Emtee was reportedly set to perform alongside Ami Faku at the recently held South African Film and Television Awards but disappeared at the eleventh hour.
The two musicians were expected to perform their smash hit titled Lala Ngoxolo during the "in memoriam" segment of the ceremony. But that never happened.
Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela said the two stars had rehearsed for their performance a few days leading up to the event. He said just a few minutes before they went on stage on the day of the actual event, the rapper disappeared. Ami had to improvise and perform by herself.
The Roll Up hitmaker allegedly left with the clothes he was given by the costume, make up and styling department. Tweeps shared mixed thoughts on Emtee's disappearing act.
"I give up on Emtee."
"Emtee is troubled."
"I didn't even notice that ebengekho yazi. Ami owned esa stage that day."
"@emteerecords can you account for this bhuti? Heard your interview with MacG and we really rooting for you... Was there a reasonable explanation?"
"Thought he was trying to revive his career. Do this thing as an independent artist and get back on track to being a respectable artist, wenzan manje (what's he doing now)??"
In other music news, Briefly News reported that Emtee issued a stern warning to up-and-coming rapper Big Xhosa. The Roll Up hitmaker was responding to the young rapper's recent diss track aimed at Mzansi rappers besides AKA and Big Zulu. Emtee took to Instagram Live recently and insinuated that Big Xhosa was mentally disturbed after he dropped the diss track.
Big Xhosa took to Twitter on Sunday, 9 May to share his thoughts on Emtee's reaction to the diss track. Big Xhosa tried to be nice to Emtee, saying that the Hustla's music got him through "some worst times".
Emtee, who is known for not mincing his words, was not having it. According to ZAlebs, he first swore at the aspiring rapper and then told him to respect Mzansi hip-hop. Big Xhosa then said it was "just a game" which also rubbed Emtee the wrong way.
