Fans of the ‘Kuze Kuse’ rapper’s fans showed their support for her current legal troubles with the EFF even offering to help her fight back.
We have seen the injustice caused on Fifi Cooper by Ambitious Entertainment which is politically associated with the corrupt North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo. We have contacted Fifi with the willingness to help her fight back against the corrupt & exploitative record company!

A label that goes through so much trouble to end a former artist’s career. Let this be a lesson to all artists signed under Ambitious Entertainment right now…Strength and Wisdom to Fifi Cooper I hope she bounces back from this.
