Master KG’s global hit Jerusalema has reached another milestone, gaining over 50 million views on YouTube.
Jerusalema, which was one of the chart-topping hits for 2019, did not receive a single nod from the South African Music Awards (SAMAs).
Despite the lack of recognition by Mzansi's leading music industry awards, the song has received an international stamp of approval, with fans across the world jamming to the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge.
The challenge has spawned videos from Italy, Spain and France to Jamaica and Canada.
And due to this global recognition, the song has done something few locally produced music videos have managed to achieve.

Making waves
Taking to his Twitter account last Saturday, Master KG shared the big news, calling on his fans to celebrate.
“#Jerusalema has reached 50 million views!! Let's celebrate together,” he wrote, adding the hashtag #Jerusalema50million.
The song has been making waves in the US, including on the Billboard chart.
The Limpopo-born muso has also collaborated with Nigerian superstar Burna Boy for the remix of "Jerusalema", which features vocalist Nomcebo Zikode. This also helped the song reach international charts, with the Ye rapper gaining good favour with South Africans.

Streaming king
The 24-year-old musician celebrated another milestone last year, as "Jerusalema" dominated streaming platforms.
Taking to Twitter, the star expressed his gratitude to all his fans for their continuous support.
“Thank you for the love. I’m currently number one in South Africa with more than 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Thank you for streaming my music.”
