Cape Town - Local rapper Riky Rick tweeted on Monday that he has decided to leave Mabala Noise.

The 29-year-old wrote: “After long prayer and conversation with God, I am no longer part of @Mabala_Noise Blessings to everyone there. Thank you for the love.”

The Juice reached out to Mabala Noise's chairperson Reggie Nkabinde and PR head, Hloni 'Mhlo' Gumede for comment. 

Hloni said the following, "Riky is still a part of Mabala Noise. We cannot control what Riky says on social media but he has signed a contract that is valid for the next 3 years."

The Juice reached out to Riky's booking agent who said they were unaware of the rapper's tweet.

The Juice awaits further comment from the rapper.

This follows the news last week that Riky was not included in the line-up for Mabala Noise's concert to celebrate their wins at The Metro FM Awards.

Riky famously made a controversial speech at the event in which he referred to his record label.
