“Congrats @MasterKGsa! #Jerusalema is now the most Shazamed song in the world…”
In an interview Master, Kg stated that while releasing the song, he never thought it could be a big hit. Though people confuse the song with being secular, he has made it clear it is an upbeat gospel-influenced house song.
Jerusalem has been jammed by many including football megastar Christiano Ronaldo, American singer Janet Jackson and many more.
CONGRATULATIONS MASTER KG AND NOMCEBO!
