Twitter users shocked by Master KG’s Jerusalema failing to earn SAMA nomination

Published on

Master KG’s fans have come to his defence by questioning why his hit single, Jerusalema, featuring Nomcebo Zikode, failed to earn him a SAMA nomination.

Master KG took to Twitter on Thursday, 9 July 2020, to congratulate all the nominees for the twenty-sixth edition of The South African Music Awards (SAMAs). His tweet did not aim to create a stir over the fact that his hit single, Jerusalema, featuring Nomcebo Zikode, was completely shunned by the awards ceremony.

Master KG, instead, vowed to work even harder in order to be nominated at next year’s awards. However, his fans came to his defence and were quick to question why he was not nominated.

Twitter users took to their timelines to lambaste and question the selection process that determines the nominees. Other comments suggested that the selection process was biased towards more urban musicians, claiming that The SAMAs do not recognise musicians from lesser-known provinces, such as Limpopo.
