Madam boss has taken the Mbuya Nehanda challenge a tweak further, impersonating the Liberation War Heroine whose statue has prompted debate across the divide.
In a video depicting a possessed Madam boss, she says Mbuya Nehanda’s spirit is upon her.
The Mbuya Nehanda challenge has seen many people posing like the recently unveiled statue which depicts a young Mbuya Nehanda which has set tongues wagging.
George Charamba on Twitter defended the artistic work by Mutasa of the statue saying he had a certain objective in portraying a youthful Nehanda. He said;
“Mutasa, the creator of the statue says I chose to capture Nehanda in her youthful priesthood to symbolize the VIGOR OR BUOYANCY OF HER PROPHECY??? How would you counter that?? Anyway, liking this or that version is really the prerogative of the commissioning authority, in this case, Govt of Zimbabwe, which is why the President went to inspect the effort.
“It would be very interesting to see which direction the debate takes when we produce the statue of General Khumalo whose picture no-one has or seen!! How will that be done is verisimilitude is the yardstick???
“Predictably, society will have to be WILLING to SUSPEND DISBELIEF in order to embrace the resultant statue and agree to believe it represents General Khumalo!!! The same way we embrace figures on TOMB OF UNKNOWN SOLDIER!!!! Ndaenda!!!
Yesterday when Mbuya Nehanda statue began trending, people compare her to ai Titi, Moana and many other people took the challenge.
