They wrote: “It’s An Incredible Honour To Welcome Royal AM Entertainment's #AndileMpisane To Def Jam Recordings Africa!”.

The “Umcimbi“ hitmaker was positivity thrust more into the limelight when he appeared on his mother’s reality TV show, Kwa Mam' Mkhize, which aired on Mzansi Magic in January 2020.

From a young age, Mpisane has worn many hats, from being a midfielder in Royal Eagles FC to becoming the CEO of the football club, Royal AM, but music was always his first passion.

On the reality show, we saw Mpisane ask his mom and biggest cheerleader, Shauwn Mkhize, for R1 million to make a music video.

While Mpisane’s music dreams have become a reality, which he is extremely proud of, tweeps aren’t sure if he’s worked hard enough for it.

Taking to the comments on the initial Twitter post, @Mthetheleli_SA snarkily posted: “Lol Multitalented this One..heard that Man United is also having an eye on him✌🏽”.
