I know, I know! I am late to the game yet again. I am aware that the Jerusalema challenge went viral some time ago and I am also aware that this video was produced some time ago, but I can’t help the timing of when I happen upon these things. All I know is that it came across my screen this week and I can’t get enough.
To give you a little background, the dance is actually custom at South African weddings according to Master KG the producer of the song. Think of it like the electric slide with a twist.
I found myself even more intrigued after watching the Jerusalema music video. Although I couldn’t understand what was being said, I knew the singer, Nomcebo Zikode was singing about something beautiful, so I decided to look it up.
The song is written in Zulu, a Southern Bantu language of the Nguni branch spoken in Southern Africa. The lyrics are basically a repetition of: Jerusalem my home, rescue me, don’t leave me here, my place is not here, my kingdom is not here, save me. Anyone familiar with the Christian faith knows why these are beautiful words, not just to the singer but to the God we serve. We all know that more than wanting His children home, God wants His children to want to come home.
Anyway, that’s your Jerusalma lesson for the day. Have you seen any other challenges you like? Share them in the comments below. And of course I wasn’t going to leave without dropping the tune for you.
