Master KG Reveals Burna Boy Wasn’t Paid To Feature In Jerusalema Remix

2 Mins read

Master KG has said that Burna Boy was not paid to feature on the remix of his hit song, Jerusalema.

Popular South African singer, Master KG, has revealed that Nigerian two-time Grammy Award nominee, Burna Boy, was not paid a dime to feature on the remix of his hit song, Jerusalema.

Although the original version of Jerusalema was a commercial hit, the remix which features the self-acclaimed African giant, transcends the original song’s success.

The remix is certified gold in Austria, diamond in France and platinum in Belgium, and is still enjoying massive airplay.

Speaking in an interview with The Punch, Master KG said the main reason there was no payment for the feature is because the original song was one of Burna Boy’s favourite music.

Master KG said:

“I did not pay Burna Boy to feature on the remix of the song, Jerusalema. There was no paid fee for this feature to happen. The amazing thing about the song is that it was already popular. According to what I heard, the song was one of his favourite songs as well. It was so easy to make it work and make the collaboration a success. So, there was no payment for the feature.
“I also feel that the reason there was no money involved is because Burna Boy also loves the song and he related well with the song. It was not something he did for money instead he did it because it comes from his heart.”

Master KG further revealed that he was surprised when Burna sang in Zulu language on the song.

He said:

“I remember the first time I heard his verse, he sang in Zulu language and I was shocked. I asked him where he learnt the Zulu language from but he just said, ‘don’t worry about that. How do you feel about the song?’ It was amazing. A lot of people think that he asked me how to pronounce the words but he never did that, that shows you that he is an African man and the African giant. He showed that we are all one in Africa despite the languages we speak”
