After the Ndlovu Youth Choir got back onto the America’s Got Talent stage, the choir shared their own take of Master KG’s now-viral Jerusalema dance challenge.

The choir took on the dance challenge, saying:

“#JerusalemaDanceChallenge Ndlovu style. Big love and respect to Master KG for bringing the world together.”

It seems that their take on the challenge is one of the favourites amongst South Africans:

“Long-awaited.. so beautiful.. thank you for spreading so much joy and happiness!! Best wishes to you all!” said one user on Facebook where the video clocked in over 5000 Likes.

Going viral

Since Master KG and Nomcebo Zikode’s hit went viral, various people from all over the world proceeded in taking part in the dance challenge.

The South African DJ’s hit Jerusalema has taken the world by storm with more than 100 million views on YouTube and counting. The song, that was released in 2019, reached a new peak on the ‘Shazam global top 200’ earlier in June when the dance challenge hit the internet. Master KG later said he was incredibly proud of the success the song had garnered.

“I am so happy, it’s a dream come true for Jerusalema to be top four on Shazam global charts. I’ve always adored other artists being on the charts and now it’s my turn. It’s a really exciting moment.”

Even President Cyril Ramaphosa urged South Africans to take part in the challenge this upcoming Heritage Day (24 September 2020):

“There can be no better way to celebrate our South Africans than joining the global phenomenon that is spreading across the world, and that is the Jerusalema dance challenge….the Jerusalema song that I love so much. So I urge all of you to take up this challenge on Heritage Day and show the world what we are capable of,” he said during his latest address to the nation in which he announced South Africa’s move to level 1 of the national lockdown.
