Sjava plans to depart Ambitiouz Entertainment


SA award-winning star, Sjava has been reported to be planning his departure from Ambitiouz Entertainment record label.

Just like Emtee, Gigi Lamayne, Fifi ooper, A-Reece and Amanda Black who left the label unhappy, Sjava is also “extremely unhappy” with the label.

Sjava’s new decision was confirmed by an industry insider.

However, the record label boss Kgosi Mahumapelo told Sowetan that the singer still has an active signed deal with the label, which will last a few more years, hence, the impossibility of his plans.

“An artist or label cannot opt to renew a contract that is still active and will be for a few years to come.

“All three contracts are active and Ambitiouz have not requested the artist to renew any,” Mahumapelo said.

He said the reason why Sjava is unhappy with Ambitiouz is over not receiving a cent from his feature on the Black Panther soundtrack in 2018.

“Ambitiouz have not received any form of payment from the Black Panther project to date and efforts have been made to claim revenues from the project, including hiring international royalty specialists to assist in this regards,” Mahumapelo said.

Meanwhile, months ago, Sjava hints on being tired of the label and lots of his fans got worried, urging him to exit, just like Emtee.
