Mzansi musician Sjava surprised his fans by dropping a four-track EP at midnight on Friday, 4 December. The KZN artist dropped the project just days after celebrating his 36th birthday. The EP, titled Umsebenzi, has been well-received by fans who were dying for new material from him.
The title Umsebenzi has a double meaning, it can be directly translated to mean work or it can refer to a Zulu ritual of slaughtering an animal for the ancestors.
Taking to social media, Sjava announced the album at midnight by saying:
"Nawu Umsebenzi, I hope you enjoy it."
The reaction to the EP has been positive. Twitter user lenard_mazibe said:
"#UmsebenziEP when Sjava drops. Just know it's classic, this man DON'T miss bro. All his projects will be played in 100 years to come."
"Sjava just blessed us #UmsebenziEP. Keep winning my King."
"Sjava’s music takes you to a certain place... I’m truly lost for words."
"Sjava is a brilliant artist: lyricist (memorable and profound lyrics), great production and authentic. The music is sonically (vibration of the sound) good."
"Sjava's songs always have that spirituality source and the top deck of love"
