We didn’t see this one coming. Today, in a series of tweets, the rapper A-Reece announced that he was leaving the label he released his debut album Paradise under. He tweeted this morning, “To whom this may concern the most: The fans. I would like to say that I’m no longer a part of #AmbitiouzEnt as of now moving forward.”

The Pretoria rapper signed with Ambitiouz Ent in early 2016, and released singles, such as “Couldn’t”, “Mngani”, “Zimbali”, “Sebenza”, all which were in his album Paradise, which won him Best Lyricist at the South African Hip Hop Awards last year.

He also released an EP prior to Paradise called Cutaways (it was on point, by the way). The rapper also retweet a tweet that read,  “Mash Beatz, La Flame, B3nchMarQ  & Reece are no longer part of Ambitiouz.” confirming he wasn’t the only artist who is leaving the label.

Yoh listen, note that I am no longer an @ambitiouz_entertainment artist. It’s been good but all good things come to an end. Fifi Nation, still yours the whole time. . . I’ve decided to push Fifi Cooper under fificooper’s Record Label MòCooper Records. I’ve learned I’m ready and it’s TIME!!!! #SingleDroppingSoon #MòCooperRecords #NewYearNewMoves Look at God🙏
