Soweto-born, South African rapper, Emtee on Elite Nites with Kgomotso Meso talking about his musical journey and its pitfalls. He further chats about becoming sober and focusing on making his life better for his two sons, Avery and Logan.
Emtee also talks about his new album as well as record label, his first project since he left Ambitious Entertainment.
Emtee spoke about the numerous stories written about him that weren’t true.
“I can never knock down journalists who get the story twisted, they have a job to do and have people to feed. They probably get their stories from third or forth parties. Growing up and seeing our idols being crucified like that, I always saw it coming. Being this achieved artist, there’s some sort of tragedy that it comes with.”
His sobriety has been a concern to a lot of his fans, in the interview he spoke about being grounded and continuing to look after himself while spreading a positive message to his fans.
“I always wanted to lead the right way, the positive way. The message is not clear if you say chase your dreams in the music, respect your parents and do the right thing, yet there’s parts of you that are not going the right thing. I gave myself a wake up call and told myself that I need to do the right thing.”
