In a series of videos that has gone viral on social media, local rapper Emtee, real name Mthembeni Ndevu, is seen falling on his back while attempting to perform during a music concert in Lephalale, Limpopo, over the weekend.

In one of the videos the ‘Roll Up’ hitmaker is escorted off the stage by the security guards and the police. Speculations started making rounds after the person who took the video insisted that the rapper was "drunk".

Warning: Video contains strong language.

Rumours of the rapper being high on drugs spread like wildfire on social media, with fellow rapper Cassper Nyovest even weighing in on the matter. Taking to Twitter 'Mama I Made It' urged musicians to "stop playing with the gift" and "drop the drugs".

"Sometimes we are hated for trying to show ni**s the light. God gave us a chance  to make something of ourselves. We got families to feed ni**s. Let’s not play with the gifts. Let’s not laugh at each other as well, Let’s help each other. That cool sh*t is done. Drop the drugs!!!

Cassper wasn't the only the only one who was concerned about Emtee's craft, author and businessman, Vusi Thembekwayo also tweeted about artists "respecting" their "craft".

While many are condemning the use of drugs and alcohol, others are merely urging the rapper to get help.
