So, this is Master KG

MASTER KG

SHIKANDA KAWANGA and ZIO MWALE, Lusaka
IT WAS in July when Lesley Mofokeng wrote a story for the Sowetan titled ‘Bolobedu hitmaker Master KG in the right situation and going places’.
Mofokeng wrote about how Master KG has kept on churning out hits.
He wrote: “Master KG is the latest to take the music industry by storm. The 22-year-old from Calais village in Tzaneen, Limpopo, was born Kgaugelo Moagi.
“At 13 years old, he was already playing with beats on a computer bought by his late uncle. He hooked up with DJ Maebela as they experimented with software.
“Music took up so much of his time that he would fake illness so he could stay in his bedroom all day making music, until his mother locked his room and chased him off to school.
“By the time Master KG gained the confidence to make a career out of making beats, his arsenal was filled to the brim given the years of practice. In 2016, he ventured out with the single ‘Situation’, which got Limpopo throbbing with excitement.
“He was signed to Open Mic recording company in Midrand, which offered him a deal, but insisted he finish his matric, which he did last year.
“In January, he reported for duty at Open Mic and presented one of his old instrumentals, ‘Skeleton Move’ to stablemate Zanda Zakuza, who then wrote the lyrics about never forgetting where one comes from.
“The refrain: No matter where you go/ remember the road that will lead you home has struck a chord with music lovers. The video of the song stands at 1.5 million views on YouTube and has propelled Master KG to the top of the food chain.”
Last Friday, Master KG was performing at Hollywood City Nightclub, and as you would expect, it was a full house.
Zambians have renamed his ‘Skeleton Move’ song as ‘Wanyeka Munzi’. And that is how the Hollywood show was being promoted. If they had promoted it any other way, maybe attendance may not have hit the high numbers that it did.
But Master KG was not the only one on the line-up, there was also Chef 187 and Chester.
Although Master KG performed other songs, the audience seemed only to want ‘Skeleton Move’, sorry ‘Wanyeka Munzi’. And when he performed it, Hollywood City ruptured in excitement with revellers taking out their phones to capture the dance moves.
Oh, and whatever happened to Chester. He walked on stage with a walking clutch. Still, he was determined to perform, and he did. But maybe, he should have stayed home. But again, he did not want to miss the chance to perform alongside Master KG.
