Renowned record producer and musician Master KG is asking Twitter to grant him the blue verification badge.
The muso’s popularity has soared after his smash hit “Jerusalema” went viral.
His chart-topping song got people across the world on their feet, dancing and singing along. It has taken the world by storm, hitting No 1 spot in many countries.
“Jerusalema” has more than 110 million views on YouTube. It was recently certified platinum in Italy.
The global anthem features local vocalist Nomcebo Zikode.
Making a plea to one of the world’s biggest social networking services, Master KG wrote: “Twitter please verify Me I Have Been trying.”
While many Twitter users including DJ Fresh and Julius Malema have urged the muso to apply for verification because he’s now an international artist, Cassper Nyovest told Master KG he doesn’t need the verification badge.
“You don’t need none of that s*** man!!! You’re a legend!!!” tweeted the “Mama I Made It” hitmaker.
Seemingly unimpressed by his response, tweeps called out Nyovest, with many asking why Master KG shouldn’t get Twitter verification when Nyovest himself has the badge.
“So wena you want to stay verified and he mustn’t?” asked Duncan Ramahana.
“More reason why he must be verified. Clearly you do not know what verification is for,” commented Kello Daywalker.
“Cassper do you even know the main reasons and purpose for a blue tick?” asked Volsa.
“Wena you are verified, so wait,” commented Makua.
“Give him yours ke let’s see if you don’t need it,” added another user, Adovovolicious.
