South African producer and disc jockey Prince Kaybee took to X (the social media previously known as Twitter) on Thursday, 1 February and revealed that he never made it to Grade 12 since he dropped out following his expulsion in Grade 10.


Prince Kaybee is known for his smash hit songs Fetch Your Life, Club Controller, Banomoya featuring Busiswa, and more. In 2023, the Charlotte hitmaker was ranked amongst the top 10 highest-paid musical artists in the country by Briefly.


Which is why it came as a shock to many when he revealed that he only made it to Grade 10.

“I dropped out in Grade 10. [I] actually got expelled. I took my English teacher’s car and burned some rubber at the sports fields,” he said. “Her and I were close and I used to religiously drive her around, but that day the devil won,” he continued on his timelines.

“A bit later, life mo*red me nicely. After being expelled, I even got into some sh*t [that] I regret till this day,” he added.

His fans and social media followers have since reacted to his statements in the comment section. Netizens admitted that these days, education doesn’t necessarily guarantee success. They also expressed that they are proud to see that he never gave up on himself since ditching school so young.

‘That’s the interesting part of the journey right there. The reality about life is that it will throw you curve balls but you need to navigate through it, no matter how many times it knocks you down; you must get up and keep walking. Celebrate the quick wins, learn lessons and improve,” @SirBrayneZA commented.

“Big ups for turning your life around and doing good. Everyone deserves a second chance in this life thing 🤝🏾,” @Afroca665 wrote.

“Education is very important but it’s become overrated and useless in most http://cases.You can read and write and your talent has blessed you in ways that many educated people will never be blessed by their certificates,” @Sthembiso_RSA said.
