‘Jerusalama’, which features vocalist Nomcebo, was a global TikTok sensation in 2020 and added much cheer to people around the world at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic was rife. Even South African president Cyril Ramaphosa encouraged his people to keep their spirits up with the track.
Fans of the song took to the app to recreate a choreographed dance routine by Angola-based Fenómenos do Semba dance group.
Since then, the ‘Jerusalema’ challenge videos have been viewed over one billion times and helped the track achieve international recognition and chart success in Europe and the US.
On YouTube, the song has been viewed more than 372 million times since it premiered in December 2019.
Recently on Twitter, Master KG wrote: “Jerusalema has over a billion views on Tik Tok alone. Damn bro, this song doesn't want to stop! This is freaking amazing.”
