Former Ambitiouz Entertainment signee Intaba Yase Dubai, is undoubtedly one of South Africa’s most admired musicians in the country. He rose to fame after being featured on Big Zulu’s hit song Imali Eningi, and he has been going through the most lately.
Taking to his Facebook account, he slammed fake people who claim to love him. He said when he dies people should not post him, because they don’t care about him, but they are just pretending.
“When I die please do not post me on social media pretending as if you loved me but you failed to appreciate me when I was alive. Please do not want to show off with me. I know you don’t care about me and you can live without me, so don’t pretend as if you do. You guys pretend a lot,” he wrote.
Fans reacted angrily to his post, accusing him of emotionally blackmailing them. Bheki Proff Dlamini wrote: “What you posted is stupid. It would have been better if you had said some people. These people were fighting for you at the company that was benefiting from the fruits of your labour but today you are saying we are pretending,”
Intaba Yase Dubai left tongues wagging last month after he took to social media to claim that he did not receive R1 from Big Zulu Imali Eningi featuring him and the late Riky Rick.
“Nothing in this world beats the pain of watching another man gain a lot of money from your hard work, while you are broke. I’m sorry but I hate features with all of my heart. Coz you have to act like we are all ok while only an individual is…” he claimed. “Mali Eningi has reached over 12 Million streams. But I’m broke. Never got even R1.”
Big Zulu then released a statement to set the record straight. According to him, they paid Ambitiouz Entertainment to compensate him for his share. Furthermore, he said that Nkabi Records paid the disgraced stable R94, 527, 31 over three payments between November 5th and February 11th. However, the label argued that the amount was not enough, since they would have to split the amount into 3 amounts to pay the artist, SAMRO, and get their share.
Afterwards, Intaba Yase Dubai issued a statement saying he was done with music but after careful consideration he decided he will not leave music but he would rather leave Ambitiouz. He shook fans when he announced his departure from the stable.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my supporters for the support, my family, close friends, The taxi owners, taxi drivers, Promoters, music industry colleagues and the Media Houses.”
“Would also like to announce that me and Ambitiouz Entertainment have parted ways. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity and platform they gave me when no one did. Like I said before I am not fighting anyone or Ambitiouz, I don’t like uncertainty. I Almost gave up on music because I was not paid what I deserve and what I worked hard for,” he wrote.
He claimed that the stable was paying him R3700 a month but the Ambitiouz denied the claims. “Last year I was depressed and frustrated because I was gigging almost every weekend, but come month end I get paid R3,700? After being in-depth reflection on my career, I won’t quit music, I love it and I am passionate about it, most importantly that’s the only source I have to feed my family,” he claimed.
