A look at the history of one of the most Shazamed songs ever, “Jerusalema” by Master KG.

In the year 2019, on one particular evening, DJ Kgaogelo Moagi, also known as Master KG, called up singer Nomcebo and invited her to come to his studio in Johannesburg to record a song.

Nomcebo recalls telling him, “But it’s extremely late,” as the response. You want me to come right now?

The music that Master KG played when she arrived gave her shivers, and she absolutely adored it. In the end, it would culminate in the form of the international smash hit “Jerusalema.”

But Nomcebo wasn’t confident that she could think of lyrics right now, so she requested if she might work on it in the comfort of her own home. Even though Master KG instilled in her the self-assurance she required to pull it off that night, she nevertheless asked him to leave the recording studio so that she could have some privacy and space to herself.

After giving it a few more goes, Nomcebo finally had an aha! moment.

“When I opened my mouth, something came out. And I was like, “Master KG, come back, come back,” over and over again. Where exactly are the earphones? After that, about twelve in the morning, we started recording “— I quote her.

Even though the song is sung in Zulu, “Jerusalema” has quickly gained popularity all around the world. At the time of this article’s publishing, the song is the second-most Shazamed song in the world, trailing only “Dynamite” by BTS, and the music video has over 185 million views on YouTube and is still growing.

The song has already earned Master KG nominations for five African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) and numerous shout-outs from celebrities, in part because of a global dancing competition that was inspired by the song.
