It only makes sense to make a statue of SA's most popular rapper right?

And that's what artist, Lungelo Gumede wants to do for Cassper Nyovest.

The artist, who has painted numerous portraits of stars such as the likes of the late S'fiso Ncwane, has approached the rapper to do a portrait of him.

Lungelo proposed a bet to Cassper Nyovest that if he received 50,000 retweets he would then do a wax statue of the rapper.

Cassper was humbled by the proposition but explained that he is not that vain to have a statue of himself but would absolutely love a statue of Mufasa (the Lion King character) in his backyard.

Lungelo has taken up the offer and informed Cassper that he is already on the job and is already working on the designs.

We must say, Lungelo is one talented artist, he's done numerous wax statues for people like the late Senzo Meyiwa...
