Emtee has taken to social media to tell his fans to stop supporting his albums Avery and Manando. The star's album Manando is currently on the list of top 15 best hip-hop albums on Apple Music. He made the blazing album four years ago when he was still signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment.
The Roll Up hitmaker shared that he is not getting any money even though the album is still doing well in terms of sales and streaming on Apple Music. He took to Twitter to discourage his fans from streaming or buying the album. The star wrote:
"An album I released 4 years ago that I’m not getting the money for on this list? I must be the greatest."
He also told a fan, who applauded him for producing some of his best work on the two albums, to forget about them because he is not getting the bag for both of them.
"Trust me. Forget about it cos you know the sales and stream money is not coming to me."
The star has even decided to take Ambitiouz Entertainment to court. Emtee is demanding that his former stable release his royalties dating back from his first album, Avery, which he released in 2015.
"You still the greatest you can still give us an album that we can play for decades 'Ghetto hero' is your definition."
"Indeed you are the greatest."
