Taking to social media, rapper Emtee has set the record straight on rumours that he abused drugs.
Last year, Briefly.co.za reported Emtee collapsed on stage during a performance and fans noted he looked a bit 'dazed'.
Soon, rumours of drug abuse started circulating, but, Emtee maintained it was only exhaustion that led to the incident.
However, since then, the rapper just can't seem to shake those pesky drug abuse claims. So, he took to social media to open up about the rumours.
According to a Twitter post he shared on Monday, Emtee admitted he sold drugs but he never used the substances himself.
The rapper then went on to slam those who gave him a hard time for dealing.
"How u get so cold towards a kid who just wants to change his life the same way you did? Ion even care about stuff. I’m jus makin music about jets and my struggle," he wrote on Twitter.
Emtee added although he did not use hard drugs as suggested by rumours, he has taken cannabis.
In another post, the rapper reiterated that he has never used any drugs.
Standing up for his friend, Sjava told Emtee to just forgive his haters because they make assumptions based on 'fake content.'
"Don’t forget that before we got here people were fed FAKE content in the game for a long time namanje there is still a whole lot of FUGAZYNESS going on so forgive them when they say unamanga they dont know whats real or not," he said.
