The management team of both B3nchMarQ and A-Reece are aware of the letter/s which have been sent out by Ambitiouz Entertainment to promoters and radio stations alleging an “ongoing legal battle” and seeking to prevent third parties from booking them for shows or playing their music on radio.
The Artists wish to clarify any rumor or assertion of this nature by unequivocally stating that there is no legal process in place that would prohibit the artists from performing their music and having their music playlisted on radio. The artists can further confirm that they are the sole owners of copyright pertaining to their works and no agreement to the contrary exists with any party, including Ambitious Entertainment. Furthermore, there is no legislation that empowers Ambitiouz to make the nature of threats, claims and allegations which they continue to do.
B3nchMarQ and A-Reece are currently in studio working on new material and taking bookings in the usual course of their business.
ICYMI: Nadia Nakai First SA Female Rapper To Perform AT SXSW Fest In Texas
Nadia Nakai to make history as first female rapper to perform at SXSW fest in Texas
This year is shaping up nicely for most of the artists this year who are starting the year off on a strong foot. With her highly anticipated debut album on the way, Nadia Nakai seems to be carving her own way.
She recently announced that she will be performing at the distinguished international music festival, South By South West (SXSW), in March and she will be the first female from South Africa to do so.
Nadia Nakai is one of the few artists who have been closing major deals last year and began trailblazing her own path outside of music. This includes the Castle Lite advertisement as well as her Bragga fashion line with Sportscene. So it is natural for her 2019 to begin on such a great page.
Bragga went onto her social media to announce that she was chosen to be part of the festival.
“Im SOOO excited!!! I’ve been selected as 1 of the South African artist to showcase at @sxsw in Austin Texas in the United States !!!! I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!”
Over the past year or so Bragga took some time out from dropping music and instead has been doing shows and perfecting her set so we are confident that she will absolutely kill the SXSW set. We also hope that Cassper Nyovest and Tshego also makes an appearance in the show to officially put Family Tree on a global scale.
Earlier last year, she took The Dome by storm when she was announced as one of the opening acts at the Castle Lite Unlocks concert. She shared the stage with Chance The Rapper, Frank Casino and Shane Eagle among many others.
Other artists who have performed and completely impressed at the SXSW festival include Kid X, Kwesta and AKA.
