Last month Master KG announced that his hit song ‘Jerusalema has gone three times platinum. He also took to Twitter to announce that the song has over a billion streams on Tik Tok.

“’ Jerusalema’’ Has Over A Billion Views On Tik Tok Alone Damm Bro This Song Doesn't Wanna Stop!!!!! THIS is Freaking Amazing!” he tweeted.
This is good news for Master Kg and many other musicians who have their music streamed on Tik Tok following the recent news reported by the Business Insider that CEO of Capasso Wiseman Ngubo has announced that Tik Tok has reached an agreement with the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) to pay Mzansi artists royalties every time their music is used on Tik Tok.

“We are happy to have reached an agreement with TikTok in order to ensure that pan African songwriters are taken care of on the platform. With the increasing spotlight on African music, more African songwriters are poised to reach global superstar status and TikTok will play a major role in showcasing their talents to the world,” said Wiseman.

He said royalties will be calculated on a pro-rata share basis: “Streaming royalty calculations are not based on a fixed rate per stream, rather they are based on what is termed a pro rata share of the available pool. This means, in essence, royalties are determined by one’s market share, as determined by usage, in each period.”
