Recall that in June, Emtee had already hinted at leaving the label during an interview. Back in June, he said he was contemplating leaving but wanted to negotiate with the label bosses to make sure his leaving is as clean as possible.
In a statement released recently, Emtee said that he talked to his lawyers and they said there was no reason why he couldn’t leave if he wanted to and so, he has.
According to him: “After much back and forth between my attorneys and Ambitiouz Entertainment, my attorneys confirmed that there was legally no reason why I could not leave Ambitiouz Entertainment to pursue my career as I saw fit, I accordingly proceeded to do precisely that, on Thursday 08 August 2019.”
Emtee has been subtly dropping clues since too that he was unhappy at the label. There was a time he was on Twitter and talked about not being able to go on tour to promote his project release because of his label.
He released projects like “Avery”, “Manando”, “DIY 2” under the Ambitiouz Entertainment label and will now ply his trade elsewhere whether under a new label or as an independent artiste. We wish him all the best.
