Ma­bala Noise calls it quits

RECORD com­pany Ma­bala Noise is re­ported to have closed its doors.

The lat­est 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.

Last month its 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 fans on so­cial me­dia con­firmed that the com­pany, launched in 2016, has called its quits after its big­gest sign­ing Nasty C jumped ship to join Uni­ver­sal Mu­sic Group.

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.”
