Musician Master KG says he is grateful after scoring a spot on the prestigious Forbes Africa 30 under 30 list. 

Mihlali Ndamase, Kabza de Small and rugby players Cheslin Kolbe and Lukhanyo Am were some of the names raising the SA flag alongside Master KG.

Taking to Twitter, the star went on to speak about his recent boss moves, letting fans know that his single Shine Your Light featuring David Guetta and Akon has been topping the charts. The Jerusalema hitmaker thanked God for all his achievements.

I just keep getting better! Friday, I dropped a new song with David Guetta and Akon already it's on millions of streams and charting across the globe and yesterday I was part of Forbes Africa 30 under 30. Thank you, god,” said KG.

Fans took to his replies to congratulate him on his ever-growing popularity across the globe.

Many of his ardent fans had words of encouragement for the star to keep on keeping at it as he kills it every time. Check out their responses:

Last week, the international sensation announced that he would be dropping a track with Akon and David Guetta.  

The central message of Shine Your Light speaks to better days coming for everyone across the globe, especially after the tough times during the global coronavirus pandemic. It’s a track made to appeal to everyone but which retains the unique elements associated with Master KG’s music.

“I’m so excited I’m dropping a brand new song with two amazing legends, David Guetta and Akon, at midnight and at the same time Jerusalema just reached 400 million views on YouTube. What a time to be alive!” said Master KG.
