Jerusalama, which features vocalist Nomcebo, was a global TikTok sensation in 2020 and added much cheer to people around the world at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic was rife – even President Cyril Ramaphosa encouraged South Africans to keep their spirits up with this song.
Fans of the song took to the app to recreate a choreographed dance routine by Angola-based Fenómenos do Semba dance group.
