Master KG’s single Jerusalema travelled the whole world and received recognition from absolutely everyone. The world put on it’s dancing shoes to groove to Jerusalema and Master KG hopes to do the same with his new single. 


The Sama award-winning musician teamed up with producer and songwriter David Guetta and rapper and entrepreneur Akon on a new single titled Shine Your Light. The single was released on 28 May. 

Speaking to AFP, the 25-year-old musician said, “Now is the time for Africa to shine, to present our culture to the world.”

The song is uplifting, cheerful and will make one get up and move their hips to Akon’s vocals. The song screams summer and was released just in time for a Northern hemisphere summer!


The music video for Shine Your Light was released on Monday 19 July. The video was directed by Sama-nominated music video director Kyle White.

White has directed music videos for a number of South African artists, including Nasty C, Tellaman and Lady Zamar. 

Shine Your Light’s music video has a feelgood vibe as Akon and Master KG ride around France in a drop-top car. The pair stop to vibe and dance with the French locals.


Master KG was recently involved in some controversy about his hit single Jerusalema featuring Nomcebo Zikode. 

Zikode posted a statement on social media claiming that she had not been paid for Jerusalema.

“My voice and lyrics have transcended globally, but I still await what is due to me.”

Master KG responded to Zikode’s claims on Twitter saying she wanted 70% while he received 30%, the agreement now is a 50/50 split for both artists.

He continued to say that Zikode had been paid R1.5 million for Jerusalema and further mentioned that he hadn’t bee paid for his contribution to her song Xola Moya Wami
