SJAVA the sit down

SJAVA

BET AWARD WINNING MUSICIAN

MALL OF THE SOUTH SIDE STEP

Sjava has cemented himself in the industry as a musical heavy weight

He is one to watch after becoming the second South African to win the acclaimed BET award.  A humble man worth his salt he is not only an acclaimed musician but has also showed his talent in Film and Television where both his acting and singing skills were displayed in home grown shows like Generations, Zone 14, 7de Laan, Soul City and the controversial Gugu no Andile saw him picking up a SAFTA nomination in 2009.

MORE ABOUT SJAVA

Despite not winning the SAFTA that year, he received much acclaim for his acting and went on to secure a spot to be on the judging panel of the SAFTA’s for two consecutive years thereafter.

Not tied down by restrictions in the entertainment industry, the acclaimed musician also had a hand in creating catchy TV advert and show jingles, including Kilm, Jika Majika (#1 dance show in SA) and Psalted (Gospel show on SABC2), as well as the theme song for popular SA Drama series on Mzansi Magic “iSikizi.” He successfully continues to showcase his musical talents diverse beyond his award-winning album. Born Jabulani Hadebe, in Bergville KZN, the young artist, rose to fame, in 2015 after he was featured on the chorus of Miss Pru’s single, “Ameni.” At an early age, the proudly Zulu singer knew that he wanted to pursue a career in the arts. Believing and trusting his passion for the arts even when the road ahead was at some points though. The multitalented musician’s debut album, “lsina Muva” scooped up 3 nominations at the 15th annual Metro FM awards including a nomination for Best African Pop Album and ultimately won “Best Produced Album” at the 16th annual Metro FM awards.

Continuing on the road of success, Sjava having been nominated for a SAMA under Best Collaboration for his smash hit single “Ngempela”, had the honour of performing the single at the opening announcement nominations party. It might well be that the sky is not the limit for this well-loved and respected creative, his is a journey well worth watching!
