It seems Sjava can't quite shake off the acting bug. It has been reported that the musician will be joining Uzalo.
The BET Award winner will be playing the character of Jombigazi, a hitman linked to Nkunzi and Mageda.
The announcement was made by entertainment blogger Phil Mphela on his social media page. According to Mphela, Sjava is already on set filming.
Sjava is no stranger to acting, the musician once starred on SABC 1's drama Zone 14 - where he played the character of a soccer player.
Social media users had mixed reactions to the announcement. Twitter user Zintle_Gqodo said:
"He is going back to acting"
"Stereotyping which promotes tribalism should be shunned in South Africa"
"Uzalo needs new writers, it has potential to be dope #MyOpinion"
"I bet they give him a role where he needs to shave that beard and hair"
"Is he gonna steal cars too?"
"Seems like the whole Lady Zamar saga didn't affect his career. The bro is moving places"

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Moonchild Sanelly, like many avid Mzansi soapie viewers, is tired of the big build-up served at the end of each episode just to dish you half a scoop in the next.
Taking to social media to air her views, Moonchild Sanelly expressed how The River leaves her with a saucy ending that is never followed up with the expected drama in the next episode. Moonchild Sanelly has called on The River scriptwriters to up their game because there is nothing wrong with the actors so it has to be there fault.
"#TheRiver1Magic writers treat every episode ending with drama and we’re ready, next episode... no continuity It’s like watching black mirror!!! Please get new writers who can maintain! The actors are carrying it! The writers are slacking! How do we end an episode and not continue?!"
