Since Prince Kaybee has been in the game for quite some time and has the experience, we might as well take this as the gospel truth.
However, not everybody is in agreement on this and they made their thought be known on the sub-tweets.
“You only need consistency and a good marketing team… You don’t need to wait 6 six years like in the old days with social media and Streaming services in your pocket… You just need good music and proper marketing… I’ll start to go through my struggles this year✌” one @Envor16 tweeted.
Responses from fans who both agreed and disagreed with the multi award winning artiste and DJ.

Most in the comments fail to realise what is “real money” to them may not be real money to KABILLION.
