Social media feuds can start in many ways but no one really knows is if what caused them are intentional.
Heavyweight producer, Prince Kaybee learned this the hard way as he got caught in a crossfire for ‘innocently’ celebrating his recent win.
The award show recognizes and honours DJs and House artists for their work as well as their contribution to the genre.
While accepting the award, the beat maker’s booking manager failed to mentioned Msaki (the singer who penned the song and whose vocals are on it).
Later on, when Prince Kaybee shared the video of the speech, he also did not mention the singer’s name, or correct the mishap in a tweet which he deleted later.
Enraged by it, fans took to social media to call the DJ and his team out while also seeking a response from the singer.
When a fan suggested giving the “Gugulethu“ mastermind the benefit of the doubt, the singer replied saying she was cool with it but wondered if he forgot or ran out of characters with all that’s going on in the world.
In a bid to right his wrongs, the DJ revealed that the “we” in his post indicated that the singer was acknowledged for her contribution to the track. He apologized on behalf of his booking manager saying they all meant no harm.
Last one from me regarding this @Msaki_ZA issue. I always acknowledge artists in public or private‼️‼️

An unimpressed Msaki still stressed that she didn’t mind about the manager’s forgetfulness but this prompted Prince Kaybee to end the back and forth by saying he always appreciates his artists.
