The reason why DJ Prince Kaybee has “lack of respect” towards Black Coffee has been revealed and it was caused by their heated exchanges in the past.

For months now, Mzansi has witnessed the “hostility” and twars between Prince Kaybee and Black Coffee, where spicy clapbacks were exchanged between the pair.

However, many do not understand why the two DJs never seem to get along.

In a recent video interview with Everything SA Music, Prince Kaybee got candid about his feelings towards the world renowned DJ.

“I’ve got this thing about me … apparently it’s being arrogant. I really need you to earn my respect from a very personal point. Respect and recognition are two different things. I can recognise you as the world’s number one DJ but you can’t force me to respect you,” Kaybee said.

The uWrongo hitmaker mentioned that for him respect was a deeply personal thing, which he didn’t just let out willy nilly. He continued to say that while he’s not taking anything away from how successful or talented DJ Black Coffee is, he felt Black Coffee did not deserve his respect.

Last year Prince Kaybee and Black Coffee had a go at each other in a war of words on Twitter and fans were left in shock.

It all began when Kaybee shared a very cryptic tweet about “local celebrities”.

At the time, the Charlotte hitmaker tweeted, “The problem is that celebrities fall for the same trap all the time, ‘the urge to sound wise’. You watch a few YouTube videos, you (sic) wanna sound intelligent. Carry on, you will meet your maker.”

Finding Kaybee’s motive was, was very difficult for fans and no clear connection was made, therefore tweeps quickly speculated it was a sub towards Euphonik. This because, just a few hours earlier, the good Prince had a fiery exchange with Euphonik about sharing industry advice with upcoming artists.

However things went the other way which was not unexpected when Black Coffee joined the chat group.

The DJ questioned Kaybee if he thought he was a celebrity. Tweeps tagged that particular tweet as shade, and that’s when all the drama began.

Prince Kaybee replied to Coffee’s tweet, saying he didn’t really care about labels, especially from the industry, because he knows he’s an artist and creator.

“I see myself more as a servant of the people. If people wish to call me a celebrity or celebrate me it’s a blessing. I’m an artist and creator first. I don’t care much about the definitions of the industry because I know who and what I am.”

Ever since that day, things have never been the same.
