Ndumiso Mdletshe and Sphelele Dunywa of Blaq Diamond revealed they are independent artists since leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment.
In a recent episode of Podcast and Chill, the Summer Yomuthi hitmakers said they parted ways with the record label in December 2021 to grow a bigger market.
“It was between sticking with the label or choosing growth. We wanted growth more than anything because we wanted to tap into the African market. There was a clear disconnect between our vision and theirs. It no longer aligned. It was nice working with them. We just want to go shoot to the other side,” Sphelele said.
The Sama-winning music duo said they signed to the label within 48-hours after award-winning singer Sjava played the song for Ambitiouz Entertainment around the same time A-Reece and other artists were leaving the label.
Blaq Diamond said they are on good terms with the label and would be open to working with them.
“We always made sure we had lawyers around. Even with us leaving Ambitiouz, we had to get lawyers to clear everything up,” they said.
