Review: Emtee’s Third Studio Album Highlights What Matters Most

In light of all that he has endured, Emtee sounds deeply reflective, wiser and in tune with his true self on 'LOGAN'.

LOGAN, Emtee's third full-length album, counts as his first offering since making a foray into independence, following his departure from Ambitiouz Entertainment in 2019 and the subsequent formation of his own imprint, Emtee Records.

LOGAN continues Emtee's long-standing tradition of naming his albums after people dear to him. His first album, released in 2015, was named Avery after his firstborn son. His second album, Manando (2017), was named after a deceased OG of his from his hood, who used to protect and guide him back in the day. The current album is named after his second-born son, Logan. The only deviation from this tradition has been the naming of his EPs DIY (2015) and DIY 2 (2018). Even then, he still managed to have a silhouette image of him and his two sons on the cover of DIY 2.

Since debuting in 2015 with the smash hit "Roll Up", Emtee (real name Mthembini Devu) has had a decorated yet tumultuous career. As the marquee artist of the then-emerging record label Ambitiouz Entertainment, he was poised for greatness given his sheer talent and star power.
