Sjava and Lady Zamar have been trending on social media after it was revealed that the rape case against him was dismissed in court. Since then, social media users have weighed in on the situation and #LadyZamarMustFall trended online.
The hashtag involved heated debate as some accused the singer of being a scorned ex while others defended her.

"Lets all understand and agree that failing to prove that you were raped doesn't mean that you were not. #LadyZamarMustFall"
"When a man no longer wants to be in a relationship with you, falsely accusing him of rape will never change that. This is something that we need to understand as women. MOVE ON!!!! #ladyzamarmustfall"

"I don't know why women are standing up for Lady Zamar because it's women like her who give real rape victims and real GBV victims a hard time in the justice system. #ladyzamarmustfall down!"
