The label's Twitter page did an impromptu fan Q and A, where tweeps were able to ask anything.

One tweep said, "I want to start (a) a record label. What can you advise me? What are the most challenging aspects regarding running a record label?"
Ambitiouz responded, "Be prepared for 'Please sign me, I'm desperate' to (change to) 'Vele, vele it was only me and my fans that got me here' - after you've spent fortunes in developing an unknown artist and making them a star."
Another tweep countered with, "(For) the record label to (become) well-known, (it) was Emtee's talent and Fifi - they pushed so hard. You guys just brought funds."

That's when Ambitiouz implied that it was their funds that made the likes of Emtee and Fifi popular.

Ambitiouz said they're open to working with Emtee again, but "only if it makes business sense."

Yesterday, reported that Busiswa had given Ambitiouz a tongue-lashing for acting unprofessional on social media in its ongoing battle with former artist, Emtee.

The label is also dealing with Sjava allegedly seeking to cut ties immediately.

Other talents to have walked away from Ambitiouz include Priddy Ugly, Saudi, Amanda Black, Fifi Cooper and A-Reece.
