AWARD-WINNING producer and club DJ Prince Kaybee is accused of stealing a song.
Up-and-coming Sharpeville rapper Samuel Mokhele claims the Free State-born DJ stole his song Wajellwa, which won him many awards.
“Prince Kaybee stole my concept and even had the nerve to admit that publicly when I confronted him on Twitter,” Samuel said.
Kaybee demanded that Samuel prove that the song belonged to him.
Samuel, aka “JustSam”, said he tried to engage Kaybee, but the DJ ignored him.
“I play around a lot with music. I did a track using one of the international beats and released the song in 2013.
“In 2014, I met Cassper Nyovest at the Castle Lite music tour in a bid to do a remix, only to find that he knew my track and was interested to be featured on it,” said JustSam.
JustSam said Cassper was supposed to be on the remix of the track, which also featured DJ X Angel, who helped him build his brand at the time.
“We had to remake the song on the new beat as the first one had an international beat. I was shocked to learn Kaybee had a track titled Wajellwa.
