Former Governor of the South African Reserve Bank Tito Mboweni recently shared a selfie of himself and a young artist that he supported and South Africans loved him trying create awareness of the man's talent.
Mboweni posed for a selfie with Emmanuel Morema and shared it with his followers. He dedicated the post to the young artists who drew a picture of a younger Mboweni.
Mboweni asked his followers on the social media platform to support Morema because he has great talent.
You might recall that a while ago I tweeted about a young pencil artist from Lenyenye, Tzaneen. Today I drove to his village to collect his drawing of me. Great talent! Please support him. That is the way to go. I paid him well...
Tweeps applauded Mboweni on Twitter:
@FreddyMadike1 - These days we are critical of everything, good and bad. We can do with a little appreciation. Well done Mr Mboweni. I'm sure the young man is over the moon.
