Is there anywhere in the world where the proudly South African song, Jerusalema, hasn't made an impact? What started off as a #JerusalemaChallenge in the Democratic Republic of Congo and soon travelled all over the world to Europe and Asia has now even reached the United States of America. The significance of the song, especially during the world-wide pandemic has made it a global hit and even catapulted Nomcebo Zikode and Master KG to the top of global music streaming lists.

Ashamedly, the song Jerusalema didn't become a hit in Mzansi until it started being recognised globally. First, it wasn't even considered for a South African Music Award, much to the disappointment of South Africans and even Black Coffee himself, who lambasted the awards show for their ignorance.

With more than 100 million views on YouTube, luck was about to change for the better.

The one and only Janet Jackson, sister to the late Michael Jackson and one of the greatest female artists to ever live, Tweeted a shoutout to a little girl dancing to Jerusalema and tagged Master KG himself. In the short video clip, the little girl can be seen killing the dance floor with her slick and flexible moves.

American Tweeps were utterly impressed by the little girl, while South African Tweeps were in full force claiming her for the country in Janet Jackson's comment section.

Twitter investigators even puled out receipts and revealed who the talented Princess was, hailing from Mamelodi, Pretoria her name is Nala and she managed to grab the attention of an entertainment veteran.

Both Master KG and Nomcebo Zikode expressed their gratitude to Janet Jackson for her recognition of their global hit song in separate Tweets.

Their global exposure and recognition by famous celebrities comes just a few days after Christiano Ronaldo, one of the worlds most famous soccer players was seen jamming to Jerusalema with his family. Just a few days ago, the song went platinum in Italy,  a country that doesn't even understand what is being on said on the song.

According to TimesLIVE, Master KG saidThere were a lot of international record labels that wanted to take care of my career for me going forward. I chose Elektra France because they understand the music that I’m doing.

“Most of their artists are doing house music – David Guetta is also under them – so they understand dance music. I partnered with them to push my career to the next level,” said Master KG."

Another week and he finishes at number 2 on Shazam Global, do you think there are still big things coming for Jerusalema?
