South African rapper, Emtee has his fans on edge after seemingly calling out for help with the hashtag #FreeEmtee. He might not be in jail, but he feels imprisoned by his record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment.
This isn’t the first time the DIY 2 rapper has suggested that all is not right behind the scenes at his label and on Monday he began the week by issuing a few tweets that have some of his most loyal fans concerned.
He began by writing “I know my supporters want me to prosper” and suffixed the tweet with #FreeEmtee before sharing the hashtag once more in a separate tweet.
I know my supporters want me prosper #FreeEmtee

Although he didn’t mention his label, it was clear to anybody who has followed his career that this was a subtle hint in the direction of Ambitiouz Entertainment. If anyone was still in doubt, the poll he posted cleared everything up:

People quickly caught on to what he was talking about and before long, users were commenting on the #FreeEmtee hashtag with their opinions on what the rapper should do. Many sympathised with the predicament that he found himself in, while others suggested that A-Reece had warned us all that things would get to this point.

If Emtee leaves Ambitiouz, he’ll lose everything. House, cars and they’ll take down all videos & pages like did with A-Reece.#FreeEmtee

Some of the fans have a point; leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment may make Emtee’s life a little more difficult but the likes of A-Reece and Gigi Lamayne have proven that there is life after Ambitiouz with the right team behind you.
