Black Twitter Divided Over Jazz Festival Pulling Sjava Off Their Lineup! Earlier this week, the Cape Town Jazz Festival issued a statement on social media announcing that they were removing Sjava from their lineup due to rape accusations by his ex, singer Lady Zamar.
The allegations were made late last year and now recently surfaced with reports Lady Zamar ha opened a rape case against Sjava. Sjava later issued a statement saying he did not rape Lady Zamar. Whilst for now it’s her word against his, fans of both stars have taken to twitter to express their feelings on how the case has affected both Sjava and Lady Zamar
Sjava’s fans believe in innocent until proven guilty whilst Lady Zamar has her fans and some celebs standing by her and believing that it happened to her. “Rea leboga ,thank you so much capetown jazz festival organizers”, one tweep shared her thoughts. “This is really unfair lady zamar is now ruining sjava’s career”, a Sjava’s fan tweeted.
It also brought the attention as to why the festival organizers waited this long to pull the plug on Sjava when they have sold many tickets and gained publicity for the event with the rapper. Check out some of the reactions below.

Oksalayo we don't believe #LadyZamar #Sjava.
This girls timing is always about seeing a nigga suffer. #Sjava was about to perform at the Afro-Punk and went out to make noise about rape
Now Jazz Festival she opens a case and they cancel Sjava. We see you Zamar

Sjava ‘s right as a citizen has been violated;He is innocent until proven guilty!CT Jazz has made its decision on the assumption that Lady Zamar is telling the truth insinuating not only Sjava is a rapist and liar as well.I hope he sues for loss of income when he clears his name!

There was no need for the CT jazz festival to remove Sjava over allegations,equally there is no need for Sjava fans to insult Lady Zama because of these allegations,let courts decide and we will talk about the court verdict,thank you
