He claims that he is currently not working because of these allegations and has been losing many gigs because it has been dragging for more than a year now.

"The reason for doing this video is because I want to clear the air on the ongoing rumours and speculations with everything going on in my life. The reason I have been silent was because we are not allowed to speak about it as it is an ongoing case," he started off the video.

Opening up on his relationship with the Collide hitmaker, he said she knew that he had a woman in his life but she agreed to continue dating him until it came to a point where she wanted him to chose. Sjava reveals he never had time for her hence the frustration and feelings of neglect that made her feel unloved.

"When we started dating in 2017 I told her I have a girlfriend and she understood that so we continued our relationship. However as time went on she changed and gave me an ultimatum to chose between her and my girlfriend. In our relationship a lot happened that left her unhappy as I was well invested in my music and neglecting her in the process," he opened up.

Another startling revelation is that he is not married as it was claimed by his own mother and rubbishes the headlines which spoke of him fathering a child he is not supporting.

"I hear the rumours of me being a married man, I am not married and I saw the headlines of me not paying child support, I do not have a child," he shut down those rumours.

The events that transpired at Sun Arena left her humiliated, disrespected and embarrassed as people called her names. The record label boss apologises for such humiliation as he believes it put a strain in their relationship, "I take the blame and I apologise for that and not loving you the way you wanted to."   

He is against rape and women abuse or abuse of all forms, it baffles him that he would be categorized under those men who are abusers because he speaks about it a lot through his music.

He unreservedly denies raping Lady Zamar and stands by his word. He says he cannot support his family now because he is losing gigs and work all because of this ongoing case that is yet to be solved.

He has tried getting to the bottom of the matter by contacting the police as well as Zamar's team but it continuously gets dragged.
