"Sjava was wrongfully accused by Lady Zamar and they tarnished the man's reputation and cancelled all bookings, yet missy here is leaving her best life."

"Dear @ShowmaxOnline if Kelly Khumalo was a man, would you have reacted the same way? Your mother Company Removed Sjava for rumours and tabloid stuff, not evidence let in court."

@TheSpektatah noted:

Sjava was cancelled and he won the case, yet we still hear Lady Zamar on the Radio who falsely accused him of rape and aggravated assault. Radio stations, TV shows and Event organizers need to cancel Kelly Khumalo and her Sister. This cancel culture is a scam.
