The South African Music Awards (SAMA26) happened this weekend and it caused a ripple on twitter, for good and bad reasons.
Hit song ‘Jerusalema’ by South African DJ, Master KG, and Nomcebo was not nominated at all and people found that shocking. Don’t you?
The video, posted 7 months ago, has hit 50 MILLION views and counting. This was shared in a tweet by Master KG himself
According to a twitter user, the reason the song didn’t get nominated is because it didn’t get enough radio play.
In this day and age, don’t digital streams and downloads count for anything?
Anyway, the song Jerusalema has been remixed by several people, most notably is Nigeria’s Burna Boy whose version is more of a love song than gospel. At the time of this post, the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge was also trending on twitter.
