Master KG Bags An Award From The Global Music Awards Africa! Our very own musician and record producer has won an award from the prestigious event. The GMAA official website states that this event seeks to showcase African talent and, “… promises to place an incredible standard in this year’s maiden edition 2021.” We are delighted to hear that Master KG has taken the biggest one yet!
KG has definitely been caught up in a whirlwind of awards this past couple of months. His most recent is a reminder that he still has the entire world wrapped around his finger because of Jerusalema, which is currently sitting at over 382 million views on YouTube and 186 million streams on Spotify! So it is only fitting that he is the winner for The Global Record of the Year.
The hit maker also recently announced that Jerusalema went x3 platinum in Italy and that he won the prestigious African Artiste Recognition from The Headies Awards in Nigeria. KG also bagged a handful of nominations including one from the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for Fav Global Music Star and Artist of the Year from the MTV Africa Music Awards. The list goes on!
KG’s shelf is also heavy with Musician of the Year from GQ South Africa’s Men of the Year Awards and Best International Song for the NRJ Music Awards (Paris Edition) from 2020 yet, he is presently reeling in over 5.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Impressive is an understatement; the smash hit is definitely for the history books!
The #JerusalemaDanceChallenge was an unforgettable challenge that either had us smiling, laughing until we cry or really impressed by people’s creativity. Even though there is an abundance of remixes, we are happy to see that people still create their own version of the lyrics. KG also can’t get enough!
