Despite this, Malope said she was pleasantly surprised by the statue and loves it so much that it now sits in her home. While speaking to Tshisalive, the musician gushed over how she was pleasantly surprised by the statue and had no idea that she was going to be honoured by it:

I fell over immediately after seeing the statue because nobody told me that I was going to receive it. I didn’t even imagine that someone would think of honouring me in such a big way. I love my twin (that’s what I call the statue) so much. It’s with me in my house right now .”

As well as the statue, she also received an R10,000 voucher from Mpumalanga Tourism and a ‘Dr Rebecca Honorary Award’.
