In the past week, some major brands and events - DStv Mzansi Viewers' Choice Awards and Cape Town International Jazz Festival - have cancelled musician Sjava after the news of his alleged abuse and rape case went viral.

Briefly.co.za learnt that the SABC however will continue to play Sjava's music on its various radio and television channels uninterrupted amid allegations.

According to The Sowetan, the SABC will let the law take its course in Sjava's case before it reaches a decision to stop playing his music.

A few weeks ago, Sjava went onto Instagram to thank SABC1 for airing his live show.

"Sanibonani ngiyayibona imlayezo emihle eningithumela yona nge show edlalayo Ngibonge kakhulu ku @mzansi_fosho for screening this show baningi abantu abazoyibuka and be inspired," he wrote.

Organisers distanced themselves when they learnt that Sjava's ex-girlfriend Lady Zamar opened cases of abuse and rape against him.

Briefly.co.za reported that loyal Sjava fans have come out guns blazing to show him support and defend him as he battles a rape charge levelled against him by musician and former girlfriend, Lady Zamar. The hashtag #JusticeForSjava is still trending on Twitter and most users question whether Lady Zamar's allegations had any truth to them.
