Master KG’s spellbinding “Jerusalema” has become a global phenomenon. Having inspired people on every continent to share their videos of its irresistible dance (#JerusalemaDanceChallenge), the track keeps hitting landmark after landmark while earning famous fans such as Janet Jackson, Cristiano Ronaldo and even a co-sign from the President of South Africa.
“Jerusalema” continues to expand its huge impact, most recently with a remix which added the GRAMMY-nominated Afro-fusion icon Burna Boy alongside the original featured vocalist Nomcebo. Now the remix is boosted by the launch of its official video, which boasts a joyous, high energy performance from Burna Boy to elevate its feel-good vibe.
It only takes one listen to discover why “Jerusalama” has exploded. From its sun-kissed beat to the sweet vocals from Nomcebo, it’s an immediately uplifting antidote to the challenging times we’re experiencing. Recorded in the Zulu language, it translates as a gospel-style message: “Jerusalema is my home / Guard me, walk with me / Don’t leave me here.”
Raised in Calais in the northern South African province of Limpopo, Master KG first came to attention with his 2018 track ‘Skeleton Move’. It set him on course to win Best Artiste, Duo or Group In African Electro at the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA); the SABC Summer Song; Best Dance Song at the Limpopo Music Awards; and Best Male Artist South African at the African Muzik Magazine Awards 2019.
