For a rather long time SA Hip Hop has been getting a number of representatives at the BET Awards but had never broken the Nigerians winning streak.
Sjava has just become the first SA Hip Hop artist to ever walk away as a winner at the BET Awards after bagging the award for the Viewers’ Choice Best International Act award. This impressed a lot of the Hip Hop artists who congratulated the rapper on his win which was seen by most as a win for SA Hip Hop.
“You have always been one of the most talented & humble people in the game. Seeing you win this makes my heart SO happy!! Congratulations
@Sjava_ATM!! You represent your people so well & we are so proud of you,” tweeted Moozlie congratulating Sjava on his win. Check out some of the reactions below.
