Emtee has taken to social media to react to yet another criticism of his new personalised sneakers. The star debuted another design on Thursday and some tweeps decided to throw major shade at the new design.
The star, who is known for not mincing his words, has once again responded to his naysayers on the micro-blogging app. The Roll Up hitmaker first acted all cool about the criticism. He responded to one troll:
"I love the criticism."
Emtee then realised that acting cool did not help him as more tweeps threw shade at his shoe design. He decided to clap back.
The star told one troll who suggested that most celebs waste their money on unnecessary clothing lines where to get off.
"Manje s’thin thina? Sizwe ngawe maybe? (What should we then? Listen to you maybe?)"
This was not the first time that the star's sneakers received criticism on social media. The rapper's personalised sneakers also came under fire in July.
Still on Emtee, Briefly.co.za reported that Emtee has took to social media to debut another design of his own shoes. The star shared a snap of the sneakers with his name on them.
The rapper is making business moves like his peers in the music industry. Other Mzansi rappers such as AKA and K.O also push their own merchandise on the side instead of sticking to making music only. Get that bag, hustla.
The Roll Up hitmaker's tweet about his new shoes garnered mixed reactions from Mzansi social media users. Some tweeps decided to drag the star for his sneakers design while his fans fell in love with the new design as soon as they laid eyes on them. On tweep commented:
"Now this is great work Emtee. The kicks are dope. Where can we get them?"
