Emtee has broken his silence over his ‘collapse’ during a performance over the weekend after video footage of the incident went viral on social media.
“I’m doing great. Absolutely fine. I just fell. The security was worried so they took me backstage. The stage was very small and I had to watch my step. It must’ve been a wire that made me fall because I wouldn’t have just fallen out of the blue.”
Emtee said he wasn’t phased by the comments around the incident, many involving drugs and alcohol claims.
“You know, with hip-hop there will always be rivalry and putting each other down. Like, ‘look at him. Hahaha.’ ”
“These people don’t know me. They don’t hang around me.”
Answering questions about his comments on Twitter where he said he wasn’t in a good space, Emtee said he had lost an aunt and her death had affected him.
“My aunt had just passed away and it was hard for me. I’m a studio junkie so I went into studio.”
He said he was “fine” mentally and physically and did not see the need to get help.
“I’ve been through a lot of things on my own and I don’t need to see a doctor. I just released a song and I am great”
Concerned fans took to Twitter to appeal to the hitmaker to “get help” after he ‘collapsed’ on stage.
