Johannesburg – Fans had something to celebrate over the weekend when it was revealed that rapper and TV star Boitumelo “Boity” Thulo had signed a record deal with Def Jam Africa.
This is according to Billboard magazine, which revealed that Thulo was signed to the label’s African division.
Boity, who hasn’t released any new music since her second single Bakae last year, said on her reality show, Boity: Own Her Throne, that the reason for the long hiatus from music was the result of a dispute with her previous record label. On the TV show, she expressed her frustrations and how unhappy she was with the terms of her contract, which allegedly restricted her from releasing new music.
“People are assuming I am just laidback and not wanting to release new music. I have so much music. I have been ready for the past six months.
“Things are taking long, but, you know, everything will be fine eventually and you will get all the music that is ready. It is awesome. I think you guys are going to love it.”
