The community is apparently very excited about the eye catching creation.
Not one to wait to be celebrated, Papa Penny has taken it upon himself to honour his own legacy by unveiling a statue in his hometown in Limpopo.
He shared an image on Instagram of the statue which is clad in a bright red suit and has his signature hairstyle.
Speaking to Tshisa LIVE, Papa Penny said he would rather honour himself now then wait for others to do so.
“It is my legacy. I decided to build it now because I don’t want them to build me one when I am dead and I’m not able to see it. They must honour me while I am still alive.
The statue sits alongside several other statues of animals and is a big hit with the community. “Everyone is so happy. They love it. My family likes it and the community are so excited they are speechless,” he said.
