The 26-year-old rapper, real name Mthembeni Ndevu, shared with his Twitter followers that the record label didn’t organise a tour for his 2018 album titled DIY 2, because the label didn’t make it happen.
“Following a long and in-depth reflection on my career as an artist where I am now and where I see myself in the next few years, I have made a decision that the time has come for me to now part ways with Ambitiouz Entertainment,” read part of the statement he wrote on Twitter.
