Emtee's message to young fathers

29 December 2016
The rapper has some words of wisdom.
It's no doubt that Emtee is one proud father. The 23-year-old rapper even named his debut album after his son Avery.

In an interview with Drum, the award-winning rapper shared a message to young fathers.

He first explained that he's always imagined how his life would have been like if his father was not around.

"I look at a lot of kids or a lot of people my age group who I grew up with, who didn't have fathers and see how far they've come, the challenges and the things they've had to go through without their fathers being there."

He said it doesn't matter if you're from a rich or poor family. "I'm from a poor family but I still managed. Money and all the other materialistic resources don't really mean anything especially if you are there as a father.

"The child will even forget that there's a remote toy car that he needs if his father is always there playing games with him, running around. It's very significant. The child will also take on the world with a little bit of confidence knowing that 'I have a father'."
