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.
