Some peeps praised the company for signing and promoting unknown artists while others slammed it for exploiting them.

Thabo Kgasago commented:

"I still love Ambitiouz because it takes risks by signing unknown artists when other companies are reluctant to sign them. They later bite the hand that fed them. It is business not some charity."

Matrickx Marwanqana wrote:

"At least they can market and promote an artist."

Nomazizi Majama Mtuzula Majama said:

"At least those who will be signed by them already know the salary. Thanks to Dubai."

Karabo Karabo commented:

"Artists in SA are in trouble. No wonder why Black Coffee and Nasty C went abroad."

"I think artist should take Ambitiouz as their step up platform and not sign a long period contract. As soon as you're known, thank them, take a bow and never look back."

Taurus Cruz said:

"Unfortunately our upcoming artists don't know their worth when it comes to contract negotiation and on the other hand I salute Ambitiouz Ent for taking a risk signing them, unlike other so called labels."

Lunga Potyo added:

"Exploitation at its best. The sad part is that the owner is a young black man, he knows their struggle yet he's doing this to his brothers and sisters."
