What are the odds?!
Mashudu Ralephata went out to buy her normal Sunday Times paper one Sunday when she got the biggest surprise ever.
When Mashudu opened the paper, she found a piece of art made by Blessing Ngobeni worth R100,000.
The placement of the artwork is part of Standard Bank’s initiative to get more people interested in the arts and culture scene in South Africa.
Mashudu commented: “I just feel blessed. Because I didn’t even know how many copies were printed – and when I read it was more than 170,000, I knew this is grace that you get once in a lifetime. It only sunk in when we were driving to church in Pretoria after”.
