- Rapper Emtee collapses on stage during a performance in Limpopo
- Fans suspect drug abuse and alcoholism

Fans were in shock and expressed their fears after South African rapper Emtee collapsed during his performance at a music concert in Lephalale, Limpopo, over the weekend. Some expressed concerns about the artist’s lifestyle, suspecting that he is on drugs.
Twitter was abuzz on Monday morning after a video of Emtee’s performance was posted online. In the video, the entertainer is seen swaying in a daze and eventually collapsing on stage. Reactions of shock and gasps were heard coming from the crowd. The rapper immediately got back on his feet, however, it was obvious that he was in no condition to continue with his performance.
Tweeps roasted him, stating that he doesn’t take his fans or career serious. Another said that they would have requested for their money back had they attended the show while another fan put the blame on his management for allowing him to go on stage in the state he was in.
According to The South African, Emtee appeared to be in a good state of health when he jumped on stage, but then became very rigid and limited in his movement halfway through his performance. Briefly.co.za learned that he was eventually escorted off stage by security and they had to assist him as he walked because he couldn’t balance by himself.
The Roll-Up hit-maker later responded, saying “I fell on stage. I’m not on drugs. I don’t have health issues either. I got back up and carried on performing.” The tweet was later deleted.
Celebrities including Lerato Kganyago, Cassper Nyovest and Sizwe Dhlomo also expressed their concern about the matter:
