The case against Sjava continues to top headlines in South Africa. At this point, it seems that the whole country is against Sjava after it emerged that he allegedly assaulted Lady Zamar.
Amidst all the chaos, he has re-released his EP Umphako under a new label, Next Level Entertainment.
His current record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment has been firmly behind the musician, reposting his statements and promoting all his project. It is not clear why he has re-released his EP under the new label.
His professional and personal reputation has suffered some serious damage with brands dropping him, such as DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards and Cape Town International Jazz Festival.
He still has a loyal fan base who have pleaded his case and believe he is innocent.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that his fans have started a hashtag, #JusticeForSjava in an attempt to support the beleaguered musician.
His fans were questioning whether Lady Zamar’s allegations had any truth to them.
This wouldn’t be the first time fans have been sceptical, Briefly.co.za recently reported that after the news broke, social media streets were chaotic. There are peeps who stand behind and support Zamar, and others think she’s just a jealous ex trying to ruin Sjava’s reputation.
Here are some of the tweets under the hashtag:
@JustlookP: #ladyzamar she’s jealous of @Sjava_atm success…#Justiceforsjava
@Cde_Masonwabe: We live in a very sexist world. GBV has proven to be nothing but a war. #MenvWomen, only the courts must determine who’s guilty. We’re not taking sides, we just want justice for both parties. Do not crucify any party, they will have their day in court #JusticeForSjava #ladyzamar
@NwanaVaida: #Justiceforsjava #IstandWithSjava As long he was never found guilty I stand with him… Inkabi
