- Rasta took to social media to post his newest creation online
- The infamous artist drew the former IFP president
- His portrait of Mangosuthu Buthelezi left Mzansi divided
Rasta is famous for his portraits of famous people - both alive and those who passed away. On Thursday, the artist, whose real name is Lebani Sirenje, posted a portrait of former IFP leader, Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
Rasta posted a snap of himself working on Buthelezi's portrait, captioning it:
"Former IFP president."
South Africans had a lot to say about Rasta's portrait of the former IFP president. Some said it looked like a self-portrait while others asked if Buthelezi was pouting in the picture.
Twitter user, @Cani_B, commented: "Bra wam but this doesn't look anything like the pictures you are holding. Or are you drawing imaginary friends?"
Other pointed out that Rasta normally paints people who had passed away, asking if he was giving them a signal.
A Twitter user, @chisom98555129, commented: "Heard when Rasta does a drawing it means it's time or it's official. Does this mean..."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Rasta showed off his portrait of the late Robert Mugabe.
"Rest in eternal power my leader #MugabeFuneral," he captioned the photo.
