Abangani (feat. Emtee & Saudí)
On this four-track suite, Sjava asserts himself as an empathetic worker’s champion. “Abangani” finds him and Ambitiouz Entertainment labelmates Emtee and Saudi describing life struggles over a deep, ‘70s-inspired soul cut. “But I made it anyway,” harmonises Sjava, who often flips between Zulu and English lyrics. He slowly unravels before his lover on the floating R&B of “Confession”, but he picks up the pace on “Intombi” and its strutting, electronic funk rhythm. On the closer, “Iqhawe”, he’s a motivational speaker, offering pastoral epiphanies about the selves we reflect to others.
