“I’m no longer a local artist” – Emtee boost

Mthembeni Ndevu, better known as Emtee, begins the new year by outlining his expectations.


Despite the criticism, the rap star is known to be confident in his abilities.

Taking to Twitter at the start of the year, the South African superstar says he is no longer a local artist, neither was he an underground artist.

“In 2024 I’m no longer a local artist. I was never an underground artist either,” he wrote.

While a few kicked against his claim, others dropped words of advice for the rapper.

Emtee is set to release his DIY3 album, which he used the whole of 2023 to cook.

“Thank you for your patience. DIY3 is done. It’s being mixed and mastered. Just that when you are your boss, there’s

no deadline. Music is galore and I’ve never stopped recording might fuck around and drop 2 or more projects in 2024.”

A few days before 2023 last year ended, the rapper shared a cover of the album; it was a photo of himself with his two boys and little daughter.
