Master KG scoops yet another win with his wildly successful song “Jerusalema”.
South African hitmaker has reached diamond status in France for his "Jerusalema" remix featuring Burna Boy. The sensational house DJ continues to be a trailblazer after the success of original hit song Jerusalema, featuring Nomcebo Zikode. Nigerian superstar Burna Boy jumped onto the track shortly after the viral #JersalemaChallenge. The news of the diamond certification follows the release of the remix in June of this year. Master KG recently shared the news on Twitter.
This is a big win for Master KG as diamond status is admittedly difficult to reach in France. SNEP, (Syndicat national de l’édition phonographique), France's record industry organisation, requires 35 million streams for a single to be certified diamond. Initially, record sales of over 250 000 were the criterion for diamond status but this has changed due to the increasing digitisation of music. SNEP counts 150 streams as equal to 1 sale.
