SOUTH African rapper Emtee, who was at the Solani’s Shisanyama on Friday evening, said he feeds off from the fans’ energy every time he is in the country.

The rapper said this during an interview after his energetic performance.

“I probably have been in the country more than 10 times and the one thing that always gets to me is the energy from my Eswatini fans. It is to date nothing I have ever seen before,” said the rapper.

He took to stage at around 1am where over 1 000 fans were eagerly waiting for him.

He jumped on stage singing his debut hit song ‘Roll up’. 

Clad in a red tracksuit paired with orange sneakers and a cap which purposely hid his face, the rapper was sleek and highly energetic.

He had his fans eating from of the palm of his hand. Everyone on the Solani’s lawn was singing along each song dropped by the rapper. Before singing his fourth song ‘We up’, the rapper paused for a couple of minutes and then delivered the song with so much emotion.

The emotions could be felt by the audience with every line from the song. Just like his state of sobriety, the South African rapper’s performance ended on a high.

When further interviewed Emtee, real name Mthembeni, said he has always seen himself as a boss hence he recently opened his own company.  “I am the ‘dopest’ in the game, nothing is ever going to bring me down. I see myself as a boss that is why I opened my own recording company,” said the rapper.

He was responding to a question on how rebranding himself has been, since he was dropped by his former label Ambitiouz Entertainment.

The rapper lost almost all his possessions in the form of houses, cars and money.

The night was not only about Emtee as local rapper NQ also launched her EP at the same event.

She changed the vibe too with her songs and dance moves from her EP titled ‘Body of Work’. Her rap songs spoke of women owning themselves and being comfortable in their skin and body.

NQ, real name Nqobile Magongo, got everyone hyped up when she performed her hit song ‘Kumnandzi’. It was the perfect timing for her to sing that song as everyone was at the climax of fun, shown by excessive dancing and screaming.

Also part of the launch were artists  Sarnilo, South African based rapper Rendition and the Solani’s resident deejays who delivered their usual best.

During an interview, NQ shared that she was happy and thankful for the support.

“This was amazing and who knows we might have a project lined up between me and Emtee but no one knows what might happen,” teased NQ.

Adding, she said she was trying to perfect her skills and art as she still had a lot of projects in the pipeline and was hoping they would work out well.
