Considered a gem and treasure of the nation, Sjava whose real name is Jabulani Hadebe has announced plans to take a break from music after the premiere of this project.
This is because the award winning star believes the fame that his first love has brought him has made him miserable; a position several others would want to share.
Not Sjava though as he has been one of the acts dedicated to the value of quality music and has never looked back since shooting to the limelight with Miss Pru’s debut single, “Ameni.”
Only thing is Sjava is now set to complete a massively impressive term with the “Umqhele” album and it is one that will dominate the trends at the close of the season without doubt.
This is as the African Trap Movement (ATM) sensation makes the body of work a whopping 18 track double disck project of musical art that packs all of the influences that has seen him become one of South Africa’s most loved artists.
The “Umqhele” album features only two already released songs in “Umama” and “Confession;” a fact that means music lovers are in for a special treat this festive season and beyond.
Sjava didn’t go this effort alone as he scored the feature of talented acts including Buhlebendalo, Mzukulu, Anzo, Fatso, Bongani Radebe, Howard and Nue Sam.
The “Umqhele” album comes with the abundance of Sjava’s talent, craft and artistry as he again fuses all of the tribal flavours so distinct and unique in his pride for the Motherland.
We can only hope this isn’t a ‘goodbye’ but a ‘see you later’ as Sjava still holds a world of contribution to fans as well as an industry that has also giving him so much.
