Johannesburg - To the outside world it may seem that Soulistic Music is a sinking ship, but the label's former artist Culoe De Song says Black Coffee is not to blame.

Black Coffee's record label has been rocked by constant rumours of artists fleeing the label, claiming that the infamous DJ has not done enough to promote them or their careers.

The rumours gathered steam last year when reports of Culoe De Song leaving the label was followed a few months later with reports that DJ Shimza was set to follow suit (more on that here).

Weekend reports once again painted Black Coffee in a negative light with claims that his artist Da Capo was also jumping ship, claiming his career has stagnated after joining Soulistic.

Although Da Capo has been mum on the rumours, Black Coffee has found an advocate in Culoe De Song, who took to Twitter this week to defend his former boss, while also sharing some insights into his own departure from the label.
