Sizwe Dhlomo stirs the pot again with his advice for Master KG.
Sizwe Dhlomo beats the pot again with his advice for Master KG.
TV and radio personality Sizwe Dhlomo split the web in the week after he dished out advice to Jerusalema hitmaker Master KG.
Not many folks go online to Twitter thinking we’ll get free advice, but sometimes we do get an unwarranted tweet or two in our mentions.
Social media personality Sizwe Dhlomo took to Twitter in the week with some pearls of wisdom for “friend”, artist Master KG.
Master KG and Nomcebo’s song has gone viral over a previous couple of months, reaching quite 100 million views on YouTube and within the week becoming the foremost Shazamed song in the world.
From Cristiano Ronaldo and Janet Jackson bumping to the song, to the viral dance challenge it’s spawned, the song is far and away from the most important SA export this year.
Sizwe reminded the musician that he should stay faithful to his SA roots since he can’t leave the country.
“Yo, Master KG, here’s my advice: The borders are closed immediately, so it’ll be difficult for you to monetize the success of your song. But please forge and solidify relationships (via your label) with everyone who has shown you’re keen on. Then when this is often over, cash in,” tweeted Sizwe.
Yo @MasterKGsa, here’s my advice… The borders are closed right now, so it’ll be difficult for you to monetise the success of your song but please forge & solidify relationships (via your label) with everyone who has shown you love. Then when this is over, take advantage.

While some agreed with Sizwe’s advice, others threw artists Black Coffee and Euphonik into the combination, asking why they were allowed to travel around the world under lockdown, while Master KG was told the “borders are closed”.
They reminded Sizwe that Black Coffee was making those international connections that he was telling Master KG to form.
Sizwe had a solution ready for one among the puzzled tweeps.
“Those bookings were made way back already & even his shows weren’t as packed as they typically are. You can’t just plan a tour impromptu,” said Sizwe.
Still, the talk raged on.
Black Coffee akabambe intwana ngo lift
