The move to alert level 1 means there will be further easing of restrictions on a number of things including gatherings.

The president also said international travels for business and leisure purposes will also be permitted, which will allow artists to travel to various countries, to give the world a taste of SA music.

Speaking to ZAlebs Nomcebo Zikode recently said the lockdown restrictions on international travels have affected her because she could be touring “It affected me a lot and when I wrote Xola Moya Wam i was like God you can give me a big song like Jerusalema and then you shutdown the world because I need money. When I wrote Xola Moya Wam, I just cried and and I sang the song and I told him that he must calm down because I see that he is angry,” she said.

Jerusalema’s music video has reached more than 130 million views on YouTube and it continues to top charts across the world.
