- Sjava once had only the cleaners at a concert loving his music
- He has remained humble despite his success, claiming to only make music he is proud of
- The musician might be taking a break after releasing some new music
BET award winner, Sjava once performed where only the cleaners seemed to appreciate his music, but he has come a long way since then.
Sjava revealed that during this one particular gig, he only had two cleaners cheering him on while everyone else didn’t pay him any attention. He also decided to call one of them onto the stage and she was absolutely thrilled.
He has been very clear that he did not get into the music industry to make himself famous, he only wanted to do what he loved but he is very appreciative of the support he has received.
TimesLIVE reports that the musician is not too worried about what others think of his music and feels that success can only be achieved if you are happy and proud of what you create.
Briefly.co.za gathered that he also feels that by constantly obsessing with other people’s opinion and chasing fame, you begin to lose apart of yourself and you’ll never be happy.
He also has been thinking about taking a break from music to focus on other projects and to look at making a difference in people’s lives.
Although he is not entirely sure what he will do, he knows that it would be a good thing to step away from the industry after he releases his new music.
While Sjava had simple start to his career in music, he has made a name for himself.
His journey started when he used to busk on the streets to earn some money but now he has had one of his songs in the Marvel blockbuster, ‘Black Panther’.
Not to mention he was also the first South African to win a BET award for the Viewer’s Choice Best International Act. AKA and Cassper Nyovest have previously been nominated in this category but never managed to win it.
