Prolific hip hop star Riky Rick has a new musical home.

The Boss Zonke hit maker has officially joined Mabala Noise Entertainment as its new signee to the stable.

The unveiling of Ricardo Makhado as a protégé of the label was done this morning at Mabala Noise Entertainment offices in Fourways, north of Joburg.

Speaking about being signed by the label Riky Rick said, “I am very grateful that I am part of this family. This is one step to growth as I believe that I will grow in terms of my craft, as Mabala Noise Entertainment has visions for me to get to the top,” he said.

When Move! asked him if he would not be limiting and suffocating himself as an artist, as he was previously independent and successful in his own rights, Riky Rick said that he was joining a reputable record label.

“I am part of the fast growing label that has the interests of its artists at heart. We are going to work well together. I do my own thing and other artists also do their own thing. Our mission is to make sure that this brand grows and as the artists signed here, we should push the hustle together,” he said.

The record label owner and the ANCYL Treasurer, Reggie “Govner” Nkabinde said, “We want to help our artists to have an international appeal. We have many artists in the label who really work hard to make their careers great and with Riky Rick in the stable, we are going for bigger things. As South Africans, we need to take our music to the world stage, and if we are passionate and optimistic with our mission, surely we can get to the top.” – BONGANI MDAKANE
