“The whole thing pissed me off. This is not the first time. His song Ready was also released without crediting me. I was part of the team in 2014 before they all became famous. We had worked on a lot of songs together,” lamented the young rapper.

Though he agreed that he worked with Jacobs in the past, Emtee refuted the accusation and reports that he stole his latest single from the young musician. Instead, he said he worked hard to get to his present stage in the industry and wouldn’t steal his own song.

Also, rapper Emtee said he’s the one who has the originals which his accuser claims to be in possession of. In his explanation, he said the accusations come from people who are jealous of what he has achieved in the industry fo far and would go to any length to pull him down. Therefore, he decided he’s not going to pay any attention to the whole drama because that will only make him vulnerable.
