  • Great work brother, very beautiful song I love it. The beat very intense 🙏❤

  • When I first heard this song and watched the-videos I felt such JOY! It continues to do so!

  • My people!!!!!! The true HEBREW ISRAELITES!!!! WE ARE YAH’S CHOSEN PEOPLE!!!! IT’S OUR HOME. THE RUACH OF ELOHYIM GAVE YOU THAT SONG. We are about to go home. YAHUSHA is coming to bring us back to YIRUSALYIM (Jerusalem)! HalleluYAH to the Most High YAH🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾!

  • Jerusalem Mother exist! She is our Heavenly Mother 🙏🏾 Gal 4:26

  • South Africa rules.

  • The so-called black peoples are the real Jews thats biblical...Jerusalem will be restored to the 12 tribes of Israel who is scattered through Africa America the islands Asia Europe the four corners of the earth 🌍.

  • I hear JESUS! JESUS! In this SONG!!! Brought tears to my eyes calling out ABBA!!!!

  • You have brought this scary divided world more clowser and more respecfull as we deservice

  • Yes it's a beautiful song praise God.Blessings.

  • Lindo!!!! Essa musica demonstra solidariedade, amor comunhão com todo o mundo. Todos dançando é uma grande demonstração de amor. Parabens, Deus abençõe todos voces. Hello from Brasil!

  • I congratuletiu and I proud od u

  • Well thank you from Puerto Rico you made my 80 year old sister dance..she wants to take lessons just to dance Jerusalema, we love it you know we also have African blood in our veins

  • You are a genius! It comes from your heart and your wish to make something spiritual and happy and beautiful. Thank you ❤️🙏🏼

  • ❤❤❤I would give this DJ a song of the decade award! This song move the entire Word!

  • By this song God has sent a message to mankind that will soon be confirmed with evidence of his dying for our sins and his status as our God. Jerusalem is the home of God and the Ark of the covenant both old and new as discovered by Ron Wyatt and confirmed by Henry Gruver the prayer walker. I suggest everyone become familiar with these two men of God that have served him well and have both now gone to their reward. Jesus is returning soon for his brides which are us God willing if we are in his grace! Be happy that he is returning and that he will change the minds of men! Many things will change in this year so be aware and prepared, pray fervently for our leaders bad and good as they all have souls that Jesus suffered and died on a cross to redeem!

  • It's a beautiful song! And your sister has THE most amazing voice 😍❤️ I want yo hear more from her! Definitely! Your music and your beats and everything you put into this before she sang with it is amazing! That beat makes me want to dance! Eve without your sister singing!. Mit makes me want to learn about my African heritage and learn about the different tribes, and the villages and know and respect the elders too. Your sister made your music million times better! I just struggle to do the dance moves 🙈😂 I keep trying, but my feet don't seem to gk the way they're supposed to go 😂 BUT I've been watching videos to learn and it's hard o do the moves AND watch a video... I KNOW that if I attended a party that played this and everybody did the dance, I'd learn it soooo much quicker. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this song and music! IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! ❤️

  • I feel joy when i hear this song.grethings from Sweden.

  • Jerusalem is my home and u all welcome God bless Jerusalem the capital of Israel 🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱

  • Aww my new favourite among cause Jerusalem is my name. Lol

  • At this moment I just need positive things and I found this beautiful song a lot of it❤️❤️🇵🇪

  • dunno if this is good or bad...because in end times...all the world will be drawn to israel in final war against god, armeggedon.

  • Love knows no boundaries. God loves us all. Thank you for this song.

  • Of course!!! Because who walks with God will always reach their destination!! Amen!! Song like this that celebrates God must go viral

  • I'm obsessed with the emotions this song makes me feel. It makes me feel that Jerusalema is my home too. This really makes me want to visit and hopefully one day I will. This song just gave me a whiff of their rich culture and I can't wait to learn more. A lot of illiterate people live all around and are super racist (especially where I come from) like whenever they hear of Africa they immediately think of poor, "ugly" and malnourished people. They overlook their rich and divine culture. Hopefully, we can work together and show all of them the beautiful culture and people we are missing out on!

  • This song is helping to unify a world long divided by satan through ethnic social political economic cultural moral gender religious differences....may the New Jerusalem indeed descend Thank you Master KG...from Antigua

  • The song just brings me so much peace.

  • 💕💕💕

  • thank you for your song, and thank Ms. Nomcebo for singing it, and your culture for its dance, which I learned and can now do, huffing and puffing.

  • Dziekuje❤🙏🥰🌹🇵🇱.

  • God bless your humility. We need more songs like this and not the garbage that’s being put out there for our kids to here that talks about every unholy thing you can think you. Love and blessings to and your sister for bringing such love and unity which is so badly needed right. I live in America and we have more racism and separatism than any other country I feel right now. Please pray for us because we Really need it right now.🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • I see myself dancing with JESUS, Oh He can Dance.....

  • I absolutely love this song.. I literally feel it in my soul when I listen to it. You did such a great job. 🙏🏻 thank you! We need more music like this

  • 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌼🌼🌼🌼

  • Thank you for that song and a big HELLO from Germany

  • Thanks you...🙏🥰

  • Great and Spiritual ! Weldone !

  • I'm from South Africa. While I like the song and that everyone around the world is enjoying it, I don't believe it's a spiritual song in our sense of the word. South Africa is a fractured country, and by no means united. I wish it was, because together, we have the potential to be an awesome bunch of humans. The song sounds too much like Julius Malema, who hates white people, and chants songs with the youth to promote hate and violence. Be careful what you worship people.

  • Thank you very much for this beautiful song and dance....Thank you..... God bless you guys. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Once again thank you South Africa 🙏

  • and the song got my attention in the first place. I have been watching all the videos that people danced

  • Blessings all the way. Thank you for the song.

  • I'm a 66 year old white man that lives in Florida, I have watched several of the dance challenge videos , mainly because I really like the song , and I just watched another , but for some reason I got so emotional by the end of the song, I have tears running down my cheeks, without understanding a single word, or knowing what language it was, I just love the music

    • Same reaction , no idea what is it saying, but the very fact that people all over the planet took it and spontaneously started to dance like we are all one nation, that was so above the captivating rhythm, tears run into my eyes , but it feels somehow warm around my heart. I guess it gives us a new hope and a chance to believe in mankind again?

  • The credit must be given to the Angola guys for the popularity of the song and dance whether or not the dance originated from South Africa. The origin of the dance is not particularly the issue but the synergy makes the dance and the song acceptable in the world. The song is popular because the dance made it to the world as an attraction. Please those Angola guys must share in the popularity so long as the dance by the Angolans was not part of the original dance in the video for its demonstration, they played a vital role in the popularity of the music.

  • Global anthem...because Jerusalem is our end destination.

  • Yes This Song Is So Spiritual 🔥 I personally love it..As I listen to it Over and Over Again I Feel The Spirit of GOD ALMIGHTY..TOUCH MY SPIRIT WITH FREEDOM AND LOVE 💘 THANK GOD FOR THIS SONG 🎵 IT'S NOT JUST FOR DANCING. IT IS FOR CONNECTING TO JESUS and HIS LOVE 💘 FOR HIS CHILDREN

  • Great song and I am one of the fans of this song. I am so glad you gave honor to whom honor is due - you gave honor to God who made it possible for your song to go viral. Keep up the good work, and more blessings

  • Thank you for letting God use you. This song is truly heart felt by us Jews who are waiting for God's exile of our forefathers (722BCE) to end, so we, (the lost 10 tribes of Israel) we can all go back home again.

  • Thanks you for sharing the meaning of your song.

  • Whatever about Jerusalem, Israel, I love it.

  • This way is sung by your Africans at weddings? Makes sense! This song calls our souls to the wedding with God💞

  • The heavenly Jesusalem is every human soul's home (God put this in our blueprint). This song stirs a long burried longing memory in the human soul💝calling it to acknowledge it's maker ❤

  • EVERYONE, was created by God most high& he put it in our blueprint to long for home, harmony, justice, truth, joy & so on. Souls ate catching on to that song, SPECIALLY now, in lockdown? When we are forced to rethink our way of living & rethink if we REALLY want to sell our eternal soul for the perishing things of this world

  • Well done my friend. Whenever you bless Jerusalem you get blessed. Curse it and you are cursed. Historically factual.

  • A beautiful song!!! I love it!

  • It's really so spiritual the music, the dance, the song. You and your sister create something beautiful, this song make me feel happy, it's society song. The dance go over the world 🌎and make magic "The Yerusalema challenge" ...

The King is coming! God bless all of you reading this, may your families be blessed too. Much love ❤️

  • Well done man! 👍❤️🇬🇷

  • Os sonolentos de plantão sempre dando deslikes. Ainda vão despertar...acordar para a verdadeira realidade que é: SOMOS TODOS UM... Paz e bem à todos.


  • Give Yah the glory. He gave it to you. He wanted it presented before the world. It is the cry and prayer of His people longing to go back home. True Israel has been sold all around the world.
