Local muso, Sjava, has explained why so many fans end up with photos of them together in which he looks grumpy and doesn't smile. He says if he's not smiling in a pic - the fan didn't greet him.
Musician Sjava has often shown that he is a man who believes in staying true to your roots and heritage.
Apparently, being respectful and having proper manners is just as important to the man - he recently explained why there are photos of him with fans in which he's not smiling at all.
In fact, in some snaps, Sjava looks downright grumpy. However, there's a good reason for this.
Sjava took to social media to address his lack of smiling - if he's not showing those pearly whites, the fan in the photo didn't greet him.
"If you see me not smiling in the picture just know that the person I’m posing with didn’t greet me."
While it is understandable for fans to get tongue-tied and flustered around someone they admire so much, that doesn't seem to be a good enough excuse for Sjava.
If you don't greet him, don't expect a smile from the popular muso.
