Prince Kaybee has taken to social media to apologise to the woman who is being beaten in a video that is trending online. The woman in the viral Themba video has specifically told the award-winning musician to stay out of her business.
Kaybee had earlier shared his two cents on gender-based violence (GBV) after the clip of the lady being beaten by her partner, only known as Themba, started doing rounds on Twitter. Kaybee expressed that he was concerned that there were other Thembas out there who never make it to social media.
The woman in the disturbing video decided to slam Kaybee for his comments on GBV. She shared another video which was specifically directed to Prince Kaybee. "Please, Prince Kaybee stay away from my business," she expressed.
The Hosh hitmaker took to the micro-blogging app on Thursday, 3 December to apologise to the woman. The musician said:
"I would like to apologise for my opinion about the lady's abusive r/ship, it might have made her situation worse but I hope and pray she finds the strength to help herself leave. I’m aware the abuser is using the abused to scare help away, MEN WE DON'T BEHAVE LIKE THIS."
Kaybee's fans have taken to his comment section to share their thoughts on his apology. Many told the star he did the right thing by speaking up against GBV. Check out some of their comments below:
"Themba told her to say that. She's protecting her abusive boyfriend/husband. Next thing you end up dead protecting an animal, nxaaaa!"
"When you have to apologise for raising awareness about GBV... You did nothing wrong."
"Such is what we go through. We have to apologise for trying to help. It is the most defeating thing. It's also why many men are indifferent and look away. You see it from your sisters, where you want to go beat up the boyfriend and she tell you mind your own business."
"Maybe Themba asked her to take this video."
"You don't need to apologise, what you did was right. If we don't have people like you who speak out for other people then this world is nothing. If she opens a case against you tell them to come pick me too and everyone who re-tweeted it."
"You did well, continue talking against GBV. She is being told what to say again at the police station. The nerve of this guy."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Prince Kaybee is extremely concerned and saddened by the viral video that has done its rounds of a man beating his lady.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that the same lady has been recorded laying a charge against the person who posted the video of her being abused.
The woman says she is fine and well and is opening a case of defamation of character against the person who uploaded the video.
The video of the abuse starts with the lady asking someone to stop sending her messages on her personal WhatsApp number and to rather use the group chat. Before she could complete her sentence, a man off camera begins to beat her.
