A peep by the Twitter handle @ChefAnderson5 said Kaybee should do Amapiano:

"At this point, you should have done piano too dawg. If you approached it like Maphorisa did you could have been relevant. I stopped listening after Gugulethu coz I felt the same way also, and you were here before the Yanoz, but they almost wiped yall out. They will soon."

An unbothered Prince responded by saying he does not need music to survive.

"I don’t do music for survival, and when you stopped listening I lost nothing."

Kaybee responds to more negative comments from critics

The hateful comments kept coming, but Kaybee had time to respond to some of them.

The Gugulethu hitmaker said @SirTanga_ should instead listen to his old music after stating that Music Theory has zero hit songs.

"I Appreciate your truth…, enjoy the old stuff G."

Kaybee then schooled user @Bokenza1, who said he should spend more time in the studio making his music, and maybe he will receive enough streams.

The producer said spending months in the studio does not guarantee music streams, as his most successful album only took three weeks to compile.

"You are wrong about a lot…1. Spending months perfecting an album doesn’t guarantee commercial success, My most successful album took me 3 weeks to compile and we are over 100 Million streams with it… 2. I do expect something in return but not money, impact."
