“Sorry, guys there is some technical issue regarding Jerusalema music video on YouTube. It will be back ASAP,” wrote Master KG.
Mgosi.co.za tried to play Jerusalema from an article which we embedded the video in and it gave us the following message:
“Video Unavailable. This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.”
Master KG had previously said the video was removed and Open Mic Productions had this to say: “We would like to confirm that the Jerusalema video was not removed on YouTube and just like Master KG has said it’s just a technical issue and the video will be restored, we gonna reach 100Million views.”
Jerusalema was above 65-million views on YouTube.
Warner Music Group’s (WMG) Elektra France has signed an exclusive deal for Master KG’s latest album Jerusalema.
Music Business Worldwide reports that the deal sees Elektra France hold the rights for the album worldwide, excluding Sub Saharan Africa where the rights will be looked after by Warner Music Group’s ADA.
The signing comes through WMG’s partnership with digital music distribution, music rights management and artist development company Africori, and the record label Open Mic Productions where Master KG is signed.
Master KG was born in 1996 in Calais village, Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa.
He rose to fame with his 2018 debut album Skeleton Move, which won him numerous awards including AFRIMMA’s Best Artist and Song of the Year as well as African Musik Magazine Awards’ Best Male Artist.
Thierry Chassagne, President, Warner Music France, said: “Master KG has through Open Mic Productions made an incredible album with Jerusalema and I’m delighted we will be working with him on a global platform.
“Working alongside Africori, Open Mic Productions, and our international partners within Warner Music I’m excited to see how this record will travel around the world.”
That’s just about it – that’s the technical issue Master KG and Open Mic Productions are talking about when it comes to Jerusalema.
