Award winning recording artist Sjava has reached out to Idols SA contestant Yanga after he was impressed with her rendition of his song, Impilo.
Last week, the sensational Idols hopeful Sobetwa Yanga gave a sizzling performance and the BET award winner was impressed with the rendition and tweeted that he is ready to work with her, whether she wins or loses.
“This Is Amazing @SobetwaYanga ipeni lami li ready sengiyozwa ngawe and good luck for the show whether you win or loose (sic)” – he tweeted.
Yanga’s rendition of Sjava’s song was just as emotionally charged as the original. She gives tribute to women who were done wrong at the hands of the men that they trusted. These include Sarah Baartman, Reeva Steenkamp, Karabo Mokoena and Cheryl Zondi.
According to Zkhiphani, Impilo is taken off his album Isina Muva, the gold version. It is one of the 3 songs added to celebrate the album reaching gold status. The song brings awareness to the recent surge of femicide in the country over the last few years. Sjava whose real name is Jabulani Hadebe is pleading with the men in society to protect our women and take their cries of help into account.
