As competitive as it has come to, the South African music industry keeps on climbing the heights even abroad.
The IMPILO hit maker SJAVA who over the weekend was crowned as the BEST AFRICAN ACT in a viewer’s choice category by the BET AWARDS held in LOS ANGELES on Sunday evening.
His music speaks to the masses and is relevant across all cultures and backgrounds, his enormous voice catches you from afar more especially when he says “ Sekungaze kuf’ umuntu” – which is a song that is sang to point out and to campaign against women abuse in the country. Sjava beats the legendary Cassper Nyovest in this category as well as the most loved Nigerian super star Davido and others.
Having our music seen at such international stages as the BETs is overall proving to us all that SA artists have taken the right direction on ensuring quality and originality is preserved in every song produced. Social media is still in awe of this accolade which the king has added for the NATION and we all wish him the best of luck in the future, hoping that this award will stand as a notion that we still more of such meaningful music.
