After recently winning a Black Entertainment Television(BET) award and dropping his new project Umphako last month, Sjava headed out to New York and had an in-depth interview with hip hop DJ Ebro on his Hot 97 show, Ebro In The Morning.
During the interview, Sjava spoke about the possibility of resurrecting his acting career by being a part of the next Shaka Zulu film; the importance of pioneering an African sound, and why he encompasses Zulu in his music. The interview quickly took a more serious turn as Ebro asked him about the political climate in South Africa following the racial divides created by the former apartheid government and his opinions on land reform in the country.
Sjava also spoke about his dissatisfaction with how local acts are treated when US acts headline shows in South Africa. Make sure to peep the conversation and add your input:
