Master KG continues to hit impressive milestones in the year of 2020. The latest one being that, as an artist, he accumulated a whole 140 million streams on Spotify this year.
The South African superstar took to social media to show how grateful he was to all those who supported him and streamed his work on the platform in order to get him to the huge number.
Master KG retweeted part of the Spotify statistics and added a caption that said:
“It's been a great year. Managed to do 143 million streams on Spotify. Big thanks to everyone who made this possible".
He then corrected to 140 million after he realised his typo and said:
"The excitement is just too much."
Spotify added more statistics that showed the reach the Limpopo-born artist and his hit song Jerusalema, which features local vocalist Nomcebo Zikode, had in 2020.
The 140 million streams were from 18.5 million listeners and the song was listened to over a period of 9.6 million hours across 92 countries.
The streaming service sends yearly summaries to its users containing each person's most-listened-to songs and artists. It's become common practice for Spotify users to screenshot and post their summaries to social media to compare theirs with others' results.
Many of Master KG's fans did exactly that in order to show the artist the small ways in which they contributed to his milestone. Fans responded to his tweet with screenshots of their summaries and congratulated KG on his good news.
