The symbolism of that moment wasn’t lost on many South Africans, from the celebs to the ordinary folk. One of the celebs who was moved by that moment and how it played out was South African media personality Katlego Maboe.
Taking to his Twitter page, he had celebrated the moment with a with of the event. For him, the most significant was the playing of the song “Nkalakatha” following the win.
