Recording company Mabala Noise reportedly closed its doors. The recent reports come just after an exodus of some of its stars including co-founder DJ Bongz, Gigi Lamayne and Riky Rick who all left the company in the past year. Also the boss Reggie Nkabinde has left the showbiz to focus on politics according to a report by Sowetan.
It was just a month ago when the labels founder and ANC youth league leader Reggie Nkabinde said he would be returning to full-time politics where he hopes to succeed ANC Youth League president Collen Maine. Yesterday (14 Feb 2018) fans on social media confirmed that the company which was launched in 2016, has called its quits after its biggest remaining signing Nasty C jumped ship to join Universal Music Group.
Some Hip hop artist and one of the remaining signees Du Boiz said he still regards himself as an employee and artist of the label. “As far as I know, I am still recording music in studio under Mabala Noise. “I’ve noted speculation from the public about its shutting down but I still perform and get paid so I cannot comment on executive decisions made by my bosses,” the Celebration hit maker said. The Durban-born rapper who has won awards with the company said: “I am just an employee, if they shut down they will let us know.”
