Rapper Riky Rick has announced his resignation from record label Mabala Noise, claiming that the label had threatened the future of him and his family.

In a lengthy statement posted to his Twitter account on Monday morning, the Sidlukotini hitmaker said that the decision came after a lengthy period of reflection.

He went on to claim that the label had "taken back" what they thought made him happy. The rapper also alleged that the label threatened his and his family's future.

Riky's resignation from Mabala Noise comes just two weeks after he took to the Metro FM Music Awards stage to lambaste the local music industry, and hinted at record labels buying awards.
It was the first sign of tension between Riky and Mabala Noise.
