Rapper Emtee Breaks Silence Following Self-Surrender To Police On Assault Charges
Rapper Emtee has broken his silence for the first time since turning himself in to the Midrand Police Station on March 8th.
He had been accused of physically assaulting his pregnant wife, Nicole Chinsamy, on Valentine’s Day.
Chinsamy was seven months pregnant during the alleged incident and she has since filed an assault case against the renowned rapper at the Midrand Police Station.
Emtee had a warrant of arrest issued against him, and he subsequently surrendered to the police station, according to police spokesperson Mavela Masondo.
“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 since 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.”
