Jerusalema hitmaker Master KG has thanked South Africans who heeded President Cyril Ramaphosa's call to take part in the viral dance challenge on Heritage Day.
Thousands of South Africans put on their dance shoes and showed the world what they're made of.

I did not want to upstage the team at @PresidencyZA with my dance moves, but job well done! Thank you all for participating so enthusiastically in the #JerusalemaChallenge. @MasterKGSA & @NomceboZikode thank you for giving the world such a special & proudly South African moment. pic.twitter.com/MXXqR6HOSH— Cyril Ramaphosa 🇿🇦 #StaySafe (@CyrilRamaphosa) September 25, 2020
