Wax Artist Lungelo Gumede who is Ayanda Ncwane’s brother has destroyed Riky’s statue that he made with love and in his honor because Riky’s family threatened to sue him.
Lungelo created Riky Rick’s statue after he learned of his passing and spent R60 000 and 1 week to put it together. He put it at Bat Centre in Durban for free viewing but Riky’s family was reportedly not happy with the timing as they are still mourning. Riky’s brother Themba sent Lungelo a hot text on Sunday telling him to stop exhibiting his brother’s statue. Gumede covered it up and stopped people from viewing it but Riky’s fans got angry because they wanted to see it, so he decided to destroy it.
