Master KG's Jerusalema is on a winning streak. The hit song has now gone platinum in Italy. This amazing accomplishment is one of many wins that the song has recorded since its release.
The excited Master KG took to Twitter to celebrate the song's latest achievement.
Going platinum in Europe is no small task, even achieving that status in Mzansi is extremely difficult, so this achievement is definitely a big deal.
The tweet was written in Italian and is translated to:
"Everyone dances Jerusalema 9 million posts on Instagram 100 million views on YouTube 130 million contents on TikTok are just some of the numbers of the success of the summer hit which today wins the Platinum certification #Fimiaward"
Social media users congratulated the artist for the massive accomplishment. Here are some of the reactions:
Twitter user EgoTGlobal said:
"They gave us coronavirus. We gave them Master KG in exchange."
"At this rate, you'll be South Africa's greatest export. Wanitwa mos!"
"Evidently being snubbed for a SAMA award was the best injustice to ever happen to you... let em open the border for you and go cash up on that international circuit. Well done chief."
"Congratulations, I hope you'll get some Euro ching ching."
