Johannesburg – Award-winning musician Sjava’s days at Ambitiouz Entertainment could be numbered.
According to a close friend and industry insider, the singer has been “extremely unhappy” at the stable and is currently looking for ways to cut ties with the label.
Sjava is allegedly considering joining fellow musicians Fifi Cooper, Amanda Black, Emtee, and A-Reece who left the stable under nasty circumstances.
Label boss Kgosi Mahumapelo, however, told media that the recording, publishing and marketing deals that Sjava signed with the stable stood and will continue to be active for a few years to come.
“An artist or label cannot opt to renew a contract that is still active and will be for a few years to come.
“All three contracts are active and Ambitiouz have not requested the artist to renew any,” said Mahumapelo.
However, it is believed that the reason Sjava is unhappy at Ambitiouz is over not receiving a cent from his feature on the Black Panther soundtrack in 2018.
“Ambitious have not received any form of payment from the Black Panther project to date and efforts have been made to claim revenues from the project, including hiring international royalty specialists to assist in this regard,” Mahumapelo said.
