Prince Kaybee recently reflected on the entertainment industry. The musician made an observation that the entertainment industry is set out for individuals that are considered as “entertainers” but cannot be associated with having genuine “talent”!he way in which the entertainment industry is set out will continuously spark a debate. Musician and DJ, Kabelo Motsamai (32) popularly known as
Prince Kaybee took to Twitter to state his observation on the entertainment industry:
“It’s called the ENTERTAINMENT industry, not the TALENT industry, that’s why sometimes the talented don’t trend and those who are entertaining with zero talent trend. You can entertain people by being super talented same way that you can entertain by lacking talent.”
Prince Kaybee indicates that the entertainment industry commemorates ‘talentless’ individuals that are considered as ‘entertaining’ and are always witnessed trending on the socials. Kaybee recognizes how individuals that exude ‘talent’ are overlooked and are not renowned, as their talents are appraised as a result of not being as popular.
Prince Kaybee’s commentary may have alluded to a conversation on Twitter, as tweeps debated on the truths of his tweet.
“True. That’s why people who are talented aren’t recognized in this industry. It’s people who’ve got some influence and mostly on social media who are being considered. You can even see on this acting industry that people who are whack are acting just ‘coz of popularity nje.” – @Ori_Debig_Beats tweeted.
Prince Kaybee later engaged with a tweep, and disagreed with his way of thinking after an individual with the Twitter handle @ChakeleL tweeted: “KB, ability to entertain is a talent too.”
“What a horrific train of thought mate, we really need to give talent some respect hey. My baby girl speaks funny because she’s an infant, that’s entertaining, is that a talent?” – Prince Kaybee responded.
This is without a doubt, a debate that the entertainment industry should take the time to engage with, as a number of individuals continue to view the industry in this light – “prioritizing popularity over talent.”
