Sjava at the peak of his music career
Sjava’s international acclaim came at a time when he was just starting to enjoy the fruits of being a local superstar.
Two albums into his music career and the Ambitiouz Entertainment signee has made unmatched strides in extending his brand far beyond our borders.
This was helped by his prominent feature in Black Panther‘s soundtrack — produced by Kendrick Lamar’s Top Dawg Entertainment.
With a buzzing acting career on the horizon, Sjava made his way to the coveted Colors studio to perform his hit single, uMama, to commemorate the recently-passed Mother’s Day.
He becomes the third South African musician to feature on popular German show. Alternative rapper, ByLwansta, and Yugen Blakrok, have both represented the country in the recent past.
People took to social media in reaction to Sjava’s performance, coining it as one of the best the show’s ever hosted. He sure has made us all proud.
Brother @Sjava_atm … I salute you … I bow! Well done on this achievement … a show I follow religiously on YouTube and I am so proud to have one of our own on this MASSIVE platform! @colorsxstudios bless you guys !! pic.twitter.com/7OnSq1dDO8
