Ndebele artist Mama Esther Mahlangu continues to be celebrated in more ways than ever before. The 81-year-old who is well known for her colorful traditional art, was recently honoured in New York City with a big mural painted in her honour.

Somizi Mhlongo dedicated his Friday outfit to the artist  and dressed up in traditional attire inspired by her classic signature look. 

He obviously turned things up a notch because he is Somizi and being extra is in his DNA but he did a really great job in channeling one of South Africa's most respected living legends.

We're not saying he does it better than Gogo but he does look really good. He looks like the proud African man he is.
