Perhaps it's social distancing and the loneliness or pure boredom it sometimes come with, but Prince Kaybee's shade-throwing skills have reached an elite level.

The Charlotte hitmaker - completely unprovoked - took to Twitter this week to talk about an effect of the coronavirus that he felt may be a huge disadvantage to some over-hyped SA artists.

"So I’ve realised that during this time, artists that depend on hype are gonna have a problem. The consumer has more time to stream and listen to talent, not 'Did you hear ***** performed on top of a taxi?'" he wrote.

Tweeps had a field day trying to pin down who exactly Kaybee was taking a shot at.

Some arrived at the conclusion that it is Cassper, because he's performed on top of a combi before.

Just as the Tsibipians were about to come for Kaybee, Maphorisa entered the equation - just to let Prince know that he's still hyped and properly streamed on these streets .

"I'm not gonna have a problem and I'm still hyped," said Phori, sparking a response from Kaybee.

Iyo!

Lol! Why all the shade, gents?
