After reports that Mzansi rapper, Emtee’s record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment, had repossessed all of his cars and house hit the streets, the label has come forward to clarify its actions.
At first the label’s boss, Kgosi, denied the claims of repossession in an article published in the Sunday Sun last week, saying it was untrue.
But in a series of tweets posted earlier today, Ambitiouz Entertainment said they will release an official statement detailing the issue of the rapper’s situation.
They wrote: "We will be releasing an official statement in 30 min after clearing it with legal cousin."
Ambitiouz Entertainment also tweeted that the company is being forced to divulge information about the affairs of the artists, which they were not happy about.
“It is unfortunate that the company finds itself in a position where it is forced to divulge information about the affairs of the artists. We only choose this route as the last resort in protecting other artists within the label and the reputation of it’s employees.”
But tweeps were not impressed and are standing by #FreeEmtee. Here are some of their views on Twitter:
Ambitiouz Entertainment had still not released a statement at the time of publication.
Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that SA Hip Hop Mag reports that local rapper, Emtee, had been done in by his record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment.
According to the report, the label has repossessed the house the rapper has been renting in Midrand as well as all his cars. It is assumed the label company owns the Johannesburg home.
The situation between Emtee and Ambitiouz Entertainment has taken a turn for the worst, as reported by Sunday Sun.
Emtee's manager, Lebo Manswanganyi, confirmed the claims, saying his Mercedes Benz had been taken. Briefly.co.za gathered that Emtee now has to make use of Uber and has moved back to Orange Grove.
This comes after Emtee spoke out on social media, using #FreeEmtee as a cry for help of sorts.
