Sjava was spotted among the Amabutho who were at KwaNongoma for the memorial service of His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini.
Eagle-eyed social media users spotted the musician proudly marching towards the palace to honour the fallen king.
Many were impressed by how committed he was to his culture while others expressed concern that the Star was seen without a mask on several occasions.
Twitter user Fanyanamasilo said:
“Great to see @Sjava_atm attending the Kings Memorial service.”
“Why are they not wearing masks?”
“The standard of attitude and Zulu pride portrayed by @Sjava_atm is impressive. While some are in VVIP, he's there rejoicing naMabutho edaweni yangakubo. Uthando lemvelaphi yakini.”
“Sjava is a man of his culture.”
“Sjava loves his culture and he's not ashamed of being a rooted Zulu man.”
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that 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.”
