Prince Kaybee took to his social media pages to urge African artists to come together to make a song that will unite the continent.
On Wednesday, 4 September 2019, celebrated producer-DJ, Prince Kaybee, took to his social media pages to add his voice to the growing list of artists opposed to the current violent unrest in South Africa. Moreover, the Gugulethu hitmaker proposed a way to unite African artists. His suggestion was to make a song together using a beat he has.
In the Twitter post, the Re Mmino creator wrote, “… I have a beat, I know it’s tense and being creative is the last thing on your minds. But tag your favourite artists to come on board and put positive thoughts on a song, it’s not enough but it’s a step in the right direction! I’ll be waiting.”
Many of the comments on the post were positive replies from his followers, mainly suggesting a host of South African musician from various genres. One follower suggested AKA, Sho Madjozi and Okmalumkoolkat.
One follower suggested a pan-African line-up which included Stogie T, Zakwe, Anatii, Yanga Chief, Sjava, Kwesta, Busiswa, Zonke, Cassper Nyovest, Lady Zamar and Davido. About the suggested string of artists, the fan went on to say, “You all can make a great feature if you can put your differences aside and do this for women, the African nation that you claim to love.” Another fan who agreed added more names, saying, “Burna Boy, Ice Prince, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid, and not forgetting Nasty C. Please give us a uniting song, instead of fighting.”
There were a host of other artists included by other followers. The most poignant point, however, was made by one of the last comments on the post by a fan that wrote, “You must bring different styles too, to unite [the] nation, bro. To #SayNoToXenophobia.”
Also I have a beat, I know its tense and being creative is the last thing on your minds. But tag your favorite artists to come on board and put positive thoughts on a song, its not enough but its a step in the right direction‼️ I’ll be waiting??
