Sjava opens up on why he chose music over soccer

Sjava who has achieved much success in the music industry and has received international recognition speaks of how he could have become a footballer instead a singer.

During an interview with TshishaLIVE, Sjava revealed:

“I’ve always known that it would be soccer or music for me. Even here, I used to play for Hillbrow Action Killers. Our coach was Bab’ Khuzwayo. I played soccer and even went to Wits and trained there. I played for a team in Sandalwood as well. Growing up my time was taken up by either soccer or music.”

“First of all, I was not disciplined enough for soccer. For one, I would always get red cards because of fighting… I was very bad. I didn’t like gym as well, in terms of soccer I really wasn’t as disciplined as I should have been. It got to a point where I just went back to music because music was my first love. Even acting couldn’t replace music. I love acting and soccer but music was a calling I had to heed.”

However, Sjava’s song, Umama is currently topping and it’s acquired 2 million views on Youtube.
