Many outstanding well-known figures, have songs written about them in their honour.

In America, other ways in which a celebrity is shown love and appreciation is by erecting a wax statue of them. This is a fun way of honouring well-known stars; especially within the pop culture.

In South Africa, the statue culture has largely been dedicated to Apartheid struggle icons, such as the late Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Winnie Madikizela - Mandela and many others.

Music is such an important, impactful and powerful tool that musicians are using to drive a personal or societal narrative.

Afrikaans musician, Robbie Wessels is riding the wave surrounding the Springboks . Our national rugby team made Mzansi proud by winning the prestigious  2019 world cup against England.

Robbie shared the following with Daily Sun:

"I was at my house thinking I might write song about (Siya) Kolisi. Five minutes later my agent forwarded a Facebook message to me from a guy telling (that) maybe I should write a song about the captain.

"The next morning I was sitting on my couch and praying and I felt in my heart to write the song."
