Another star artist has left their label.

2017 seems to be the year of big and bold moves. Just a few weeks after the year kicked off, Ambitious Entertainment was hit with a mass exodus of some of its key artists. Now it seems the next label to be affected is Mabala Noise.

On Monday morning Riky Rick took to his Twitter account to share a heartfelt message about the perils of the industry and the importance of not "selling your soul". The Boss Zonke rapper kept it real and shared how his recent speech at an award show where he called on young artists to disregard mainstream TV and radio had landed him in more trouble than he could have imagined and has since put his family at risk.

He closed off the lengthy messages by announcing his departure from Mabala Noise. The move comes as a shock to the industry as Riky hadn't even reach a year with the label after signing to them in an undisclosed but rumoured multi-million rand contract in July of 2016. The label themselves are yet to make an official statement but interestingly enough Riky Rick had already been left out of the line-up for the Mabala Noise Celebration that took place this past weekend.
