A local artist did a portrait drawing of muso Sjava but didn't really impress him. In fact, Sjava seemed quite offended by the sketch.

The artist had asked that his tweet with a snap of his drawing be retweeted until Sjava saw it. When the Umama singer saw the tweet, however, he didn't praise the artist or the drawing.

He said: "Cela sihloniphane mfowethu please" which can be translated to "Let’s respect each other, my brother, please."
