DJ Maphorisa vs. Prince Kaybee – The War of Big Egos

Don’t be expecting a collabo from these two anytime soon.



DJ Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee

They are two of the biggest South African artists right now.

And with all kinds of commercial plaques to showcase for their impact on the culture, both DJ Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee have many bragging tools at their disposal.

The house music producers are now using those tools to win an ‘I’m bigger than you’ contest we didn’t know was needed.

It all started when DJ Maphorisa threw shade at Prince Kaybee, Lady Zamar and Mafikizolo, tossing them out the window for not owning masters of their own music.


Lady Zamar hit back by saying she refuses to indulge Phorri’s display of shady pettiness, because “empty tins make the loudest noise.”

Less inclined to take digs laying low is Prince Kaybee, who’s proven to everyone how he is ever ready to indulge in a heated quarrel with his industry peers. The Gugulethu hitmaker hit back by claiming to have outsold DJ Maphorisa’s triumphant 2019 catalogue of street anthems and chart toppers with but one song.

The two then spent the whole day publishing receipts of their commercial success, each one claiming to have had bigger success in streaming performance, and album sales. They took each other on who has the bigger catalogue of hits, who has the bigger bank account and who has made the better business moves.


Both famed producers have quite the history of being involved in feuds. DJ Maphorisa has had his strife with Cassper Nyovest, now a constant collaborator whom he has recently reconciled. Prince Kaybee has been at loggerheads with a number of local artists, including beef favourite Cassper Nyovest, Msaki and TNS.

While fans have been loving the nasty exchanges, an unlikely figure has intervened to encourage the two to look beyond their differences. Mmusi Maimane’s political experience git some practice when he told the two “Both of you have smaller arms than me. Ngiyi Tazz yama bicep”, while urging them to use their music for good.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.
