“Jerusalema” is becoming Limpopo artiste Master KG’s biggest hit yet. According to famous South African disc jockey Black Coffee, there is massive request for the song in Switzerland.
He made this known in a recent tweet showing partygoers in a club in the country. One of the partygoers had a phone with the song playing. The atmosphere was one of joie de vivre, undeniably convivial.
“Jerusalema” failed to earn a nomination in this year’s South Africa Music Awards (SAMA), provoking outrage from the RainbowNation. The argument has been that if there was any song that ought to have been nominated for a SAMA, it ought to be Master KG’s song, which is not only a hit in South Africa but other countries around the world, most recently Switzerland.
Although his global hit failed to earn him a nomination, Master KG has congratulated those who made the list, while wishing himself sunnier days in his music career.Another artiste who failed to earn a nomination is Makhadzi.
By the way, the success of “Jerusalema” has provoked aremix featuring Nigeria’s afrobeat star Burna Boy. But the remix apparently lacks the global charm of the original.
