Mzansi Has Mixed Reactions Over Emtee’s Wife Dropping Assault Case Against Him




Assault charges against rapper Mthembeni Ndevu- better known as Emtee, have reportedly been dropped by his wife, Nicole Chinsamy.

The rapper handed himself over to the police on March 8, 2023, and was charged with assault. According to Nicole, Emtee allegedly assaulted her on Valentine’s Day while she was 7 months pregnant.


“Show them what you did to me, how you beat me up on Valentine’s Day here’s the proof,” said a disgruntled Nicole during a heated argument with the rapper.

According to Sunday World, Emtee is a free man as he has been cleared of assault charges against Nicole.

The award-winning rapper appeared at the Midrand Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 2 May. According to a statement shared by the publication, Nicole said she withdrew the gender-based violence (GBV) case against him.


According to Nicole, she forgives the Manado hitmaker in the interest of their two children, Avery and Logan, as well as their unborn child.

“On 03/03/2023, I opened a common assault case under domestic violence against my husband Mthembeni Ndebele. He was arrested on 08/03/2023. Therefore, I hereby wish to withdraw the charges against Mthembeni Ndevu. I forgave him for the sake of my kids,” reads the statement.

She added, “I was happy and satisfied with the investigation and the court proceedings up to this far.”


The rapper’s lawyer, Dumisani Motsamai, said although they are happy about the withdrawal, they have mixed emotions because Emtee has been deprived of proving his innocence in court.

“There will always be this cloud hanging over his head that he is a woman basher regardless of the charges being withdrawn. This is the image he will forever carry in the court of public opinion. The withdrawal of the charges by the complainant is therefore met with mixed emotions by the accused,” his lawyer wrote in a statement to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

Additionally, the rapper’s team rejected anger management classes proposed by the NPA.


“A diversion program, whilst not necessarily a form of punishment, is nevertheless a form of a corrective measure aimed at rehabilitating a past offender.

“It is an intervention that is typically offered as an alternative sentence to accused people whom the court believes ought to be afforded an opportunity to be corrected and thereafter be reintegrated back to society.

“For reasons already set out extensively above, the accused in this instance does not tick the box,” Motsamai wrote.

Tweeps have reacted to Nicole dropping the charges.
