A South African gospel song by Master KG has become a global sensation and has now been nominated for five awards by the African Muzik Magazine Awards.


Limpopo, South Africa (21 September 2020) – Master KG’s song Jerusalema has become a global dancing challenge. Every week, we see a new video trending online of a group dancing to the now smash hit. The song first premiered on YouTube in December 2019.

Master KG is a 24-year-old rising star who comes from Calais Village, Limpopo. He had big dreams for his career but never imagined it would take off so massively because of one single song. Jerusalema is being called the song of lockdown.

It was the top song on Apple for a few weeks and has now landed Master KG with five award nominations for the African Muzik Magazine Awards (Afrimma). The five nominations have already meant that Master KG is the leading nominee for the awards.

He is nominated for the following awards:

  • Best Male Southern Africa.
  • Afrimma Video of the Year.
  • Song of the Year.
  • Best Collaboration.
  • Artist of the Year.

To be honest, the unity this song has created, not just in South Africa, but on a global scale, Master KG deserves every accolade that comes his way. The YouTube video more than 147 million views, an incredible accomplishment! It is also the number 1 most Shazamed song in the world!
