The 'One Night with Sjava' Concert Has Left South Africans in Their Feels
Not only did Sjava pay homage to both his mother and grandmother, he also shared a tribute to victims of gender-based violence.
Following the release of his recent album Umqhele, South African hip-hop artist Sjava announced that he would be putting on his live show "One Night with Sjava" at Pretoria's Sun Arena on October 27th. His performance last night has undoubtedly left South Africans in their feels. Sjava had his mother, clad in her traditional Zulu regalia, open the live show and then went on to perform his 2018 track "Ugogo" (a song about his grandmother) immediately after. The artist not only paid homage to the two women who raised him but also dedicated part of the show to remembering South African women who were victims of gender-based violence.
It was an unforgettable night where Sjava performed several fan favorites including "Umqhele" and "Egoli", a track he did with Mlindo The Vocalist where he talks about going to the "City of Gold" and making enough money to look after his mother.
Many South Africans have praised the artist's live show and called it an authentic display of his Zulu culture. From the traditional Zulu attire, instruments and dancers, Sjava really brought his A-game no cap!
The likes of Cassper Nyovest, Black Coffee, Mzilikazi wa Afrika and others all showed their support on social media and congratulated Sjava on a spectacular show.
