Master KG only accepts heavy prizes from major countries
While Mzansi agrees that musician Master KG deserves the music and influence awards he’s been bagging, being awarded the foremost Stylish SA Icon award didn’t sit well with many of us on the TL and Master KG has begun to deal with them.
The Limpopo-born musician has been on the roll, bagging each and each award he’s been nominated for within the past few weeks and receiving support and admiration for everyone, until his most up-to-date win at the annual Style Awards.
The musician said, for him, it had been more an accolade for his musical achievements globally.
“Myself winning an SA Style Award is an accolade for achievement within the music industry, for creating my mark and embracing people globally. it isn’t about how I dress, I hope people understand,” he wrote on his Twitter.
The winners within the ten categories of the awards were announced before a Covid-conscious, invite-only awards ceremony, which happened in Sandton, Johannesburg, on November 22. it had been at the glitzy event, that the person honored within the 11th category — Most Stylish SA Icon — was revealed as being Jerusalema hitmaker Master KG.
The DJ wasn’t the sole person tweeps appeared to have a drag with … there have been a few individuals who questioned the winners of the opposite categories also.
The Jerusalem hitmaker quickly got over the hate because he bagged yet one more prestigious award nomination and had to celebrate.
Certainly the “too blessed to be stressed” poster child, Master KG took to his Twitter to precise his gratitude over being selected among Africa’s absolute best talent to contest for the simplest African Act at the 2020 MOBO Awards.
“Nominated at this year #MOBOAwards Damm So Blessed to be a part of this,” the DJ tweeted before asking his fans to vote for him.
The MOBO Awards are dubbed the UK’s biggest celebration of African-American music and culture. they’re going to happen on December 9, live-streamed for the very first time on YouTube.
Master KG is nominated among the likes of Burna Boy, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, and Stonebwoy.
