Cassper Nyovest has taken to social media to share his views on Master KG and Nomcebo's record-breaking smash Jerusalema. The rapper believes that the internationally-recognised song will hit a billion views on YouTube.
The Amademoni hitmaker, who is one of the most successful artists in Mzansi, expressed that he is inspired by the success of the single by his country's musicians. It is refreshing to see Cass giving credit where it is due. The song currently has just over 113 million views on the video-sharing app.
"Master KG is gonna hit a billion views with Jerusalema!!! That would be so brilliant to witness!!!! So inspiring!!!"
Cassper's fans took to his comment section to share mixed reactions to his post. Some believe that the track can actually hit a billion views because of the support it keeps receiving from international stars. Some tweeps said that is highly impossible.
"Why not, when people like Christiano Ronaldo promote Jerusalema free of charge, remember to meet Christiano just to sit down and talk with him can cost you R30 million, but he just advertised Jerusalema song for free."
"People love escalation man, ain't no way this is reaching a billion... Let's just appreciate that it did good and move on."
"You mean this video that's 885M views away from a billion?"
"Billion views? I would love to witness that. Most videos that hit billion views are 5 years old, if Jerusalema were to hit it before 5 years period then this may be a record-breaking track."
"I'm happy I'll be alive to witness this greatness, Jerusalema is for the books."
Briefly.co.za reported that world superstar footballer, Christiano Ronaldo, also participated in the #JerusalemaChallenge.

In other news related to Master KG, Briefly.co.za reported that Nomcebo Zikode has laughed off suggestions that she's a one-hit wonder following the success of her collab with Master KG. The song is big internationally and it even started a viral dance challenge across the globe.
"This is not the first song I have recorded to make it big. Even Master KG has released big songs in the past. I recorded a song with DJ Ganyani, Emazulwini, it went very big and people were also saying that I would never record another big song, and then came Jerusalema. I have many more songs like that."
The songstress has been keeping Mzansi dancing even before taking over the international dance scene with Master KG and their single titled Jerusalema.
Her 2017 song with DJ Ganyani called Emazulwini was also big on South African TV and radio stations. Kobanini was also a dance-floor filler during last year's festive season. She worked on that track with popular SA DJ Mobi Dixon.
