Johannesburg – It was in 2014 that rapper Riky Rick announced that he would be parting ways with Motif Records, a label founded by muso Tumi Molekane. Back then Riky said the move was made so that he could explore new avenues in his career. In a tweet on Wednesday the rapper went into a little more detail about why he left Tumi’s label. 

“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),” the first tweet read. 

In another post Riky wrote: “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).”
