It’s only been two weeks into the new year and the streets are already witnessing a new beef! Emtee went onto Twitter to shut down any rumours or allegations about him being affiliated with LaFlame from the Wrecking Crew. Emtee says that Flame should stop acting like they are familiar or they know each other on that level.
Now this is quite interesting for a lot of reasons but mainly because A-Reece is LaFlame’s crew member at The Wrecking Crew and we all know how that relationship ended for A-Reece, Emtee and Ambitiouz Ent. Flame was part of the Ambitiouz stable too but ended up leaving with Fifi Cooper and BenchmarQ. This was obviously a start of a series of wars.
Ey y’all need to stop asking me about Flame. Never fucked wid him first time I saw him. someone tell dat kid I don’t know him! He should stop actin like he know me. I ain’t never had convo with the clown. Ever! Travis Scott wanna be ass nigga

LaFlame did not take Emtee’s comment sitting down, he clapped backed and said
“Somebody tell this f**k nigga Emtee I said fuck him with a long one.”
Clearly Flame did not take this lightly. Its hard not to wonder what more happened because this seems way more than a mere label fight.
We do not promote violence at all, but if this beef promises us great music and healthy competition then we are here for it. Check out the Tweets and reactions below. Let us know what you think in the comment section.

Top five Idols Give It Their All
Nosipho bows out of Idols after a nod from Matthew Knowles.
After 11 million votes over the past week, the Top Five contenders for the SA Idols crown have been announced – and Nosipho is not be among them. The 18-year-old took her final bow after getting the least votes; but not before receiving a vote of confidence from none other than Beyoncé’s dad and Destiny’s Child architect Matthew Knowles, who was a guest judge on tonight’s show.
Those left performed two songs each under the theme How It Should Have Been Done. The contestants took butchered songs by Wooden Mic contenders and showed Mzansi how they should have been done.
First up was Thando, who sang Jennifer Hudson’s Spotlight and Weakness In Me by Keisha White. Randall felt the “depth of feeling” was going to keep her in the competition for at least another week. Unathi called her performances bright and luminescent. Somizi and Matthew advised her to bring more energy into her performance instead of relying only on her pipes.
Niyaaz took a swing at Sam Smith’s Too Good At Goodbyes and Robin Thicke’s Lost Without You. Unathi said she would “love” for someone to sing at her like that every day; Matthew said he’d chosen great songs; Somizi enjoyed himself and Randall said the only thing Niyaaz had to think about was how to pick up the votes from fans of the fallen Idols.
Singing a Beyonce song in front of the man who “made” her must have been nerve-wrecking, but King B got a thumbs up from Matthew for his rendition of Irreplaceable. He also chose Say Something by A Great Big World. Randall offered up some advice along with praises. “There are performances when I think you can win this, and others where you’ve let me down. Consistency at this stage is critical,” he cautioned.
Yanga, whom all the judges predicted would be in the final two, chose What Is Love by the Empire cast and Whitney Houston’s eternal I Will Always Love You. “That was unbelievably beautiful,” proclaimed Somizi. Randall praised her song choices and her “fantastic” interpretation of Whitney’s ever-green classic. “You were a star!” declared Matthew.
Bringing the show to an end was Thato, who seems to be blossoming at just the right time. The judges unanimously declared him the winner of the first round after his performance of The Soil’s Inkomo. He followed it with Imibuzo by Nathi, which brought out profuse praise from Randall. “You are the one performer who sees beyond this competition, and you’ve got the biggest smile of all the contestants.” Unathi said she was imagining his name being called out at a festival, while Somizi said he was memorable.
Now that the number of contestants can be counted on one hand, the heat is seriously on. Fans have their work cut out for them as they fight for their faves to stay in the race.
