In fact, righ now, both songs have the highest view counts of all the songs the songster has released since he popped on South Africa’s music plane. “Jerusalema,” for instance, has over 50 million YouTube views as off today 27 July 2020. The music video was officially released by open Mic Productions on 12 December 2019.
“Skeleton Move,” which was released a year earlier (2018) by the same Open Mic Productions, has fewer streaming numbers (at 23,757,324 views today 27 July 2020). The song was his first as a mainstream artiste. So its success means a lot to him.
Taking to Twitter on 25 July, the songster indicated the success of the song makes him extremely happy, as does the success of “Jerusalema,” a latter work. Emotional, he thanked God for taking him this far in his career. He also indicated he has his eyes on greater success in the coming years.
By the way, while “Skeleton Move” earned him awards, “Jerusalema,” a more successful work, failed to earn a SAMA nomination this year.
