Organisers of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival have announced that singer Sjava has been dropped from their concert set to take place later this month
This in light of recent allegations and charges of rape made against him by fellow singer Lady Zamar.
The statement read; "Due to the seriousness of the allegations levelled against Sjava, the Management of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival has withdrawn Sjava’s performance from the CTIJF 2020 line up."
The announcement saw Sjava's name trend once again on Twitter.
Some die-hard fans vowed to stand by their idol, whilst some planned to boycott the concert itself!
A lot more questioned why the concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' was not applied to the incident;
On the flipside, a few tweeps hailed the decision as 'progressive' and thanked the organisers for taking a stand.
Do you think concert organisers made the right decision in dropping Sjava?
