PLAYING AND DANCING TO JERUSALEMA BY NOMCEBO ZIKODE AND MASTER KG FEATURING ALFRED UZOKWE

hen the song, Jerusalema, was released late 2019, its upbeat rhythm made it a fan favorite. A group dance step was promptly developed for it and became so catchy that every time one opened YouTube, there will be another group doing the dance step somewhere around the world.

But in all that, so many did not realize that Jerusalema was actually a gospel song! This is partly because the lyrics are rendered in Swahili. The song is actually a gospel song that speaks glowingly about Jerusalem. This writer remembers that when I was growing up, with the many songs about heaven and Jerusalem, I actually thought that Jerusalem was in heaven.

I will put a portion of the English translation below to give the reader a little sense of what the lyrics say. The lyrics read:

Jerusalem, my home,
Save me! Join me, Donít leave me here!
Jerusalem, my home,
Save me! Join me, Donít leave me here!

My place is not here, My kingdom is not here,
Save me, Come with me!
My place is not here, My kingdom is not here,
Save me, Come with me!.......
