Riky Rick took to social media to call on record labels who are supporting the #BlackOutTuesday movement to put their money where their mouth was. He said the labels should free artists who are trapped in "exploitative slave" contracts.

The rapper appealed to the companies to keep the same energy in freeing young black artists that they have entrapped in bad contracts.

Many Mzansi artists have been open about how exploitative the industry can be. It seems Riky Rick just wants justice to be served on all fronts and not just for trending hashtags.

Social media users had mixed reactions to his post. Twitter user Master227 said:

"Well artist always like to play victims. They beg for record labels to sign them, then as soon as they blow up and get famous they start acting up demanding that and that..."

lxcid_zw said:

"As much as we can sympathize with the artists the truth is they also have to read the contracts thoroughly before they commit to something that they might regret in future"

SbiyaLucky said:

"At the end of the day no one is forced to sign anything"
