After an unnamed source close to AKA’s crew whispered to the media about the One Time rapper receiving an offer from Mabala Noise to sign under them, speculations arouse from all spheres of the media world.
On setting the record straight, AKA’s business partner and Executive Director at his new company Beam Group, Prince Costinyo, confirmed that they only agreed on a partnership with the stable and denies AKA being signed to Mabala Noise.
“Yes we are in talks with Mabala Noise. AKA will unfortunately not be signed to the company. He will only be collaborating with Mabala Noise artists on certain projects,” he explained.
According to Castinyo, Mabala Noise’s vision is totally different from that of Beam Group’s vision and so they had to decline the offer. “Mabala Noise grooms artists in order to make them international brands, we have a completely different strategy, but that won’t stop us from doing collaborative work with them.’’
Mabala Noise Head of communications, Hloni Gumede also slammed down the rumours of AKA signing with their stable and said, “We did not approach AKA to sign under Mabala Noise. AKA did, however, send a verse for a song he is working on requesting to feature one of the Mabala Noise artists, who I cannot mention as yet,” Gumede confirmed.
Gumede also added that although they are open to future business proposals, they would not be signing AKA, ”We are all industry friends. Mabala does not have secrets and if we were signing AKA, we would let you know.’’
