The Daily Sun managed to track the man down and he confirmed that he was perfectly sane and happy about his decision.
He said to the publication:
“I’m not mad. Those backlashing me don’t know why I did this. Tira is my inspiration. He has helped a lot of artists with their careers. I’m talking about Joocy, Dladla Mshunqisi, Tipcee and many more who are now well-known.”
Mdletshe went on to say that Tira was not appreciated enough and the tattoo was his way of giving him props for all he’s done for others.
“When I look at it, I get inspired. It encourages me to help the poor.”
