When Emtee left Ambitiouz, he dropped some files on how he was unfairly treated. Now, the record label is involved in yet another royalties drama with Intaba Yase Dubai.

The musician recently went on a rant accusing the label of compensating him merely R3 700 per month. He has even threatened to leave the music industry over these allegations.

Emtee who has always been vocal about the alleged exploitation and abuse he suffered at the record label, has taken to his Twitter account to throw shade at the label.

In a Tweet he said he warned people about Ambitiouz and people thought he was high, "I told yall bout those Bozos. N*ggas said I was high. Okay I’m sober now and lives are still being destroyed," he wrote.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, the label rubbished claims that the Intaba Yase Dubai gets paid R3, 700 per month. Ambitiouz Entertainment record label founder Kgosi Mahumapelo expressed his shock at his claims.

“That was very creative of him and very deliberate. There was malicious intent.” he told the publication.

He went on to explain what the R3, 700 he received, was his food allowance and he gets more money, “The R3,700 is the food allowance he receives while receiving more money on top of that. It's just a portion of what he receives. That's a person who knew they were emotionally manipulating the public. He's not even counting the R12,000 monthly accommodation”  he said.

The drama started after Intaba Yase Dubai said he was not paid a cent for his feature on Big Zulu's Imali Eningi. Big Zulu released a statement saying his record label Inkabi Records paid Ambitiouz Entertainment to pay their artist his share.

He said they made a payment of R94, 527, 31 over three payments between November 5th and February 11th. But, the stable says the song should have made more money and the R94K was not enough to pay everyone as they had to split it amongst themselves.
"Based of the fact the Imali Eningi was a very big song which generated tens of millions of streams, AE believes that the song should have generated a significantly higher income than reported. We have therefore contested the royalty report. Requested supporting documents and hope to conduct an audit soon as provided for in the signed music agreement," they said in closing.
