South African music superstar, Master KG in an interview with Nigerian news agency, Punch Nigeria, talks about the recording process for the smash hit single – Jerusalema remix – with Burna Boy.

He told Punch Nigeria that Burna Boy was not paid to feature on Jerusalema remix, according to him, Burna Boy was already aware of the original version of the song and liked it, so it was easy to reach out to him for a feature.

Master KG says: “I did not pay Burna Boy to feature on the song, Jerusalema . . . According to what I heard, the song was one of his favourite songs as well. It was so easy to make it work and make the collaboration a success. So, there was no payment for the feature . . . It was not something he did for money instead he did it because it comes from his heart.”

He also revealed Burna Boy did not seek his assistance in learning how to speak Zulu language nor how to pronounce the words, in fact, Burna Boy had sent the song to him before he realised Burna Boy actually spoke his (Master KG’s) language on the track.

Speaking to Punch Nigeria, he says: “I remember the first time I heard his verse, he sang in Zulu language and I was shocked. I asked him where he learnt the Zulu language from but he just said, ‘don’t worry about that. How do you feel about the song?’ It was amazing. A lot of people think that he asked me how to pronounce the words but he never did that.” He also added he chose to work with the “African Giant” because “Burna Boy is one of the best in Africa.”

Twitter NG i.e users of Twitter in Nigeria, as it is the yearly custom are trending “Happy 420” as the number one topic in the country. While many really used the medium to share their unwavering love for weed, others have taken it upon themselves to make funny tweets, memes, skits and share several videos in relation to weed smoking and “Happy 420” as an entity.

While some tweeps take jab at those who don’t smoke weed but indulge in the “woke” culture by wishing stoners a “Happy 420”, others in their own way intentionally misinterpret certain scriptural verses for comedic purpose in order to aid and bait their smoking habits, still others take it upon themselves to disperse various memes which for sure will bring a smile upon your face. That’s not all, though, for we have some tweeps who did brainstorm to form some of the best puns concerning weed and stoners jokes ever. Well we can say irrespective of the way they passed their message regarding “Happy 420”, they all ended on a high note. Enjoy!
