Prince Kaybee got on the wrong side of drinking Twitter when he advised people to rather save their money instead of buying booze.
He wrote, "Don't buy alcohol, we need every cent."
While some agreed with him, soon his page was flooded with tweeps slamming him and saying they would rather save money by not buying his music.

The muso explained that he had friends who were borrowing money to go buy booze.
He said, “Not trying to sound smart at all. (These are) just my thoughts during the most challenging time in the history of mankind. We (are) better off saving. But if you don’t understand, keep it moving."
Kaybee added that “for the alcohol industry to survive it's not up to the poor, it's up to those who can afford it."
Peeps countered with the fact that they, unlike Kaybee's friends, had budgeted properly for their alcohol consumption.
One user was dragged by celebs like Boity, Andile Ncube and Lexi Van for suggesting that people should rather invest in property or make investments instead of purchasing liquor..
Boity exclaimed, “So I must leave 6 pack ya R150 and go buy a house with that money? Just leave people to spend their money as they please, man. Jeez!"
