Despite people’s continuous remarks towards Sjava’s dressing and hairstyles, the musician often remains calm but this time, he clapped back at fans who commented that he needed to change his hairdresser and fashion stylist.
Many people have showed concern over Sjava’s looks in the past, saying he doesn’t put any effort in the way he looks. But he has always turned the other way, never fazed by their comments because he was always comfortable in his own skin.
However, since he started performing for an international audience, trolls have dragged the rapper, accusing him of not bathing and calling for him to clean himself up by wearing clothes that will contribute towards the growth of his brand as a muso.
This evoked a huge debate on Twitter, with lots of social media followers saying Sjava must change while others said he should remain the way he is, but all Sjava did was laugh it all off.
One fan wrote: “I love your music, energy, originality, humble nature, nje… uyindoda ephelele but I want to see the international celebrity in you. The whole world is looking at you now! So you must also invest in yourself. Get a professional person to dress you.”
But another fan wrote that he must be who he is and do not do things to please people and follow trends.
“I love him, and his clothes define him and who he is. Don’t tryna change him and trust me many of his fans don’t mind how he dresses. It actually inspires us to also dress in an appropriate manner that is comfortable to us than to dress or wear things according to trends.”
Check out how it went down on Twitter below:
Sjava responded saying: "They think this is a modelling show. We aren’t modeling here."
But his fans defended him well.
Meanwhile, yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that Sjava had reached his limit with people dragging him down for his misused English. The superstar does not feel that he needs to speak a certain level of English to be successful, and if you do, he couldn’t care less.
The BET award winner is not worried about what others think of him. He comes from a humble upbringing that equipped him to handle negative people and situations. Briefly.co.za knows that Sjava prefers to answer questions and converse in his home language, isiZulu. Sjava is not 100% comfortable with the English language, and this has sometimes been an issue.
Recently, a spicy Twitter user decided to shame Sjava for his inability to converse freely in the English language. The tweet was soon deleted after Sjava gave her a piece of his mind. Sjava, in isiZulu of course, clapped back hard. The super talented artist reminded the hater, in a humorous manner, that he grew up in a rank and that he is not ashamed of it and never will be.
