Sjava’s Isibuko breaks the internet

Mzansi musician Sjava, real name Jabulani Hadebe, topped the trends list with the release of his 18-track album, Isibuko. Translated as ‘Mirror’, Sjava features artists such as former Ambitiouz Entertainment label mates Emtee and Saudi, as well as his record label signee 1020 Cartel’s Anzo and many others.


When the album was released on Friday, it occupied the Spotify Africa charts.

In a press statement, Sjava speaks on Isibuko and like a mirror, he said it reflects on his past and the journey he undertook as a musician.

“This album is a reflection of my journey over the last few years and speaks to my experiences and growth as a person and as a musician. Musically it is a continuation of the process that began with the Umsebenzi EP/Deluxe, and I hope my supporters enjoy the body of work.

“I know it’s been a while, but I trust that the album will be worth the wait. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the last eight years of my career, and I look forward to continuing this musical journey together in the future,” she said.

Mzansi cannot stop raving about the album and how Sjava delved into his soft side and gave a raw performance.

Even his former record label Ambitiouz Entertainment gave Sjava his flowers and encouraged people to go and stream the album.
