He said that it was a decision he did not make lightly and without due consideration.
“As a matter of fact, once the idea took root in my mind, my first reaction was to seek legal advice or my contractual obligations to the label if at all and secondly the steps that needed to be taken to do this, in the swiftest and amicable way possible,” said Emtee.
He also said after back and forth between his legal team and the label, his legal team confirmed that there was legally no reason why he could not leave the record label to pursue his career as he sees fit. On Thursday 08 August 2019, he says he accordingly proceeded to do precisely that.
“I would like to thank my family, immediate and extend. My friends and supporters as well as fellow artists in the music and creative sector generally, who supported me. I have no doubt that you will continue to support me as I embark on a new journey in my career, the details of which I shall make public in due course,” shared the rapper.
Emtee said that his attorney reached out to the label requesting all necessary documents that would assist in creating a smooth transition.
In closing, Emtee said he is in great spirits and working harder than ever.
