“This is a token of appreciation for your milestone, my brother, your 21 years in the industry and doing music for us. I thought let me as an artist do something that will show him appreciation before he passes away," said Rasta.
The artmaker said that he usually makes portraits of people once they have passed away but he wanted to give Tira his flowers while he is still alive to receive them.
