Taking to social media, Prince Kaybee offered some logical words of advice on how a talented person can grow their potential. He says people should guide the potential someone has instead of just praising them. This, according to Prince, hurts the persons success.

His new album Gemini is going to be his 5tH and Prince said he worked day and night to craft it. "My 5th studio Album titled Gemini is almost ready, been crafting this piece day and night. Look out for release date," he announced.

Prince also said he mastered this album himself and that is making him very nervous.

His project before this one is called The 4th Republic, and it did not do well. This might be because of the hype Amapiano and Prince Kaybee himself said this and added that the genre is absolutely competitive. He even recalled playing at a gig and the crowd was not feeling his set. So much to the point where a female came to him and told him that he should change and pay Amapiano

He also put the blame on the people from the record label saying they failed to push his album.

“Yeah it was fumbled, but part of it is the dominance of Amapiano, majority people want Amapiano. I was playing at a club two weeks ago and a girl approached me asking when am I playing it and also why am I not dancing like Waffles,” he said on Twitter.

Speaking on whether his genre is dead in SA because of the Yanos, Prince Kaybee said he does believe so but either way, he would be good with that.

“In SA maybe, but I no longer do music to survive so it doesn’t really affect me. Its just the love that's keeping me in studio,” he said in response to a fan who asked him the fate of the genre.

But he says the challenge turns him on and he will gladly put up with competition.

“I love being challenged, its beautiful, there’s something about being under pressure that turns me on (not sexually) but competitively. So its game on for me, if you guys don’t like a song we just go to the next and continue like that.”

He once mentioned in an interview with Okay Africa that the 4th Republic, had a huge influence from his fans.

"I have done a lot for South Africans, people are vibing to the music. Now there are a lot of other things I want to focus on. I am not leaving music completely, I will still make music for other people but the brand Prince Kaybee for now I don't think has more to offer or change for the lack of a better word," he said to the publication.

Prince Kaybee then said this would be his last project but he will not be quitting music altogether.
