Read Sjava's full statement below:
Fans are overjoyed for Sjava as he takes this critical step in his career.
One wrote, "Let's all congratulate Sjava for finally leaving Ambitiouz. As fans, we have been waiting for this day for year. I hope (we) will keep supporting his music as he journeys independently."
Another fan said, "Sjava left Ambitiouz Entertainment. A lot of South Africans are happy right now."
Earlier this month, Briefly.co.za reported that Sjava was keen to leave Ambitiouz.
Ambitiouz has a reputation as one of the worst labels in the industry.
Not even handing out food parcels to the less fortunate last month could help clean it up its image.
Emtee, who left Ambitiouz last year, said he's still trying to get his multiple awards back from them.
