An ecstatic Prince went berserk after finding out that he got featured in the list, saying this achievement made his year, “Just got off stage in Zambia and found out that @BarackObama listens to #Uwrongo . First of all shout out to the team @Ami_Faku, @Shimza01 and @RealBlackMotion. This just made my year.”
To many people’s surprise, DJ Euphonik also applauded Prince kaybee for this major win. If you may recall, Prince Kaybee got into a twar with Black Coffee after Prince Kaybee commented on a post which dragged his good friend DJ Euphonik. Prince and Euphonik had their fair share of a heated debate after Prince Kaybee said DJs must stop doing live sets for free. The ‘debate’ ended up being a fruitful exchange, which could help up and coming DJ’s.
But all is good between the three of them as Euphonik gave a young shout out to Prince Kaybee:
His bae Zola Zeelovin seems to be his biggest cheerleader as she congratulated Prince on his achievement.
“When you shed a tear on our call last night, I then knew you all the way Innnnn, you are special and for the rest of your days I just want you to be happy,” wrote Prince.
