PRINCE KAYBEE ON FORMULA 1 COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA
The South African previously reported that the CEO of Formula 1, Stefano Domenicali, arrived in South Africa to begin talks to bring the racing event to the Kyalami Circuit in Gauteng.
Taking to Twitter on 14 June, Prince Kaybee said he “didn’t see the need” to bring the race to Kyalami when South Africa is still facing issues of high unemployment and expensive education.
“To host an F1 race is close to 600 million or more. Why spend so much money over a weekend that’s gonna benefit a minority,” wrote the DJ.
“The Malaysian government spent $67 million to host an F1 race with little return, they had to cancel it.”
TWEEPS BLAST PRINCE KAYBEE’S COMMENTS
Reacting to the muso’s comments, tweeps were not too pleased with his opinion and told him to “stay in his lane”.
“As far as I know, the government has nothing to do with F1 coming here. Kyalami is private owned land,” wrote one tweep.
“Stick to DJing and looking pretty,” wrote one tweep.
“Just focus on making music bro, we have people for this”.
