Emtee’s parents, Phathiswa and Lumkile Ndevu, have opened up about a fight they had with their son, Mthembeni Ndevu's (who is better known as Emtee) in-laws, which did not end too well.
According to media reports, Emtee’s parents accused Emtee’s baby momma, Nicole Chinsamy, of being a gold-digger. Sunday World reported that the parents of the young couple then fought over the accusations.
Emtee’s parents spoke to the publication, revealing everything that had happened, from the time the feud began to how Nicole allegedly controls Emtee.
“We are saying this because in March, Emtee and Nicole organised a party for the second-born child. We went there to celebrate with them, but the party nearly degenerated into a physical fight between my wife and Nicole’s mother,” said Emtee’s father.
“As we were celebrating the party, Nicole’s mother accused my wife of spreading rumours that she [Nicole’s mother] was eating Emtee’s money. There was a big argument and they almost beat each other up. Nicole’s mother told us that we must never set foot in her house, she doesn’t want to see us any more,” added Emtee’s father.
He added that the way Emtee is carrying on - by abandoning his culture and by being controlled by Nicole - will be end of his music career.
“He hardly visits home. He has never brought the kids home for rituals. This woman and her mother have taken total control of our son. We plead with Emtee to get out of that home before it is too late. This woman only loves him for his money,” said Mr Ndevu.
