After recently announcing her split from Ambitiouz Entertainment, Amanda Black is now filing a six figure lawsuit against the record label.
According to the Sunday Sun, the singer has filed a R1 million lawsuit against the label and former boss, Kgosi Mahumapelo.
In the court application, it’s revealed that she is accusing Ambitiouz of breach of an exclusive management. The report also reveals that Amanda has not received any money for her gigs between December 2017 and April 2018, and further accuses the label of not giving her the full share from R200 000 she received with an award at Metro FM Awards last year.
The defendant in March provided the plaintiff with a bookings report reflecting bookings of previous months, which includes a split of the plaintiff’s performance fees to cater for permissible deductions, management commision and the amount due to the plaintiff.
According to the booking report, it’s established that money due to her amounts to R964 526.32.
Amanda took to social media announcing her exit, basically saying that her and the label could not agree on certain terms which prompted her to seek a new team to help her grow her brand.
“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 realizing 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” said Amanda in a social media post.
