South Africans are joining the Jerusalema dance challenge and we are loving seeing all the videos being shared by individuals, charities and companies.


South Africa (04 Septemeber 2020) – Master KG’s song Jerusalema has become a global dancing challenge. Every week, we see a new video trending online of a group dancing to the now smash hit. The song first premiered on YouTube in December 2019.

Master KG is a 24-year-old rising star who comes from Calais Village, Limpopo. He released his first song “Skeleton Move” and it too is starting to do well. Black Coffee even received the song as a request at one of his gigs recently.

“Music Doesn’t Need Visa To travel And Music it Doesn’t Matter Where You Come From..and the type of music u do. It’s Possible To be heard all over the world. Just Believe In Your Self And Work Hard And Respect your work” – Master KG

While the song and dance took the world by storm as a fun trend, it has become a beacon of hope in South Africa. Many people are finding it brings them joy in what is a very trying time for the country. Just this morning we reported on Sun City finally opening their doors. After 150 days of not being able to work, the staff celebrated by doing the dance challenge. You can read all about it here.

Others join the challenge every day. For many, it is the first time in a long time they have had the opportunity to let loose and have a laugh.

Below are some of the latest videos being shared across social media this week. We will be the first to admit that seeing the unity in every single one of these videos brings tears of joy to our eyes! How many of you are moved to tears too?

Below was a ‘World Record’ attempt in Plettenberg Bay. South Africans from all walks of life learned the song and came together to dance in unity!

And for some international fun, here is Cristiano Ronaldo doing the dance at a family celebration.
