Popular DJ Prince Kaybee shocked many when he revealed on Tuesday that he had not completed matric, but what was more surprising about his revelation was his reason for not doing so.

While many may assumed he dropped out willingly, the Gugulethu hitmaker explained that he was expelled from his high school after doing a “360 spin” of his teacher’s car on school grounds.

“I got expelled, I took my teachers car and did a 360 spin at the fields to look cool. She always let me drive her car but that day peer pressure took the better of me and here I am today without Matric,” he tweeted.

Although the DJ has now made a name for himself in the music industry, he encouraged others to complete their high school careers.

“Yes I did not finish my Matric, But I’m sure knowing that you can be the best you can ever be from an early age worked to your advantage, keep well,” he responded to a troll who tried to bash him for his lack of achievement.

Fellow muso Cassper Nyovest also dropped out of high school. Speaking to our sister magazine, Move!, in 2015, Cassper revealed that he did not believe that school was his path.

Going to school wasn't my path to follow. I don't have time," he said before adding that he really doesn't need school for what he is doing right now.

"I will go back to school maybe someday when I'm bored. I won't go back right now,” he said.

While many social-media users commented on Prince Kaybee being an inspiration, others made fun of his “rivalry” with Cassper, pointing out that they had something in common.
