Master KG and Nomcebo were thrilled about the achievement. The duo have been dominating the news lately as their special song continues to take over the airwaves worldwide.
The Limpopo muso said:
“It is a dream come true for ‘Jerusalema' to be Top 4 on the Shazam global chart. I have always adored other artists being in the chart and now it is my turn... really exciting moments. If it was not for Shazam, I don't think people around the world will easily discover my songs."
Jerusalema has charted in 26 different countries with users in France Shazaming the song the most.
Master KG also told Apple Music that his hometown in Limpopo is super proud of him.
"It was a big thing for the province. Because Limpopo, in terms of the music, we never had that thing of dominating the countries of Africa. But ever since I came and the other guys came, it's been a game-changer."
Speaking to Briefly.co.za, the vocalist on the song, Nomcebo Zikode, said:
“Looking at the current global crisis, Jerusalema has brought hope for millions of people worldwide. It has become a beacon of hope to keep everyone cheered up even in such times of hardships that we are facing as a global community.”
In similar news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Master KG is riding a wave of success with his song becoming a worldwide hit after years of hard work and perfecting his craft. The star, who is known to say "Wanitwa mos" on every track, has explained why he won't stop using the catchphrase.
Master KG said, although he knows it irritates some people, the phrase is his signature on every song and it works for him.
He also explained why he believes his song, Jerusalema, is a hit across the world even though it's sung in an indigenous language. The star said music is a universal language that speaks to the soul.
"Music doesn't need a visa to travel."
