Master KG won the “Best African Act” Award at the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards for his hit song Jerusalema last night.
South Africa (09 November 2020) – Master KG’s song Jerusalema has become a global dancing sensation! 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 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.
The song has earned the proudly South African artist an international nomination for the “Best African Act” Award by the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards. The award ceremony took place on the 8th of November at 9 pm CAT on DSTV’s MTV and MTV Base channels.
Master KG earned himself the award!!! Take a look at his acceptance speech below.
“I would love to thank my sister Nomcebo, my team Open Mic Productions, and everyone who has supported Master KG, thank you so much.
“To all my fans all over the world, without you this would have not been possible,”
