summer. Vol 11 – 2014

  • After hours: Electro Tales Vol 7 – 2014

In all of these, “Fetch your Life” and Re’Mmino is his most successful song and album so far. The album has earned him two plaques from the Universal Music group. We still look forward to more successful releases from the super talented Kaybee in the nearest future.

Awards and Recognitions He Has Received

In 2019, Prince Kaybee won his first international award at the Soundcity MVP Award in Nigeria. He won the Collaboration of the Year award that year after 5 nominations. Gugulethu was one of his biggest songs in 2019, featuring Indlovukazi, Supta, and the Afro Brothers. This is one of his biggest collaborations so far.

Once after being involved in a cheating scandal which he denied having, the lady involved revealed nude pictures of them having some cozy moments together. He later apologized to his fans and in what seemed to be an attempt to move on quickly from the drama, Kaybee announced that he had begun to receive endorsement deal proposals after his nude photos were leaked online. We are, however, yet to see any company or organization where he signed the endorsement deals with.
