Following the shocking exodus of top-notch artists including B3nchmarq, A Reece and Fifi Cooper from record label Ambitiouz on Friday, Emtee has been called out for being a ‘snitch’.
Twitter didn’t waste time in accusing rapper Emtee of betraying his counterparts when it became clear that he wasn’t leaving the label like they did.
It was so bad that B3nchmarq tweeted Emtee, expressing his disappointment. He equally accused him of selling his soul by staying with the label.
The record label has been accused of buying Emtee a house and car. This was seen as a strategy to make him stay on board and thus make other artists appear “ungrateful”.
Notwithstanding, the Roll Up hit maker refuted the claims, saying he bought not only himself, but his family and friends, a house.
The rapper maintained that he is still with the label because he is comfortable there. In fact, Emtee says the record label will continue to be successful as long as he’s still part of it.
In his message to his critics, Emtee said his father taught him to finish whatever he started. Thus, he is ready to stay with the label for as long as it takes.
“My parents are proud of me. Avery [his daughter] will know how to swim in a few days, @african_trap (his record label) is a functioning company. They mad,” he responded to his critics.
My parents are proud of me. Avery will know how to swim in a few days, @african_trap is a functioning company. Dey mad 🤔

Last week, Fifi Cooper, A Reece, and B3nchmarq took everyone by surprise when they took turns to announce their departure from the record label. The trio caused quite a frenzy on Twitter on Friday afternoon after taking to social media to announce that they no longer have any ties with the label. Meanwhile, there was no explanation for their sudden departure.
A Reece tweeted;
“To whom this may concern the most: The fans. I would like to say that I’m no longer a part of @AmbitiouzEnt as of now moving forward.”

Fifi Cooper also announced her departure from Ambitiouz Entertainment via her handle;
“Yoh listen, note that I am no longer an @ambitiouz_entertainment artist. It’s been good but all good things come to an end. Fifi Nation, still yours the whole time. . . I’ve decided to push Fifi Cooper under fificooper’s Record Label MòCooper Records. I’ve learned I’m ready and it’s TIME!!!!”

Similarly, Fifi’s label mate and one half of B3nchmarq P Jay also followed suit and announced that B3nchmarq is no longer a part of Ambitiouz;
“To the #TamatiGang. We would like to say that we’re no longer part of #AmbitiouzEnt as of now moving forward.”

The label has since responded in a series of tweets, criticising B3nchmarq for being a “financial loss.” According the label, there has been many failed attempts to push his music.
Regarding Fifi Cooper and A Reece, the label said a statement would be released soon. However, it hinted that the matter might be taken to court.
