South African hitmaker Master KG 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, France’s record industry organisation, requires 35 million streams for a single to be certified diamond. Initially, record sales of over 250k were the criterion for diamond status but this has changed due to the increasing digitisation of music. Snep counts 150 stream as equal to 1 sales. While the USA combines sales and streams of over 10 million for diamond certification.
According the RiSA (Recording industry of South Africa), diamond status does not exist as the organisation does not qualify streams on iTunes or any other streaming platform. Conversely, according to YFM, AKA reached multi-diamond status after selling over 1.7 million singles for “Dreamworks” and “One Time” in 2019.
