Rapper Emtee from South Africa saw enormous success from what began as a “joke” or the appearance of one. His song “Roll Up,” which was recorded precisely seven years ago, is being discussed here.

According to the rapper, it was a lighthearted recording. However, it took off and became one of his most memorable songs to date—a veritable hit.

Therefore, it makes sense that Emtee would consider the song nearly ten years after it was recorded and found fame. You can view his reflection on the song’s popularity and the overwhelming reception it garnered in a post below on his official Instagram page.

It’s interesting to note that Emtee’s life and profession have undergone significant changes in the time since the song was produced. He had (acrimoniously) quit Ambitiouz Entertainment and is currently running his own record label, to which a musical pair is signed.

That’s not all, though. In addition, he has put out a number of additional tracks and strengthened his position in South Africa’s music industry. Sadly, he and his wife, Nicole Chinsamy, have had a number of public arguments, and their marriage has not always been ideal.
