Amanda Black on Why she is Embarking on a New Journey after Leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment


BET International nominee and once winner of Idols SA Amanda Black ran into troubled waters with her former record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment around mid-June. Amanda explained in an interview with Metro FM’s DJ Fresh why she left the record label due to an irreconcilable friction . She explained also how the split up has caused her some hard times.

“I go home. It is hard to think in the city. It is very hard to have clear thoughts and make the right decisions. It gets very confusing. When it goes really really tough and I don’t know what to do, I go home.”

She however sees a silver lining in the clouds that have gathered in the wake of the split up. “This journey that I am on, I am meant to be on. All the hardships that I am going through right now I understand that they are meant for me. I am supposed to go through them.”

Ambitiouz Entertainment released a statement in June claiming the split up was due to a disagreement by both parties on certain contractual terms. The statement also included Amanda’s gratitude to the company and her expectations for her next record label.

“I am very grateful for Ambitiouz Entertainment and how far we have come. I am embarking on a new journey and I needed a team that would work with me in realising the plans and dreams I have for my career going forward. The new management looks after my bookings, brand and publicity as well as assisting me reach wider audiences in Africa and beyond,”
