Mabala Noise Drama: On Monday morning, Sidlukotini hitmaker Riky Rick took to social media to announce that he is leaving Mabala Noise for good.
After much speculations over the past two weeks on his relationship with the label which appears to have hit the rocks, rapper Riky Rick has confirmed that he has cut ties with his record label Mabala Noise.
In a series of tweets, the 29-year-old explained to his fans that he has cut ties with the label. He also gave his reasons as follows;
“Dear friends and fam, The past couple weeks have been hectic. The metro speech was a moment of clarity for me. Brought me back to reality.
I didn’t think about the consequences or who would get mad. I just wanted to do the right thing. Inspire the kids to not be slaves to THEM.
You might see all this material s**t and think It makes life easier. It doesn’t. Money is just an illusion to keep us making DUMB decisions.
At this point they have taken back what they think makes me happy. They have threatened the future of me and my family. They want us gone.
They gonna want you to believe that I’m crazy or I’m playing politics. NO. IM JUST WOKE.
You Can’t Sell Your Soul bro… It doesn’t belong to you. It belongs to God.
I’m begging all you talented kids out there. Don’t go the road I had to go. Pave your own way. Don’t anybody try steal your movement.
I say that to say this…
The world is ready for us to be ourselves. I didn’t think its time but you all encouraged me with all your emails and tweets. Let’s rebuild.
After long prayer and conversation with God, I am no longer part of Mabala Noise [sic] Blessings to everyone there. Thank you for the love.”
Nevertheless, the record label has refuted Riky’s declaration that he has terminated his contract with them.
Following the bombshell the rapper dropped, Mabala Noise’s Head of Communication, Mhlo Gumede made it clear that their contract with Sidlukotini hitmaker Riky Rick has not been officially terminated.
Mabala Noise signed a deal with Riky last June and according to the label, it is still valid for the next 3 years.
The rapper has not commented on this new scene of the Mabala Noise drama.
