Master KG Tells Apple Music About Being This Week’s Cover Star

Master KG Tells Apple Music About His Hometown, Limpopo
“They’re so proud. They’re so proud. They saw me going around the world winning awards. 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. You know? So, we are making them proud.”
Master KG Tells Apple Music About “Jerusalema” Remix Featuring Burna Boy
“It’s one of those things which will always be the highlights of my career, making a song with someone like Burna Boy, someone that I look up to. He has done so much for himself. For me to end up getting him on this remix, dream come true. I wanted to do a remix. […] I didn’t think of anyone besides Burna Boy because he’s one of the best. I love his music and I love how he approaches songs and so forth.”
