In celebration of his new album, The 4th Republic, Apple Music today announced prolific producer and house DJ Prince Kaybee as the next Isgubhu cover star. Prince Kaylee’s takeover of the playlist includes a premier selection of dance music from all over Africa with homegrown talent Black Motion, Caiiro, Sculptured Music and Chymamusique, as well as Nigerian artists Olamide and Niniola amongst a host of others.
“It is an honour to be featured as this month’s Isgubhu hero artist, especially considering that the playlist represents the culture of house music.”
– Prince Kaybee
