Sjava has opened up on how he won't let fame and the industry change him - in particular his dress sense. In a recent interview, he said that he doesn't succumb to the pressure of having to wear new clothes all the time.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Sjava said:
"There's no way that I can slay every day. That's just unnecessary pressure."
The singer said he would rather be famous for repeating outifts or having uncombed hair than to be a fashion trendsetter.
He said that the pressure to look a certain way as a celebrity was fueled by celebrities themselves.
"If I have one suit only, I will wear it repeatedly. What else must I do? I won't be that guy running around from designer to designer begging for clothes I can't afford."
Sjava's success is proof that his fans don't care much for the external frills but rather love the man for his talent. Briefly.co.za recently reported that the muso took to the streets to share his BET Award with fans. The musician believed that if fans could touch and see the award, they could understand and believe in his mantra that all dreams are possible.
