Back in November, 2019, South African musician and record producer Kgaogelo Maogi, known professionally as  Master KG, released his smash hit “Jerusalema” featuring Nomcebo Zikode.

The smash hit quickly went viral and garnered tremendous international success, and in December, Master KG followed up his summer hit with a music video.

It was such a huge success that Afrobeats superstar and self-acclaimed African Giant Burna boy jumped on the hit and they made a remix in 2020, which peaked at #2 on Billboard World Digital song sales and remains on the chart after nine weeks.

10 months later and this hit is still sitting tight on international playlists. With 9 million posts on Instagram, 100 million views on YouTube, 130 million content on TikTok among other successes.

On Tuesday, Master KG revealed that “Jerusalema” has earned a platinum certification in Italy.

No surprise that “Jerusalema” was still No. 1 on Apple Music South Africa chart on the 30th of August, 2020.

As at 31st of August, 2020, it was still the No.3 most played song on radio in South Africa, No. 1 in Belgium, 3 in France and 5 in Italy.

“Jerusalema” was also listed number 9 on iTunes World Music Awards, along side Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” and her recent feature with Cardi BWAP

“Jerusalema” was also listed among top hit singles by Le SNEP.
