Sjava’s latest album, Isibuko, is still gaining numbers on streaming sites, with over 20 million streams recently… it’s safe to call the album the singer’s huge comeback after a break following his alleged rape crisis with ex-girlfriend Lady Zama.
Sjava had initially published a photo of a combination of the streams he received across streaming sites on his Instagram feed, and of course, the post shows that the album was well received.
The Zulu singer’s fans and followers took to the comment section to share their appreciation for the singer.
One Instagram user wrote, “Not like the trendy “hot sound nonsense being pushed to us… high quality compositions only from this man. A royal musician indeed.”
In less than seven days after its release, the album received over 7.7 million streams across digital streaming services.
Sjava expressed gratitude to his supporters after the release of the 18-track album.

In his most recent piece of work, the artist reflected on his life’s path, which he said was inspired by a mirror he bought at a shop that broke minutes later.
“As a person, you can get to a point of hating yourself. When you look at things like depression and mental health, it’s about you fighting what is happening in your head and the way you see things, but when someone looks at you, they can’t see it.
“It can happen that you look at yourself as a person and hate yourself, and there was a time where I felt like that, where I felt like what I am doing is ruining myself, being famous and not having privacy.
“There was just so much to a point where I felt like if I did not do this thing I would have lived a better life,” he said.
