The single titled Ghetto Hero, was released last Friday under his record label and has since enjoyed radio and TV rotations, fans are also loving the song and the inspiration behind it. However, someone is not happy about the release.
A promising young musician by the name Jacobs Jolondy is not having it with Emtee as he accuses Emtee of stealing the “Ghetto Hero” song and some other songs released by the well-known rapper since he became famous, Jacobs said he felt mistreated by Emtee as it isn’t the first time he is using his song without crediting him for it.
Jacobs claimed he was in a team of music makers alongside Sjava and Emtee back in 2014 before they became popular.
The whole thing pissed me off. This is not the first time. His song Ready was also released without crediting me. I was part of the team in 2014 before they all became famous. We had worked on a lot of songs together
Said the pained young rapper.
He takes the music we make together and claims it as his, but now the problem for him is I have all the originals of the songs we made back then
Emtee acknowledged the fact that he had worked with Jacobs in the past but the record he made with him was an “old sketch”.
These people know that I’m famous. So, since they are not where I am, they will do anything to bring me down, whatever originals he says he has are all fake. I’m the one who has originals.
Jacobs is not the only one pained about this act, there is another Cameroon born, South Africa raised artiste whose name is Makizar, he claims he also once had the same experience with Emtee.
Emtee is used to doing this. In his song My Enemies, he used pieces of my work without crediting me, every rapper recognized their work, even if it’s a line or two
There is another music producer in the picture, he confirmed that Emtee is known for using other underground artistes/producer materials without giving them credits, the producer doesn’t want his name mentioned.
Emtee has stolen a lot of beats and songs from rising artists. They are within their right to claim their work and expose him
What do you think of this situation, do you think Emtee is really taking advantage of these artistes or they are just trying to get at him because he is famous? drop your comments below.
