There are certain individuals who have commanding voices to the point where it would be impossible to not sit up and pay attention to what they have to say.
One of those individuals is Siyabonga "Scoop Makhathini" Ngwekazi. This South African hip-hop authority has shared his views on the general environment that hip-hop artist, Emtee has engulfed himself in. When tweeps warned him that Emtee might come for him, he simply stated that he is not shaken by the noise that might follow after his tweets about the Manando hitmaker.
I LOVE EMTEE.KODWA I DON'T THINK HIS LABEL AND YENA EMOTIONALLY ARE GOING TO TAKE HIM TO THE TOP.HE HAS ALL THE QUALITIES TO MAKE IT.HE HAS TO MAKE SOME CHANGES.I LOVE THE LAAITIE.I AM REALLY JUST BEING HONEST WITH MYSELF AND HIM.— siyabonga ngwekazi (@scoopmakhathini) November 9, 2018
The revered hip-hop commentator stated that he believes Emtee might be going through some really frustrating times with his label.
I ALSO DON'T THINK EMTEE IS A BAD BEHAVIOURAL PERSON ... I DO THINK HE MIGHT BE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING WITH HIS LABEL THAT IS FRUSTRATING HIM AND THUS THE BEHAVIOUR IS A BY PRODUCT OF THE FRUSTRATION...MY GUT IS TELLING ME THIS.— siyabonga ngwekazi (@scoopmakhathini) November 9, 2018
Tweeps were quick to also chime in and share their thoughts about Scoop's unpopular views on the young rapper.
I think uTa doesn't think brand image is as important as the amazing music he makes and that's where he gets it wrong. So many years since Roll Up and no endorsements? Ibhudda must do better💔— cape ndiphenintsula (@ImStillProper) November 9, 2018
Couldve DMd him but the boy has the emotional intelligence of a toddler. His album has no real substance. His arrogance means he burns a lot of bridges. The new wave will miss him. 5 years from now he may very well be a starving artist if he doesnt change and stop smoking so much— Amandla Ngawetu Ngok (@roger_nator) November 9, 2018
i like his music but m scared to buy his album coz i feel guilty supporting someone's addiction or out of control behaviour.its like giving a nyaope addict R2 so that the can go buy nyaope.— Phuti (@janmasegela) November 9, 2018
Is Scoop right for airing his views about Emtee in public or should he have spoken to him privately? Weigh in on our comments section.
