The success of his single is so loud, however the silence from many of the celebrities is louder. This was pointed out by radio and television presenter DJ Sbu who simply said many celebrities are jealous of Big Zulu's success.

Well not entirely all, Cassper Nyovest has given Zulu his stamp of approval for the massive hit. And it might also be because Zulu referenced his hit Tito Mboweni in his verses, but apart from that, little to to no other rappers have gave Big Zulu his flowers.

DJ Fresh also gave props to the rapper by participating on the #ImaliEningiChallenge, which has gone viral on social media. The challenge dominated social media for the longest time, trending at number one numerous times. It was started by ex president Jacob Zuma's son who's walk has many crushing over him. Since going viral, it has gained the attention from many people who decided to take part in the challenge.

A Twitter user pointed out that not many people congratulated Big Zulu so he asked, "Mara why are south African celebrities not doing the #ImaliEningichallenge? Just to show support nyana ku @BigZulu_ZN?" a question which DJ Sbu responded by saying, "Abanye banomona (Some of them are jealous)."

Well all thanks to the challenge, the song and music video's views sky rocketed to an impressive 1.1 million views in just one week. His music video was uploaded on YouTube about a week ago and it has already garnered more than 1.1 million views. It is also currently the biggest song in the country sitting comfortably at the number 1 spot in a number of local charts.

Riky Rick was the least favourite artist in the song because of his rapping in English, when the song is delivered in IsiZulu. Riky mized all the hate and celebrated the success of their collaboration, revealing that it took them three years to grab the perfect opportunity to collaborate.

"GOD IS GOOD! It took over 3 years for us to find the right record (to) collaborate on so we are grateful you are allowing “Mali Eningi” into your hearts and homes. Siyabonga @bigzulu_sa @intabayasedubainm @labeatz_king UNKULUNKULU UYANITHANDA BAFETHU. DANKIE JESU (God loves you all. Thank you Jesus.) #1 yonke indawo (number 1 everywhere.)"
