Taking to Twitter, in response to the announcement by entertainment commentator and TV host Phil Mphela, Prince Kaybee expressed his disappointment, insisting that, although he’s excited about the recognition, he wished someone else would have “gotten the nod”.

He said: “I wish someone else could’ve gotten the nod, really tired of these wins and don’t get celebrated enough.”

It seems the statement has left a bitter taste in the mouth of many of his fans, with many saying Prince Kaybee just stop with his “drama” and celebrate this huge milestone.
