Prince Kaybee is showing his support for South Africans who are against the COVID-19 lockdown.
Several anti-lockdown marches were planned for Wednesday, June 30.
“Lockdowns are against humanity. Ramaphosa’s administration is killing us with hunger. Why are we subjected to these lockdowns when the ANC leaders continue to loot the funds meant to fight the virus?” one poster read.
Prince Kaybee told one group of protestors they can count on him being there.
I’ll be there https://t.co/Fyh9jmmjh8

Many praised the ‘Gugulethu’ hitmaker for supporting the cause.
“And then they still ask why you’re so successful and loved. BECAUSE HE IS ONE OF OUR OWN!” one tweep commented.
“Actions Speak Louder Than Words! I Stan Bozza,” another added.
Prince Kaybee took things one step further and promoted the march on all his social media platforms.
However, it seems only a few people pitched up for the Wednesday marches. Prince Kaybee also seemed unsure about whether it was still on.

Despite the low attendance, organisers and participants were happy to play their part.
“Whether it’s one man or one-and-a-half men, WE SHALL PROTEST,” one Bloemfontein protestor wrote.

But some were not as forgiving. One Twitter user said people had no problem filling up clubs.
“Every weekend, every club in SA is full but when it’s time for anti lockdown march no1 wants to participate…Lockdown is not affecting y’all the way you say it is I guess.”

Celebrities slam level 4 alert
Prince Kaybee is not the only celebrity who is against the lockdown.
“I’m gutted for every single freelancer, influencer, artist, creative etc that’s going to wake up to “Due to Covid…” emails & messages tomorrow morning,” Candice Modiselle tweeted shortly after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the level 4 lockdown restrictions.
Kwesta told his followers that the government has been the cause of many of his “darkest thoughts and toughest times”.
“It’s not my n****s. It’s not my “enemies”… It’s them! It’s all of them! The worst part is that they’ll live to see the otherside of Covid and watch all of us go broke and die.”
Cassper Noyovest was set to launch his new campaign with Root Of Fame on Monday. But the entire launch had to be put on ice.
“All the money down the drain… I feed families my guy. I know you think it’s easy cause I always have a smile on my face but my downfall means a lot of people lose their jobs. We gone be ayt doe. Hope everyone else survives too.”
