While many people are being introspective about their lives and imagining what the “new normal” will be after lockdown, music producer and club DJ Prince Kaybee plans to come out of this period as a new artist.

 Kaybee has revealed that the first show he will do once everyone is free, will be like his first time ever.

He told TishaLIVE he was going to give his fans the best set ever, post-lockdown.

“It’ll be like a brand new artist who just took a shot at making the dream a reality.” 

The muso stopped performing  last month due to the lockdown restrictions.

He said he had always tried to reinvent himself, often taking fans way back to when he was trying to break into the industry.

“I come from an era where we used to DJ using CDs. I used CDs, not USBs.

“All I wanted to do was play music and be this big star. I wanted to provide for my family and inspire many others out there. I was yearning to be the best in deejaying and music.” 

Kaybee said circumstances led him to be the renowned DJ he is today.

He credited “sushi king” and businessman Kenny Kunene for sparking his interest in house music.

“I dropped out of grade 11. My high school teacher was Kenny Kunene, who used to play a lot of house music and I was inspired by his vibe. He used to play house music at school outings or after we played soccer.”

“He used to take me home after school and we’d listen to house music. He was a very driven guy when it came to house music. After that, I dropped out and I took that inspiration to start deejaying.”

The DJ was appreciative of the throwbacks people sent him on social media.

“It often gets me emotional, as you’ll be able to look at where you come from, and I hope my journey is inspiring other hungry hopefuls out there.”
