Emtee has spoken up about the rumours that are circulating around a car crash he had earlier this year. The rapper has been accused of fleeing the scene of the accident, but he says his friends took him to hospital.
Emtee was blamed for leaving the scene of an accident earlier in 2019 but the rapper has now addressed the claim, saying that's not the case.
Drum magazine reported that Emtee said his friends had told him to leave the car because he was blacking out and they wanted to get him to a doctor.
" I never fled the scene. I needed to see a doctor."
TimesLIVE reports that Emtee was booked off from work for two weeks after the accident and was surprised that people thought he actually ran away.
"I was on my way home from a studio session with two friends at around 4am that morning. I don't know how it happened. Maybe I was tired, but I crashed."
Briefly.co.za gathers that a report by Sunday World indicates that this wasn't the only accident Emtee was involved in.
Apparently, a leaked statement to the publication (by one of the ex-junior PR officials at Emtee's former record label) said the rapper was driving with two occupants in a Mercedes-Benz GLE 4x4 when he crashed it into a street pole in January of this year.
The muso hasn't reported the accidents to the police though.
Emtee has, however, allegedly refused to report the accidents to the police for reasons his record label couldn't disclose at that time.
