The removal of Master KGโ€™s much loved hit song Jerusalema on YouTube left some fans suspecting foul play, but the musician quickly killed the rumour, saying it was due to technical glitches. 

The global favourite had raked in more than 60 million views on YouTube since its release in December 2019. The musician and his fans have said they were on a mission to get it to 100 million before the end of the year.

Lovers of dance music from countries including Namibia, Italy and SA flooded social media to share videos taking part in the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge. The song has been hailed for its ability to unite people across races and borders.

Master KG told TshisaLIVE that the success of Jerusalema reminds him of an all-time dance classic, Macarena.
