Cape Town -  In an age of “bubblegum” pop music, who would have thought Southern Africa would still be dancing to the beat of a 2019 song?

Master KG’s “Jerusalema” has bucked the pop trend of being a flash in the pan by giving itself new relevance as a dance challenge.

South Africa’s Master KG, real name Kgaogelo Moagi,released the song in the last quarter of last year and it made a name for itself as a festive hit.

Ten months later, the song is as fresh as a mid-2020 release as videos of the Jerusalema challenge pop up all over the World Wide Web, some of them done by COVID-19 frontline healthcare workers in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Italy, the United Kingdom, The United States, Mexico, Australia, Puerto Rico and everywhere in between.

Usually, young African internet users have been the ones to adopt Western online fads, but with Jerusalema, it is the other way round.

Among chorographers who have taken up the Jerusalema dance challenge and even uploaded YouTube tutorials on it are Frenchman Franky Roy, Easydance Celleno from Italy, and Belgian dancer and actress Sarah Bossuwe.
