Several years after bursting into the spotlight as a contestant on SABC 1's DJ reality show 1's And 2's  Prince Kaybee will be returning to the show as a judge.

A fresh faced Prince Kaybee won the second season of the show after impressing previous judges DJs SPHEctacula and Naves.

The Charlotte hitmaker has travelled the world and topped the charts countless times since he first appeared on the show to take his shot at fame and told TshisaLIVE it was a dream come true to finally be asked to be on the judging panel.

"I'm super excited about being a judge on the show that basically helped launched my career into mainstream. Even before I got the call from the team I had been dreaming of one day hosting the very same show. I didn't expect it to happen so soon though. It is a dream come true." 

The muso said he had been "mentally ready for it for a while" and knew exactly what he was looking for in a contestant 

"I've had ideas of what I would focus on if I was a judge. So now that the opportunity has come, it's basically just acting out my dreams on the show. I think I bring real life hope to the new contestants. I am living proof that the show really does change lives."

Prince Kaybee said the show's ability to launch careers should not be underestimated and that he was taking the task of finding an "even better Prince Kaybee" really seriously.

"The contestants will be under more pressure realising what is at stake. Its not just the prize of winning but a whole career is at stake. So I'm also excited for the contestants too especially for this season and the impact my presence will have on their psychology."
