Rapper Emtee Speaks After Turning Himself In To Police
Rapper Emtee has spoken out for the first time since he surrendered to the Midrand Police Station on March 8th, following accusations of physically assaulting his pregnant wife, Nicole Chinsamy, on Valentine’s Day.
Chinsamy was reportedly seven months pregnant at the time of the alleged incident.
Nicole has filed a case of assault against the renowned rapper at the Midrand Police Station.
According to police spokesperson Mavela Masondo, Emtee had a warrant of arrest issued against him and subsequently surrendered to the police station.
“He handed himself in on Wednesday, 8 March and he was taken to the Midrand Magistrates’ Court the same day.”
Speaking to ZiMoja, Emtee says he handed himself over to the police as he has nothing to hide.
“I was informed that a warrant of arrest was out. I know I have nothing to hide, I am not an abuser. I went to the police station with my lawyer.”
He says he was then taken to court and the matter was postponed to a later date. The My Life rapper denies ever laying a hand on Nicole and says she is the physically abusive one.
“She is abusive. She hits me. She got her bruises after coming at me. She came charging at me and I defended myself. I did not hit her. I held her and shook her. Why would never hit a woman and a heavily pregnant one at that.”
Emtee’s wife is seven months pregnant with their third child.
“She is the mother of my kids. She is heavily pregnant, why would I do something of the sort?”
Emtee says Nicole has painted him out to be a monster which is ruining his reputation.
“I have worked very hard to go down as abusive to women,” he says. “She needs to come out and tell the truth.”
