Lady Zamar accused her former lover, Sjava of abuse on Tuesday. 

Zamar confirmed on Twitter that she dated Sjava and that she did not know he was married. 

This comes after Sjava’s sold-out concert over the weekend, "One Night With Sjava", where he introduced his wife to the crowd. 

Social media users and fans of both Zamar and Sjava started asking how it was possible for him to be married when the couple recently split.

 This caused Zamar to address the questions on Twitter. 

The "Collide" hitmaker started a thread by saying, “I’m only responding coz I’m exhausted..I’ve moved on Loooong ago and yet I’m still dragged into that messy man’s life. What must I do to get you guys to stop with the tags and mentions?”

She then revealed that she was abused verbally and once sexually.


She also said that she asked him if he was married but that he always said he was not.


Zamar also said that she has been invited by Sjava to perform at his concert, something she found disrespectful. 

“Surprising that I was invited to perform at this event on Sunday where the wife was coming.. The disrespect”, she said. 

 Zamar, whose real name is Yamikani Janet Banda, ended the thread by saying that she forgave Sjava for her own sake after going to therapy. “We don’t talk and I honestly forgave him coz my gosh I’d die if I didn’t”.

She also said that she knows some people won’t believe her.

Many social media users attacked Zamar and labelled her dramatic and a liar. 

Why come out now?...on the weekend he just sold out concert & now here you are claiming abuse! Just get over it & focus on your music & that dude you posted the other! Move on he's married so what?

Metro FM DJ and television presenter Lerato Kganyago came to the star’s defence.

IOL Entertainment was stonewalled when we attempted to get comment from Sjava's public relations team.
