Master KG has been nominated for the “Best African Act” Award by the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards for his hit song Jerusalema and he needs our votes!


South Africa (27 October 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 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 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.

Now, 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 is on the 8th of November at 9 pm CAT on DSTV’s MTV and MTV Base channels.

Fellow South African artists Kabza de Small and DJ Maphorisa have also received a nomination for the “Best African Act” Award. You can make your vote here.

The music video, which we mentioned premiered on YouTube in December 2019, has since gone on to hit 200 million views! It continues to spread across the world and with it, bringing unity and connection during the global pandemic!

Best of luck for the awards Master KG! We will be holding thumbs and should you win, will be sure to share the good news with our readers.
