Johannesburg – In 2014 the South African rapper Ricky Rick made an announcement that he is leaving Motif Records, a record label that is founded by muso Tumi Molekane. Ricky Rick told the media and his fans that the reason he is parting ways with Motif Records was because he wanted to explore “new avenues in his career”. But this wekend he decided to use his Twitter account to state the real reason he left the label.
His first tweet read: “I got respect for Tumi BUT honestly he needs to stop tryna claim niggaz success… I paid a lot money to get out of the motif contract. He should have left it there instead of tryna bring it up in every track he puts out… let it go (sic)”.
His second tweet read: “Let me tell you what happened. I wanted to release Boss Zonke and tumi said the track is wack and he didnt want to be part of it. I said shap. Paid him coins to get off the label. Put out Boss Zonke. Became a classic. Family values went platinum. The rest is history (sic).”
