‘Sjava writes beautiful songs about love, family, Blackness. He also wrote a song that romanticizes rape’
EBNewsDaily reported this week that musician Lady Zamar has a rape case opened against the BET award winner Sjava.
In a case that is handled by the Thohoyandou correctional services, It was alleged that Sjava raped his former girlfriend Lady Zamar during a Royal Garden event in Limpopo back in 2017.
Meanwhile, different opinions were raised on the matter, Naledi Chirwa, a member of EFF in parliament raised that Sjava has a song that romanticizes rape.
“Men are pressed that all it takes to end up with a rape case is an ignored ‘no’,” wrote Chirwa on her Twitter page.
“They’re pressed because they have ignored a no before. They’re pressed that now even old girlfriends are able to find courage and come out about rapes that happened in the past. Defence mode,”.
Chirwa announced her support for Lady Zamar.
Sjava has dismissed the allegations of rape this week in a statement saying his legal team is following the matter.
