Blaq Diamond’s Siphelele Dunywa reveals the group’s next move after leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment.

The duo left the label in 2021 and they won a legal battle against the record label this year.

Now, they are focused on establishing and growing their record label.

Speaking to TshishaLIVE, Siphelele said,  “It feels great to be independent. I’m in love with the challenges because I’m learning a lot, how to run my schedule on a daily basis, and how to separate music from business. I’m thankful that we met Ambitiouz [Entertainment], now we are lucky to be independent and move forward.”

He spoke about the artists they have signed to the label, and how it is his desire to see them go independent some day.

“We have different artists from high school, different cities … I just can’t wait for people to hear the new talent. We need to teach one another, this is generational, you take one person and build them — and once they are successful, they will build another artist.

“More than anything, I want to see the people that we are signing right now start their own record labels one day and sign themselves because as an artist you need freedom, to do whatever you want.”
