Social media users used this opportunity to continue mocking Rasta and his portraits. The artist is often mocked because his painting look nothing like their subjects. Rasta has spoken out before about his frustration with people judging his work, saying that drawing was his passion.
The name suggestions from social media users were hilarious with one user even begging him to reconsider the idea of opening an academy altogether.
“Please don’t do it. I’m down on my knees. Don’t even think of opening something like that.”

Rasta recently got a taste of what it felt like to be drawn inaccurately. Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi decided they had enough of the painter doing injustice to their local heroes and favourite celebs, so they gave him some of his own medicine. They took to social media to share their drawings of Rasta, done very inaccurately, to show the artist what it's like to be on the receiving end of art like that.
