A social media user confronted Mzansi singer, Sjava, about his Twitter account not being verified but the Mzansi star didn’t take to it too lightly.
Not being verified on Twitter usually means that the account could be a fake. Fans usually distrust accounts that are not verified because it is a known fact that people who are often bored create fake celebrity accounts.
Two months ago, Sjava claimed that his social media accounts were hacked and was forced to create new accounts. But fans were worried that his accounts were not verified and it is leading to much confusion among followers.
But what fans didn’t realise is that verifying an account is quite a process. One has to apply for verification of a personal profile and provide a copy of a photo ID like a passport or driver’s licence.
The most important factor of getting verified on Twitter is that the profile is of public interest, in this case, Sjava is a famous BET Award winner. So not being verified, makes him an easy target for people to impersonate him.
This is how Sjava responded to having his account not being verified.
Sjava didn't think he said anything wrong answering some of his followers comments.
But after a tweep explained to him the important of having his account verified, another tweep offered to help him get it done, and Sjava graciously complied.
A few days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi singer Sjava was honoured to perform at A Colors Show in Berlin, Germany. He took to social media to thank the organisers for the privilege and honour.
Artist and actor, Sjava, delivered a deep and heartfelt tribute to his mother in the song, uMama produced by Mace and taken from his sophomore album, Umqhele at A Colors Show in Berlin in Germany recently.
According to the Daily Sun, A Colors Show is a unique aesthetic music platform showcasing the exceptional talent of artistes from around the world. Sjava is the third South African artist to perform on the show. Rappers Bylwansta and Yugen Blackrok appeared on the show in 2017 and a few weeks ago, respectively.
