Sjava has advised Emtee fans not to compare him with other rappers.
This follows fans being up in arms over the rapper losing out at the 2021 SA Hip-Hop Awards (SAHHA) this week.
Emtee lost out to Big Zulu in the Album of the Year category and also didn’t win the Artist of the Decade and Best Male.
The Ngempela hitmaker took to Twitter to encourage his fans to continue to support Emtee.
“To all Emtee supporters, you need to understand Emtee can never be compared. If you love, respect and understand what he does, and why he does it, here is my advice: just enjoy his music. Nikhohlwe yizinto eziningi (you have forgotten many things). His mixtape is dropping soon and it’s going to be a classic.”
Emtee took to Twitter following the awards show to congratulate all the winners.
The rapper mentioned what the award would have meant to him after he lost one of his best friends, Lebo Maswangangyi, aka Lebo ATM, in April this year.
“I just wanted to make Lebo proud. He was at every session while we were making Logan,” he wrote.
On Tuesday, Emtee got his fans excited when he revealed he would soon be releasing an EP titled Why Me.
