MABALA Noise was never gone!
These were the words of its CEO, Flabba Rimosco, after the record company was thought to be dead after most of their artists left in 2017 and 2018. But the controversial record label is now rebranding and coming back to the game.
Speaking to Daily Sun, Flabba said: “Mabala Noise didn’t die. We just went through a rough patch. We took on too much and that’s why we ended up falling.
“We signed a lot of big artists in a short space of time and it was a lot to take in. We’ve experienced some highs and lows.
“Our experiences have taught us better. We’re back in the game.”
He said they were also rebranding their logo. “We’ve removed the puppy from the logo and replaced it with a leopard. This is because a leopard has a stronger character and that’s the energy we’re coming with. We’re no longer puppies.”
After releasing most of their artists, rapper Zakwe remained and the label recently added two new artists, Mnqobi Yazo and Sonke.
“We’re known as a hip hop house and we wanted to show that we’re capable of signing any artist from any genre.
“If you’ve got enough talent, be it gospel or kwaito, we’ll sign you,” said Flabba.
