Supersport United star Thamsanqa Gabuza receives stunning work of art


Supersport United striker Thamsanqa Gabuza has been basking in glory and grabbing headlines thanks to his goal-scoring form and his animated celebrations, and we keep the spotlight on ‘Ganda Ganda’ as he just got himself some new art. 

Gabuza, who is commonly referred to as ‘Ganda Ganda’ has been in fine form this season as he sits third on the goal-scoring charts so far behind Royal AM’s Sepana Letsoalo and Peter Shalulile of  Mamelodi Sundowns.

Gabuza has also built himself somewhat of a reputation of being an entertainer due to his occasional playful moments on social media and around his teammates. 

His ‘Bopha’ celebration has further shown his charismatic nature, and now with every goal he scores come with the expectation of that amusing celebration. 

His celebration has now been adapted by artists named Treasure Mhlongo and Nthabi, who curated some fine artwork of the playing doing the ‘Bopha.’ The latter has also produced similar artwork for Kaizer Chiefs star Itumeleng Khune. 

‘Bopha’ is derived from a popular Amapiano hit song of the same name by Felo Le Tee and Mellow & Sleazy.  

However, Gabuza has added a touch to the celebration that isn’t quite like how people generally dance to it, and the portrait he will now place on his wall will be a beautiful reminder of his early exploits in this campaign. 

His inspired performances have also sparked some whispers of a Bafana Bafana call-up, and a possible opportunity to add to his 12 caps and four goals for the national team. 

Your thoughts, please? 

Can you name a player in the DStv Premiership with a better goal celebration than Gabuza right now?
