Local rapper Sjava was featured on the COLORSxSTUDIOS YouTube channel on Monday, and paid tribute to his mother by performing "Umama".
The insightful production coupled with Sjava’s endearing tones and poignant lyricism serve as a beacon of light as he expresses his love for his mother with words of endearment.
In the context of an increasingly fragmented and saturated scene COLORS seeks to provide clarity and calm, offering a minimalistic stage to shine a spotlight on the artists and give them the opportunity to present their music without distraction. It’s all colors, no genres.
Sjava delivers a deeply personal and heartfelt tribute to his mother with ‘Umama’ (produced by Mace), taken from his sophomore album ‘’Umqhele’ - which means “warrior’s headband” in isiZulu. He’s seen adorning the traditional accessory in his COLORS performance, as well as when he accepted his 2018 BET Viewer’s Choice Award for Best International Act.
