Listen we’ve BEEN Rouge fans, but it seems like the music industry has caught up with us by signing her to Sony Music.
The SAMA winning rapper announced on her Twitter page yesterday saying:
ANNOUNCEMENT ROUGE IS OFFICIALLY SIGNED TO SONY MUSIC. I’ve been independent for the longest time and now officially with a major! Can’t wait to see where this journey takes me with my new family

She released her debut album ‘The New Era Sessions’ independently in 2017 and debuted at number 2 on the South African iTunes chart. She has previously won a SAMA in 2018 for Best Music Video of the Year, a SAFTA for Best Micro-Budget Film, and Best Female Artist at the South African Hip Hop Awards in 2017.

So Rouge has been a big deal for a while but it’s comforting to know that she signed to a record label once she was comfortable to do so, and as she says, she has the best music lawyer in the business, her sister:
Some of my supporters are lowkey worried about me signing. Promise I got the best music lawyer in the game and I signed under my terms. This took mooooooooonths of backs and forth till I was happy. We good, trust. Ready for music now???
