Master KG's first Shazam in South Africa was in February 2018, with his hit song β€œSkeleton Move”. Since then, he has been Shazamed across the world and, to date, he has been most-Shazamed in South Africa, Nigeria, France, Italy and Zambia for his global hit "Jerusalema" featuring Nomcebo Zikode on vocals.

Just two months ago, their hit song was on the Top 4 of the Global Top 200 list and since then has been doing better every week, steadily occupying first place for a couple of weeks.

It came as no surprise when Master KG Tweeted in celebration that the song is still chilling at the Number 1 spot. The song is just unstoppable, "Still chilling there on no 1" he Tweeted in delight. The song is loved both locally and abroad, from local celebrities to even our South African President, the Honourable Cyril Ramaphosa.

During President Cyril Ramaphosa's lockdown regulations national address, which saw the country progress to alert level one, starting on Sunday the 20th of September 2020, the President endorsed the Jerusalema Challenge and called on everyone to participate during Heritage Day.

β€œI urge everyone to use this public holiday as family time, to reflect on the difficult journey we have all traveled, to remember those who have lost their lives, and to quietly rejoice the remarkable and diverse heritage of our nation,”
β€œAnd there can be no better way to celebrate of our South African-ness than joining the global phenomenon that is  spreading across the world and that is the Jerusalema dance challenge. The Jerusalema song that I love so much So I urge all of you to take up this challenge on Heritage Day and show the world what we are capable of our perfomers  have demonstrated to the world  that we've got good music and  good dance and good move, so quietly let's celebrate our heritage,"

2020 is arguably the best year of Master KG's career, he has been receiving all the flowers, from international superstars like Janet Jackson, Chance The Rapper and Christiano Ronaldo too. His song has played in multiple countries across the world and even went platinum in Italy.

Within a month, the DJ/producer has even bought himself two brand new cars, first, he copped himself a pricey BMW 3 Series. Then most recently, he allegedly copped himself a Ferrari sportscar worth millions. If that doesn't mean his bank account is getting fatter and fatter, we don't know what is.

We look forward to seeing his song maintain the number one spot for many more weeks to come and hopefully reaching 200 million views soon.
