Emtee recently took to social media to air his views about the University of Cape Town. He bluntly said that the institution is racist. After being questioned on his stance, the muso defended himself by saying that his opinions were based on facts.

The opinionated rapper said that his opinions were not made thumb-sucked but rather based on factual knowledge. He said being a rapper allowed him to read and specialise in language and speech.

"There’s no great artist on this planet that’s clueless about their history or heritage"

Social media users had mixed reactions to his post. Twitter user Nhlamulo_Mlabya said:

"My sister studied there and she never spoke of experiencing any racism"

Maluleke_rodger said:

"That university is runs by black woman bro, what's your story?"

GatyeniM said:

"I disagree, I studied there for 4 years, surely it cannot be the best compare to Stellenbosch. I have never experienced racism but cannot speak for everyone who once attended the institution"

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Emtee has learned the hard way not to go for the first offer than comes along if you're a struggling artist. The rapper hugely regretted his decision to sign with Ambitiouz Entertainment and now has some sage advice for artists who are looking to get signed. He said it's important to not exhibit signs of hunger, otherwise record labels will take advantage.
