Master KG has paid homage to his home province of Limpopo for their support over the past few years. The fact that the musician's song Jerusalema has become a global dance groove sensation is awesome but Master KG has not turned his back on the people who supported him when he was still an upcoming artist.
The star, whose real name is Kgaugelo Moagi, was hosted by MEC Thandi Moraka at the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture headquarters in Polokwane.
After the province shared Master KG's good news on Twitter, tweeps shared mixed reactions to the post. Most of them dragged the province for the recent housing scandal involving shacks worth R2.4 million.
"Next thing you'll saying you didn't know he was actually Master KG in the newspapers, like you did with those shameful Mkhukhus you gave to people. You can't be trusted wena."
"Mr Mathabatha will go down in the history books of this country as the first politician to cut ribbons on shacks."
"Corrupt ANC government capitalising on the success of the young man and they didn't support him till the world recognised him."
"What support? How many artist who are dying of hunger in your province. They don't support them but they are quick to claim them once they start shining. Liars."

Bring back our pride and glory! Often videos are removed from YouTube for some legal reason, but there really was no logical explanation for as to why this music video was removed, especially after all the positivity the track has broth to the world during such a glum time.
The music video just randomly disappeared off of YouTube and fans did not know what was going on. Social media blew up as fans demanded the music video be put back where it was found.
Seeing the commotion, Master KG took to social media to let fans know that it was nothing more than a technical error and that the music video would be back soon.
