Renowned South African rapper, Emtee, whose real name is Mthembeni Ndevu, has recently filed for divorce from his wife, Nicole Chinsamy. The couple’s rocky relationship has caught the media’s attention, with Chinsamy having previously accused Emtee of assault. Although the charges have been withdrawn, their relationship has been fraught with difficulties.
Emtee’s career beginnings and rise to fame
Emtee was born in Matatiele and raised in Rockville, Soweto. At the age of 17, he began participating in local talent shows, and his career gained momentum shortly after. He gained national recognition with his 2015 hit single “Roll Up” and his debut album, Avery, released under Ambitiouz Entertainment. Avery was named to honor his firstborn son and earned a platinum certification from the Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA).
Personal challenges and resilience
Despite Emtee’s success in the music industry, he has faced personal challenges that have drawn attention away from his music. In 2017, he accidentally exposed his genitals on Instagram Live, causing controversy. More recently, his turbulent relationship with his wife has been scrutinized. However, Emtee remains committed to his musical endeavors and continues to create authentic music that resonates with his dedicated fan base.
In addition to his musical talents, Emtee has ventured into entrepreneurship and launched his clothing line, ATM (African Trap Movement) Clothing, in 2016. This venture showcases his creative drive and determination to make a positive impact in the fashion industry, further solidifying his status as a multifaceted artist.
As Emtee’s divorce proceedings continue, he and his estranged wife will likely face ongoing media and public scrutiny. However, Emtee’s resilience in adversity is a testament to his strength and dedication to his craft. As he continues to create music and focus on his various endeavors, we hope that Emtee finds the support and guidance he needs to navigate this difficult period.
