Emtee set to return with Sliqe collaborat­ion after abuse claim


MULTI platinum-selling and award-winning rapper Emtee has teased a new single alongside veteran hip-hop DJ Sliqe and trailblazi­ng newcomer 25K.

Sliqe shared on Twitter the song will be released tomorrow and will also feature Saudi.

Emtee and Sliqe, who previously collaborat­ed on last year’s Sta Soft shared a joint Instagram post on Monday, which included a snippet of Emtee performing the song’s catchy hook.

Behind him during his performanc­e in the video are the featured artists along with several other industry friends, including Marcus Harvey and Flow Jones.

While Emtee hasn’t released a project since 2021’s Logan, he’s been a frequent feature on other artists’ songs.

Over the past year he’s featured on music by the likes of Nasty C, Yanga Chief and Chad Da Don. He also featured on one of the standout singles (Crown) off the late AKA’s recently released album, Mass Country.

Despite his productivi­ty musically, lately Emtee’s been maintainin­g a low profile following the fall-out from his controvers­ial Instagram Live in which the 30-year-old rapper’s wife and mother of his two children, Nicole Kendall Ndevu, alleged he had physically assaulted her.

The live video, which saw her allege she was seven months pregnant at the time, culminated in his reported arrest after he handed himself over to police in early March after she opened a case of assault against him.

According to several media reports, he was taken into police custody at the Midrand Police Station where he was then allegedly taken to court before being granted bail.
