- Mzansi musician and rapper Sjava has shown once again that he is truly one of a kind
- The talented local musician has found a way to include deaf people in enjoying his music
- Indlalifa has officially introduced sign language in all his music videos
Sjava has shared how he’s making his music more accessible to deaf people. The musician took to social media to share that his music videos will have sign language interpretation from now on.
The move was inspired by Sjava wanting deaf people to also get a chance to appreciate his craft.
His post read:
“Good morning I have always wanted to do this it’s finally happening going forward all my music videos will include sign language for deaf people to understand as well what I am saying in my music.”
His brilliant move was well-received by social media users, who praised him for his inclusive thinking. Twitter user Thembalethu_00 said:
“He actually wants to impart information (the message behind his songs) to deaf people.. it's actually not about the beats”
“Wena bafo you're too much.. Wenza kakhulu. Can't wait to see the music video.”
“YesSir really appreciate this move , God bless you for catering for the hearing impaired people #specialneeds #disability is not an inability”
“That's some new vision my brother. You taking care of the culture, introducing this to Sony entertainment should be your next move”
“This is amazing. There's so much inclusivity & versatility in your craft. You’re incredible”
“Broooooo this is a golden idea damn , this could be international”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Sjava recently dropped his EP, Umsebenzi, and is now celebrating a big win. The EP has now reached a total of one million streams and he has done the unthinkable after he decided to become an independent artist.
Sjava left the record label Ambitiouz Entertainment to move onto greener pastures and it seems like it is working for him. The BET award-winning artist hasn't had the best year as he had a number of personal affairs interfering with his career.
His passion for music kept him going and he released Umsebenzi, the second project out of his record label, Cartel 1020. His first project was Isambulo, which was complied by upcoming artists that he signed to his record label along with record producer, Ruff.
Sjava released Umsebenzi on 4 December without doing any prior promotional work but it has quickly become one of his most iconic projects.
He took to social media to give thanks for how well his EP is doing. Sjava is celebrating a big win that many artists struggle to achieve as independent artists.
"Siyabonga ngokuhlonipha umsebenzi," he wrote on social media, which means: "Thank you for respecting my work."
