He captioned the post:

"We always make noise about Rasta and his paintings, but when someone erected this wonderful statue of Mama Winnie and Nelson Mandela in Sandton.... #WeKeptQuietAsACountry."

His post sparked a reaction online and even got a comment from Rasta himself.

Others also commented on both @Moses_Buju_M and Holomisa's posts and many felt the artist nailed the statue of Mama Winnie.

Professor J Mahlangu, who goes by the Twitter handle @maths00001, commented:

"Eh mama looks alive and well, very beautiful."

Another tweep, @LangaSboh, added:

"Wow! This is absolutely beautiful." previously reported a local artist wowed Mzansi with stunning pencil sketch of Nelson Mandela.
