On a recent interview with DRUM, the Ghetto Hero rapper revealed that the boss of now former label Kgosi Mahumapelo ordered him to pay an amount of R700 000 which he supposedly owes to the stable when crahsed his car.
“Instead of the CEO [of Ambitiouz Entertainment] checking if I’m okay, he told me I needed to pay like R700 000, that’s crazy.”
When he spoke of the reason he left he said he wasn’t getting paid and managed too well.
“In the last month I wasn’t getting a cent, even if you perform 100 shows a month you still get the same amount of money at the end of every month.” said Emtee.
