The battle between Ambitiouz Entertainment and rapper Emtee is far from over and it’s gotten so serious that the matter is now in front of the courts.
Emtee has been taking his former label to task on social media over not having awards he won at the stable in his possession and according to a new report Emtee has done more than vent on the timeline.
According to a report by Sunday World, Emtee and the label are in court over his royalties and personal achievements from the stable.
The publication reports that Emtee is demanding that Ambitiouz release his royalties all the way from his debut album Avery, released in 2015.
Last year, the Mandado hitmaker left the label after being unhappy at the label for some time.
The rapper confirmed to Sunday World that indeed he and the Kgosithebe Mahumapelo owned label are involved in a court battle.
“Ubani okutshele lento? (Who told you this info). Yes, there is a court case going on, but please speak to my lawyers. They will be able to tell you everything relating to it,” the rapper told the publication.
Insiders speaking to Sunday World allege that the rapper is looking to have the record label, which released Emtee’s three albums, release documents that will show exactly how much the rapper made whilst signed to them.
“Emtee is angry at the fact that he never received a cent from his first album except for being paid a monthly salary as an employee at Ambitiouz.”
Ambitiouz did not give a comment to the publication on the matter but after calls for the record label to fall on social media decided to clap back at tweeps saying that they should return Emtee’s awards.
