Durban artist, Lungelo Gumede, has taken down pictures of the wax statue of Ricky Rick that he made in honor of the late artist.
The statue was being showcased at the BAT Centre in Durban.
This comes after Ricky Rick’s family expressed their displeasure at the statue, which instructed him to stop showing the statue.
Lungelo has made wax statues of many popular figures and he said he did not understand why he was made to take down the statue by the family.
Ricky Rick ‘s brother, Themba, told the Daily Sun Newspaper that the family is still in mourning and it’s too soon for the family to look at the wax statue.
