Speaking to Sowetanlive.co.za, he said:

It never got to me whatsoever because I have always understood that money comes and goes. You can have R100000 today and next week R50000 and then the following week nothing. That is what I have learnt about money.

Emtee added that he strives to save money at every opportunity and build his family. Additionally, he always seeks to make investments to further secure his future.
