- Local celebrity portrait maker Rasta, once again has Mzansi laughing after sharing his surprising painted rendition of DJ Shimza
- The work although vibrant, looks nothing like the musician but that definitely did not stop Shimza from appearing appreciative in a few snaps
- Mzansi social media users could not hold back and took to the comments section to share their savage criticisms of the work
Local Artist Rasta is at it again, this time painting one very questionable painting of popular local DJ Shimza.
Rasta paints DJ Shimza
The artist is definitely not known for his ability to create the likeness of his famous subjects so it's no surprise his latest work raised more than just a few eyebrows.
The hilarious rendition of Shimza left Mzansi with more questions than answers, but the DJ seems satisfied with the work even laughing and shaking hands with Rasta upon receiving the painting.
Social media response
While Shimza might be okay with the work of art, Mzansi social media users are a little less polite. They took to the comments section to share their savage critiques of the work, and honestly- every last reaction had us in stitches.
Check out some of the spicy comments below:
''Whose grandma is this?"
"I want whatever rasta is smoking"
"So rasta is on ads now because of his weird paints?"
@thandograham hilariously wrote:
"What is painful is @Shimza01 gave him a picture of himself wearing a Blazer, jiki Blue t-shirt T-shirt - aka boshwe"
More news on local artists working hard
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Big Xhosa is thankful for the support he's been getting from his fans and took to social media to express this. Since coming onto the scene about a month ago with his SA hip-hop diss track Ninyile, he's released a few other songs which have received over 50 000 views each.
There might've been a few people who doubted him but now it's time to start getting serious. Big Xhosa revealed that he's been getting booked for shows all over the country, despite the fact that people thought he would only trend for a week.
"I got 2 shows in Cape Town tonight, I got 1 in P.E next week and on the same week I got 2 in JHB and that other week I got 1 in Mthatha. Lol some of you were saying I'm only gonna trend for a week then it ends there," wrote Big Xhosa on Twitter.
The rapper thanked everyone who booked him and also thanked his fans.
It looks like Big Xhosa might be here to stay, he's trying his best to stay relevant and it's actually working for him.
