Prince Kaybee took to social media late on Wednesday, 9 June to encourage South Africans to invest in good generators as the electricity crisis continue in Mzansi.
Many people took to social media to vent out their frustrations when Eskom announced earlier that they'll move the country from Stage 2 to Stage 4 loadshedding.
The award-winning Mzansi musician joined scores of citizens who called government out for failing to deal with the crisis at power utility Eskom. The Hosh hitmaker urged his followers to buy good generators in order to keep their lights on at home when loadshedding hits. Prince Kaybee wrote:
"Invest in a good generator if you have the money. Its going to get worse #Loadshedding."
Tweeps took to his comment section to share their thoughts on his opinion. Check out some of the comments below:
"I don't understand why we're being punished like small kids."
"Or solar is better."
"Stage 10 is looming as winter just started."
"I have one, its chewing petrol like hell. We are suffering."
"How did we get to this level so quick?"
"Man, we're jumping stages from 2 to 4. Next we will be on 6, not that they are any different though."
Stage 4 loadshedding
In related news, Briefly News reported that as Covid-19 continues to negatively impact the country with the economy arguably taking the biggest blow the implementation of loadshedding, the upgrade to Stage 4 seems to be the salt on the wound for many South Africans.
Apart from businesses dependant on electricity losing money due to power cuts, many South Africans have taken to home-based online work as a last resort following the pandemic, a sector that is completely shut down by loadshedding.
Briefly News took to Twitter to see what some South Africans had to say about the matter. @LukhonaMnguni said:
"Stage 4 loadshedding and there is still no reconfiguration of the Board, no great movement on holding the CEO accountable, no word from the ministers responsible for Eskom and energy jointly. We are just vibing. What a terrible place these people are turning our beloved nationinto"
"More than 14 years of #Loadshedding and no clear plan to fix Eskom. Today we are back at Stage 4 loadshedding."
