- Master KG scooped the SABC Summer Song 2018 award
- He achieved another accolade in Ghana at the Afrima Awards
- The artist started off making music in 2013 and only saw a fraction of his earnings
2018 has been an extremely successful year for Master KG.
The 22-year-old musician rounded off the year by scooping the prestigious SABC Summer Song 2018 award.
A brand new Kia car and a R100 000 cash prize accompanied the title.
Hailing from Calais in Limpopo, he remains determined to stay grounded in spite of his recent success.
Master KG revealed that he is no stranger to poverty and it serves as extra motivation to live and spend money responsibly.
A sign of his humility is that he intends to donate R25 000 of his winnings to charity.
Sowetan Live reported that the artist doesn’t indulge in alcohol, smoking or partying.
He says, "I don't have a girlfriend. I'm always with majita that I grew up with. We go to parks and resorts and have a good time.”
Master KG’s hit song, Skeleton Move, gave him plenty of reason to celebrate though.
The house track earned him the Best Dance award at the Limpopo Music Awards.
The song proved its popularity on the rest of the continent as it won another award at the Afrima Awards held in Ghana.
However, things weren’t this rosy a few years ago when he started making music in 2013.
Master KG initially played at taverns and only received 20% of the proceeds.
