South Africans have had a love-hate-relationship with Lebani Sirenje, who goes by Rasta the Artist, for a while now.

Rasta became famous for painting portraits of deceased celebs and political leaders, and recently he turned his focus on the living as well.

Only hours after Mzansi asked "where's Rasta", the artist showed up and rocked social media with another work of art.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Rasta posted a snap of himself working on a portrait of Robert Mugabe - who passed away last week.

"Rest in eternal power my leader #MugabeFuneral," he captioned the photo.
