This week on MTV Base' Behind The Story with Pearl Thusi, we got to see Emtee reveal a lot about his hardships whilst still trying to break into the music industry.

This week the rapper received some rather unwanted attention after he collapsed on stage during a performance over the weekend. Whilst a lot of people voiced their concerns about his well-being, Emtee cleared the air and mentioned that he just fell and that he was not intoxicated.

On Tuesday, he then appeared on the MTV Base show to address a number of things as well.

The rapper has received a lot of shade from the public, the most noticeable shade was when the public questioned his girlfriend's age after he and his family appeared in an exclusive Drum interview. In the interview, it was revealed that Emtee's girlfriend - Nicole is 22-years-old.

Nicole and Emtee were unfortunately trolled for that and Emtee on #BehindTheStory was asked how he and Nicole felt about the hate they received from that specific interview to which he replied: "‘It didn’t affect my income, it didn’t affect anything I got going on, it was just words, umoya nje."


Emtee then spoke about his hardships whilst still trying to make it as a rapper, he revealed that there were times he'd have to sleep with an empty stomach as he had no food.

Another interesting part of the interview was when he mentioned that he recently asked his father to quit his job as he can now afford to take care of him.

Just a few months ago Emtee and his brother bought their father a brand new car as well.

Emtee who is one of the first artists to be signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment has seen a lot of his label mates come and go, the most recent artists to leave the label are the likes of Amanda Black and Priddy Ugly

But the real exodus happened when the likes of A-Reece, Fifi Cooper and rap duo - BenchMarq left.

The departure of these artists took a toll on Emtee but in the interview, Emtee made it clear that when the time is right and if God allows he will make music with the likes of A-Reece and Fifi Cooper.
