Sjava took to social media recently to remember late rapper ProKid. The talented Mzansi hip-hop artist passed on in 2018.
He was one of the best rappers the country has ever produced. He dropped bangers such as Ungaphel'Umoya Son, Sekele, Soweto and Bhampa when he was still in his prime.
The Umama hitmaker was a fan of Pro's work. Sjava took to Twitter to pay homage to the late rap legend. He shared that Pro's pen game was "rare" as most of his lyrics were about the Mzansi lifestyle. According to SAHipHopMag, Sjava wrote:
"One thing I will forever appreciate ngo Pro Kid is that his Bars were Proudly Soweto and South African that’s very rare in SA Hip Hop."
