Sjava has released the Umsebenzi Gold Deluxe edition EP, in light of the December 2020 EP being certified gold this past week.
Sjava took to Instagram on Thursday, 30 September 2021, to celebrate the milestone his December 2020 EP, Umsebenzi, achieved. The EP was a milestone when he released it, as it came after his past relationship with Lady Zamar and the fallout as a result of the demise of the relationship. Moreover, the EP was the first independent release by Sjava under his co-owned record label, 1020 Cartel.
Hence, he stated, “Sanibonani sekuhambe kwaze kwafika la (Greetings, it has been a long while coming but) thank you so much for the love and support, Umsebenzi, the EP went Gold (and) to celebrate that, we decided to add five songs dropping at midnight (Friday, 1 October 2021).”
The new additional singles include Ushevu, featuring Ndabo Zulu; Luhle Ngani; Edokodweni; Balele, featuring Ami Faku; and Umoya. The additional songs showcase the growth in musicality and messaging by Sjava, as he can now refer back to relationships without them being publicly rehashed.
The EP is available for purchase on Apple Music.
