Despite the fact that “Jerusalema” was one of the chart-topping hits in 2019, it did not receive a single nod from the South African Music Awards (SAMAs), which left many enraged.
In spite of the lack of recognition by South Africa’s biggest music industry awards, the song has received an international stamp of approval from fans the world over.
Considering the success of the song, the South-African duo partnered with Afro-fusion artiste, Burna Boy to deliver a Jerusalema remix which has equally been well received by fans the world over.
