“Jerusalema” is a song by South African DJ and record producer Master KG featuring South African vocalist Nomcebo. The upbeat gospel-influenced house song was initially released on 29 November 2019, sparked viral dance steps globally since the beginning of this year.
From hospital hallways in France and Sweden, to roof tops, public places in Italy, Romania, the UK and Canada, the beaches of Cape Verde, in a Jamaican compound, somewhere in Tanzania; on Facebook, Twitter and TikTok, the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge has hundreds posting videos of themselves or others dancing to the song.
How this started, is a story for another day. Today, let us watch the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation employees take up the dance challenge.
Well done to Master KG for this outstanding track that has gone all over the world! Who would have known that Jerusalema would globe-trot like this, especially after the track did not get any award back home?
Are you still here, join in the JERUSALEMA CHALLENGE!
