Following claims made against Emtee being intoxicated during his performance in Polokwane this past weekend after a fans Instagram Live video captured him falling went viral, the rapper has dismissed the accusations.
Speaking to ZAlebs, Emtee said: “I just fell, I don’t really know what made me fall, I just fell, and people around me came worried thinking that maybe something is wrong like no, I just fell and the show went on…”
We might have seen the father of two come under fire on various occasions for his viral online streams, however, Emtee is adamant that he was not intoxicated.
“I was probably tired or something but I wasn’t intoxicated with anything, it's not a case of me being high or not, and if someone says I was high, drunk or whatever, how do they know that when they were not there?"
Cassper Nyovest and Lerato Kganyago were amongst the celebrities that flooded social media weighing in on the video and pleading with the rapper to seek help, but Emtee says that he is not phased by their opinions.
“These celebrities love me, the thing is they don’t know me, they wish they can chill with me, and I’m not about chilling with no one...I don’t have celebrity friends, my only celebrity friends are Sjava and Saudi...all those celebrities are just talking nje, they're just riding this wave because all these celebrities know all the drugs, they know what’s going on, I don’t take no drugs, my pap would whoop my ass…”
Emtee went on to express the frustrations that the misconstrued video had caused him: "Celebrities are just doing what they usually do, acting all goodie-two-shoes for nothing, for followers I guess. I’m bigger than a lot of celebrities too so that makes them mad as well...I can’t even move an inch now, everything I do is being watched with a hawk's eye…”
