Emtee reportedly crashed two of his expensive cars a Mercedes-Benz GLE 4×4 and A45 AMG in less than two weeks.
According to a report by Sunday World Emtee had a series of unfortunate events occur to him this year beside his alleged saga with the label. The Roll Up hit-maker spent time in hospital after he was involved in two accidents which left his two cars damaged, he refused to report the matter to the police. The paper alleged that Ambitiouz Entertainment came to the rapper’s rescue.
On a written statement seen by Sunday World, Emtee was driving a Mercedes-Benz GLE 4×4 with two unknown people in the car when he allegedly crashed it into a street pole in January. He allegedly fled the scene and left the damaged vehicle behind.
“The record label did not repossess the Mercedes-Benz as alleged. At around 6am on Sunday 27th January 2019, Ambitiouz received a call from a tow-truck driver informing us about an unattended Mercedez Benz GLE 4×4 that was involved in an accident. The Ambitiouz team quickly rushed to the scene and on their arrival, Emtee and the two passengers were not there. The car was towed to an approved panel beater in Sandton, who gave us a quote of R706,787.
“The Ambitiouz team then organised transport for Emtee to be taken from his home to a hospital in Midrand to be treated. The label further assisted in him being admitted and contributed towards his medical bill.
“Ambitiouz Entertainment management went to visit him later in hospital and requested that he make a statement to the police in order to assist with insurance claims which he refused. The reasons for his refusal cannot be disclosed by the label.
“As a result he requested the label to repair the car, the cost of which he has signed an acknowledgement of debt [to pay],” read the statement.
The statement further alleged that two weeks after the accident, Emtee allegedly crashed another Mercedes- Benz, this time an A45 AMG.
“The vehicle was towed to a panel beater and the repair cost was R244,371 and these damages have not been reported [to the police] for reasons known to him,” read the statement.
