“Skhuva Story telling is out of these world...He takes you all the Journey and you can feel he knows what he's talking about...Guys let's respect Skhuva.”
“Sjava is simply out of this world.. Let's not lie to each other. This guy is also versatile. He can rap, he can go soul, he can go Mas'kandi. He's just super talented.”
“The two guys who just released an album together know how to tell any kasi story in any song, not taking anything away from Sjava and Big Zulu but Duncan and Zakwe spin that gusheshe with you in it saying ishaye in a song.”
“Leave this to Sjava. Let's not start comparing Sjava_atm is the king.”
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.”
“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.”
