Riky Rick is reportedly no longer part of controversial record label Mabala Noise.
After much speculation about whether or not the 29 year old has departed from the label following his damning speech at the Metro FM awards, Riky Rick penned his official exit to his 442 000 Twitter followers to end all doubt.
“After long prayer and conversation with God, I am no longer part of (Mabala Noise)”, he wrote, confirming what we talked to you about in this article.
After long prayer and conversation with God, I am no longer part of @Mabala_Noise ?? Blessings to everyone there. Thank you for the love.??

Riky’s exit from Mabala Noise comes just a week after music producer and rapper Gemini Major also announced that he will no longer be part of Cassper Nyovest’s record label Family Tree.
And weeks before that, Ambitiouz Entertainment A Reece, Fifi Cooper and Benchmarq in one go as their nasty dispute went public.
While the announcement has thrusted Mabala Noise back as a trending topic on Twitter, EFF leader Julius Malema is not one bit unnerved.
Malema reminded his followers how he had warned Riky Rick and Major Leaguez not to join the record label, which last year famously signed several artists, including Nasty C. At the time, the politician lashed the music label and alleged that it is a political money laundering scheme disguised as a legitimate record label.

MABALA NOISE: ‘OUR CONTRACT WITH RIKY REMAINS IN PLACE.’
Although everyone knows there’s not love lost between Riky Rick and Mabala Noise, the record label says the rapper is still contracted to them.
Speaking to Sowetan LIVE, Mabala Noise’s Head of Communication Mhlo Gumede said that their “long standing contract with Riky Rick is still in place.”
Riky Rick went on to reveal on Twitter that the music label has repossessed “things they think make me happy”, sparking speculation that he is referring to an expensive car he received from the label, who are now also reportedly demanding back the money he received as advance upon inking the deal with them.

K.O Reveals Third Album Details – Everything We Know
K.O has announced his third solo project.
On Monday, K.O delighted fans when he not only announced his long awaited third solo studio album, but also revealed the album artwork, along with the title.
Slated for release on September 27th, K.O’s third solo project is called PTY UnLTD.
Perfectly synchronised to launch along with the looming summer, the album will premiere during the commercial peak of his latest hit, Say U Will, the simmering collaborative joint that saw him team up with the beautiful Nandi Madida.
The songbird has been celebrating her first ever number one, which also marks KO’s successful revival.
PTY UnLTD will also come just months after the Cashtime catalogue was availed across digital streaming platforms earlier this year. “It’s a piece of history we wanted to preserve”, he told QuenchSA in an exclusive interview, in which he also began laying out the elements which will define his next sonic ecosystem.
The sound will not adhere to the trappings of Skhanda, the Hip Hop and Kwaito fusion he masterfully pioneered and popularised with his previous works. It’s a fresh start for K.O, who sees the successes of his recent releases – which includes Supa Dupa – as keys unlocking his next chapter.
“What I have coming up is gonna be appreciated on a large scale, just based on where I am. I think I found my feet again. I can’t wait for people to hear”, he told QuenchSA.
