South African rapper Emtee real name Mthembeni Ndevu has officially left Ambitiouz Entertainment.
The rapper posted a full statement explaining why he decided to leave the record label and the process he went through to be able to make a good exit.
The statement which was issued by the ‘Roll Up’ rapper reads as follows: “Over the past few months there has been a lot of speculation in regard to my position at Ambitiouz Entertainment.
“After some thought and for the sake of my family, friends and my supporters worldwide, I have decided it is best to clarify things and set the record straight. Following a long and in-depth reflection on my career as an artist, where I am now and where I see myself in the next few years, I have made a decision that the time has come for me to now part ways with Ambitious Entertainment.
“This is a decision I did not make lightly and without due consideration. As a matter of fact, once the idea took root in my mind, my first reaction was to seek legal advice on my contractual obligations to the label if at all and secondly the steps that needed to be taken to do this, in the most swift and amicable way possible.
“On the back of this, my attorney reached out to Ambitious Entertainment requesting all necessary documents that would assist in creating a smooth transition. After much back and forth between my attorneys and Ambitious Entertainment, my attorneys confirmed that there was legally no reason why I could not leave Ambitious Entertainment to pursue my career as I saw fit. I accordingly proceeded to do precisely that, on Thursday 08 August 2019.
“I would like to thank my family, immediate and extended. My friends and my supporters as well as fellow artists in the music and creative sector generally, who supported me. I have no doubt that you will continue to support me as I embark on a new journey in my career, the details of which I shall make public in due course. Finally, I am in great spirit and working harder than ever. Emtee”
