The popular “Jerusalema” dance challenge has been taking social media by storm and creating a positive spirit following the Covid-19 pandemic. People around the world are sharing videos of themselves dancing to the hit song Jerusalema by South African musician Master KG, featuring the voice of South African songstress Nomcebo.

In response to this trend, Graaff Fruit decided to take up the Jerusalema challenge. After diligent practice, on 3 September an enthusiastic group of our staff members performed Graaff Fruit’s own version of the Jerusalema Challenge to an audience of their fellow workers at the Graaff Fruit packhouse (see above). According to packhouse manager MR du Toit, their performance was a great hit. The audience joined in with much enthusiasm and some impromptu dancing and the fun spirit of this teambuilding event certainly lifted the spirits of the packhouse team.
